Life is a series of challenges and lessons. This can be especially true in the workplace, which is where most of us spend more of our waking hours than anywhere else. In this class, we will learn ways to consciously choose how we see, approach and respond to what we face in life, to embrace what we are presented with as an opportunity to learn, to develop, and to consciously transform our experience into one of growth and fulfillment. We will explore the meaning and value of mindfulness in the workplace and in every aspect of our lives, and learn tools to sustain our mindfulness throughout the day. We will examine how employing a positive perspective, even in the presence of overwhelming challenges, can improve our physical and mental health, our relationships – both professional and personal, and the outcome of our experiences.

The understandings and practices learned in this class, when applied in the workplace, can

  • Improve our experiences and outcomes,
  • Positively impact the experiences and outcomes of our colleagues,
  • And create a paradigm of proactivity, creativity and constructive approaches to new ideas and experiences.

Participants will also have tools and understandings with which to frame their perspective of their experiences and their interactions in a positive light and proactively transform their challenges into opportunities.
