We tend to spend a lot of time in our heads: daydreaming, planning, wondering, deciding. Most of the time this isn’t an issue for us. In fact, it’s healthy for us to spend at least some time, each day, just free-form thinking – allowing our mind to do as it pleases.
Sometimes, though, this tendency is not so helpful, and can result in adverse impacts on our health, performance and relationships, particularly when our thoughts are repetitive, uncomfortable, distracting, persistent or overwhelming.
The good news is that we can do something about this – to minimise the amount of time we spend lost in thought, increase our present-moment awareness and improve the depth and quality of our attention.
In this interactive, skills-based workshop, participants learn how to enhance their mental resilience by increasing self-awareness, harnessing their attention, improving mental agility and better managing unhelpful thoughts and emotional reactions.
We teach participants how to apply the skill of mindfulness to their everyday lives – to stay calm, balanced and on task in the face of change and uncertainty.
- Emotional resilience and mindfulness: enhancing health, performance and relationships
- Responding to change: developing an open, aware and flexible mind-set
- Awareness and regulation of thoughts and emotions
- Skills training: practice of mindfulness-based resilience techniques
- Stop. Notice. Focus. – mindfulness in action
- Integrating mindfulness skills into working and personal life.
Our resilience workshops are skills-based and highly interactive. Participants learn and practice a range of skills they can use throughout their day. To support this we provide high-quality resources including:
- Comprehensive session notes in pdf format
- Mp3 audio files of the resilience techniques delivered during the workshops, and
- Unlimited phone and email contact.
Working Mind app
Through the Working Mind app, participants receive permanent access to key training resources including the workshop notes, mp3 audio techniques, research links and workplace integration tools. The app supports participants to integrate their mindfulness training into working and personal life.
Please note that our resilience workshops are typically of 1-2 hours duration, and are delivered face-to-face or virtually to workplace groups. Recommended maximum group size is 16 participants for 2-hour workshops and 30 participants for 60-90 minute workshops.
Working Mind resilience workshops are available to workplaces around Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, Launceston and the Gold Coast.
