  • To get the most value from this course it is beneficial to spend a week or so reflecting on your workplace and the way that you work. There are activities within this course to help you to engage staff using mindful management techniques although your outcomes from this program will be strengthened by the more you understand your own actions.

Mindful People Development in the Workplace is a course aimed at developing a Buddhist perspective to managing staff. The program commences with creating motivational and feel good workplaces to ensure the work space is inviting for your staff.

Creativity strategies and innovative thinking are then introduced to help you enable ‘out of the box’ thinking and approaches to work, combined with techniques to setup learning teams. The final session brings these lessons together to sustainably build effective and productive teams.

To achieve the most effective outcomes from this course, it is recommended that you leave a gap of at least a week between lectures to reflect on and implement lessons learnt. In this regard, the program should take 6-8 weeks to complete. Worksheets have been provided in addition to video content.
