Practise Mindfulness

Mindfulness is big business. Apps are growing by the dozen and lots of mega-companies are getting on board, even bringing in Buddhist monks. While mainstreaming mindfulness isn’t a bad thing, the truth is that mindfulness starts with the individual. It’s about each person making a conscious choice to become more aware, more present and more available.

What teams will explore

  • A definition of mindfulness for real people
  • Why busy people love ‘micro-mindfulness’
  • Value of mono-tasking and how to do it
  • Increasing your grey matter: ‘grow your brain’
  • Long-term benefits of mindfulness practice

What teams will apply

  • A practical understanding of mindfulness
  • Simple ‘micromindfulness’ techniques
  • Focus in work, unmoved by distractions
  • Practices for enhancing quality of thought
  • A daily practice (in 10 minutes or less!)

Working with THINKA was easy and enjoyable. Ben really listened to hear the needs of the group and the outcomes we were wanting to create and then put together a great session that was really interactive. He created a safe space for everyone to be vulnerable and go deep in to the work.

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
