There have been a lot of talks recently about how mindfulness intervention can help patients with stress, depression, anxiety, sleep, chronic pain, etc. However, do you know that there is ample evidence to show that trainings on mindfulness can also improve work performance.
For example, Reb, J., Narayanan, J., & Chaturvedi, S. (2014), in mindfully leading two studies demonstrated the influence of supervisor trait mindfulness on employee well-being and performance.
Several studies on enhancing communications with others. These include
Cultivating Leadership Presence through Mindfulness. (n.d.). Azar, L. W. J. H. R., & Cook, W.
The Impact of Mindfulness on Leadership Effectiveness in a Healthcare Setting: a pilot study. Reitz, M., & Chaskalson, M. (2016). How to Bring Mindfulness to Your Company's Leadership. Harvard Business Review.
Mindfulness training has also been shown to benefit workers with emotionally demanding jobs. Employees working in occupations involving interactions with the public are confronted with high emotional demands on a daily basis (specifically they have to comply with emotional display rules that are prescribed by the work role, such as those in the airline, retail and food industries.) Glomb, Duffy, Bono, & Yang, 2011).
Recent researches on Mindfulness in the workplace have identified benefits like "improvement strategic thinking", "innovation leadership in complex conditions" and many more. p
