Mindfulness in a Work Culture

Posted on Updated on








What would this look like in a school or business environment? This is what you might see in a culture that encourages and develops a practice of being present:

  • The organization develops mindful leaders who practice every day.
  • At the beginning of each day, all employees in the organization take some time to meditate before they start their work.
  • Teams take a few minutes before each meeting to quiet their minds through meditation, in order to be prepared to be fully present during the meeting.
  • Employees are encouraged to take time to practice throughout the day.
  • Employees have the opportunity to be part of a group that practices meditation together.
  • Employees are simply welcomed to participate in meditation opportunities; it is not forced.
  • A mindful culture is recognized as a healthy opportunity for personal and professional development.
  • All employees respect and encourage their colleagues to practice mediation even if they decide not to participate.

    Mindfulness in the workplace would be an incredible addition! I have to ask- I found your site in my special needs reader feed and I did an internship at the LABB school just outside of Boston in 1996 as an Occupational Therapy student with Gina. Is this LABBB one in the same?

      What town did you do your internship? The LABBB districts include: Lexington, Arlington, Burlington, Bedford, and Belmont so if it was one of those towns you definitely did. Where you from Tufts?
