COURSE IN MINDFULLNESS CIM’S Resurgence Mindfulness & Stress Management Program For Corporate
Legendary Words “If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is, if you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things – that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It’s a discipline; you have to practice it.” – Steve Jobs, Founder, Apple Computers.
Why Mindfulness Studies of mindfulness in a business context has shown that increases in mindfulness are associated with increased creativity and decreased burnout (eg. Langer, Haffernan, Kiester, 1988). Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer asserts that mindfulness on the job can increase our flexibility, productivity, innovation, leadership ability and satisfaction. (Langer, 1989) Increasingly world class organizations are looking at Mindfulness as a competitive advantage and are creating dedicated programs like SIY in Google, Mindful Leadership in General Mills, Empower in Shell, etc. Mindfulness leads to better emotional resilience, positive responses and reduces cardiovascular risk. Mindfulness acts as the bridge between corporate capitalism and eastern mysticism which are seemingly incongruous.
Why CIM ? CIM takes a holistic approach to mindfulness meditations by being rooted in Eastern wisdom. CIM is an initiative of Stress Management Academy is conducting Mindfulness and Stress Management programs for reputed clients across the globe since 1985 (more than 25 years). We are the pioneers in India for Mindfulness based corporate programs.
