The Authentic Colleague: Mindfulness in the Workplace

About The Authentic Colleague: Mindfulness in the Workplace

Traditionally we rely on our managers, supervisors, and leaders to set the workplace tone, map out the business priorities and guide the way. Yet, the 21st-century global workplace is introducing fresh dynamics that are reframing the “colleague” not “the boss” as the primary workplace relationship. Being an “authentic colleague” – adaptive, reliable, and trustworthy – is fast becoming the vital ingredient to success on the job.

During this 75-minute presentation, we will explore this emerging workplace trend and how the simple act of mindfulness meditation can unleash our natural skills for being an “Authentic Colleague.”

During this program, we will:

  • Explore how emerging workplace trends like agile scrum-teams, continuous improvement engineering or “work from anywhere (WFA)” hybrid organizations are emphasizing collaboration and collegiality
  • Discuss some core social intelligence skills that define “authentic colleague”
  • Learn how to practice mindfulness awareness meditation
  • And discuss how such a simple act can cultivate natural social intelligence skills.
