Team Mindfulness: what is it and why is it important?
We hosted an online interactive conversation between Megan Reitz and Chris Nichols around Team Mindfulness. Mindfulness at work has so far mainly focused on training people in practices that help them better manage issues like stress and anxiety. It is a ‘go to’ intervention on the wellness agenda. However, rates of burnout and disengagement cannot be addressed exclusively at the individual level – systems and cultures need to change. That’s where collective mindfulness becomes important. This conversation builds on Megan and Michael’s Harvard Business Review article on collective mindfulness to explore how you might develop and support teams who are compassionate, curious and aware.
