Mindfulness At Play actively cooperates with all types of organizations (corporate, public, non-profit) who understand and value the natural logic, known benefits, and limitless potential of also focusing on the genuine well-being, self-empowerment and motivation of their teams.
Our company and its team seeks to enhance personal development, engagement, and performance in the workplace at two levels - individual and organizational - and align capabilities and competencies with business and human objectives. Our belief is that everyone has the capability to reach their potential, resulting in an increase in work performance and overall well-being.
"The successful leader may be the person who recognizes that we all have talents and who thus sees her or his main job as encouraging mindfulness in those being led." - Ellen J. Langer
MAPchooses to play a key supportive role in the ongoing evolution of consciousness happening in the corporate world and throughout society. An illustration of this growing trend are for example, "conscious businesses and initiatives" that put social and environmental concerns alongside the usual aspirations of profit-making commerce, and organizations that choose to develop a genuine culture of caring.
Inviting Mindfulness and Well-Being into the workplace is an integral aspect of this positive movement towards a more inclusive and responsible world.
In addition to learning about the science underpinning why mindfulness works, participants get to experience mindfulness practices for themselves, thereby realise its value for peak workplace performance.

This workshop will help your leaders/managers articulate their personal vision, their leadership identity, and even energize them in their roles! This will be done through an approach that builds on LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology -- meaning we will be asking different questions about our work and our role/s, building symbolic and metaphorical models, and sharing these builds and our insights to each other (Kristiansen, Hansen & Nielsen, 2009) guided by the principles of compassionate coaching.
Each Session can accommodate comfortably up to 10 persons.
"An increasing number of high-level organisations and corporations are looking to mindfulness as a core strategy for improving resilience, focus and performance, and for fostering the kinds of qualities that make good leaders the kind of leaders that team members want to follow."— Stephen McKenzie
