Performance and Wellbeing.
Change the habit patterns of the mind. These scientific and evidence-based methods help instil useful mental habits that optimise individual and team performance.
Today’s employees and managers are forced to deal with an unprecedented amount of information and distraction. It is reducing attention spans.
If it’s not emails, texts, and instant messaging, then it’s phone calls, co-workers, and constantly changing demands and deadlines. Basex research found that 50 percent of a knowledge worker’s day is spent “managing information” and that an excess of information results in “a loss of ability to make decisions, process information, and prioritise tasks.”
In a modern world that values activity, achievements and results, it is perhaps surprising that more people and organisations are turning to meditation. For all the activity of modern society, many still feel a fundamental need for silence, inner peace, and clarity. Meditation can reduce stress and help us relax; but, it can also give us a lot more.
These are some of the benefits that meditation can give your employees:
– Improved cognitive function – better concentration, memory & learning ability
– Reduced costs of staff absenteeism caused by stress
– Improved productivity and overall staff wellbeing
– Awareness/Mindfulness of staff
– Enhanced employee job satisfaction
– A visible and tangible Corporate Responsibility stance
All sessions are practical. Participants learn by experiencing it for themselves. Education is a big part of our internal process and we place a strong emphasis on sustainable lesson plans. They will ultimately help improve the happiness and performance levels of those who partake.
Clients recognise that by having a calmer and clearer mind, they will feel better and be more productive. If you choose to experience it with your team, please promote it to everyone and encourage them to participate. They will all learn a new skill that helps to improve the quality of their life and those around them.
Onsite programs, conferences and events are available before, during and after business hours.
Mr Meditate helps organisations create and maintain positive workplace cultures, fostering greater productivity, enhanced individual performance, and ultimately producing considerable increases in profit for businesses.
1. Corporate Programs (see also Pilot Programs)
Specialising in increasing productivity and wellbeing of employees, Mr Meditate helps organisations transform their business culture. By employing these strategies, successful companies aim to help individuals reach their potential by teaching them practices which will assist their day to day functioning. When employees are happier at work, they are more engaged, affable and ready to take on any challenges they may face in the office. These enable corporate objectives to be realised faster as employees are able to do more in less time.
Mr Meditate teaches the strategies used by Google, Facebook and Twitter. We show how cutting edge, revolutionary practices enable employees to achieve and sustain top performance while reducing stress levels and improving overall wellbeing. Mental Health, the highest growing medical concern, is addressed and skills are taught to maintain and improve it.
Research is first conducted to understand the areas that an organisation wishes to improve. According to these responses, programs are tailored to suit particular business needs.

We teach skills that assist in raising focus, improving concentration and reducing stress. These abilities help new employees settle into organisations faster and are able to contribute more effectively to your team.
Promoting an employee to a particular position assumes added responsibilities and usually greater pressures. Mr Meditate teaches strategies as implemented by the world’s top organisations. Their employees are able to deal with extra pressure and accountability in a balanced and more objective way.
3. Conferences, retreats and events
Developing strategies, solving problems, launching products and exchanging information are the common reasons for running these types of exercises. Mr Meditate adds value by running team-building exercises to raise people’s morale and to encourage effective communication amongst employees.
When companies undergo large operational changes, it is important to ensure that teams are onside and contribute as part of the process. It is an excellent platform to share results of new studies and to keep all professionals updated. We incorporate meditation for greater focus and concentration; and speed thinking to accelerate learning and idea generation.
