“Mindfulness in general - and the Corporate-Based Mindfulness program in particular - has the potential to change our lives and interactions in the work place. I have experienced that our work with mindfulness has contributed to greater presence in our everyday life, increased job satisfaction and increased personal efficiency.” - Dorthe Sorensen, Director, The Danish Center for Competence Development
Corporate-Based Mindfulness Training (CBMT) is designed to help busy people with little time and high ambitions to meet the challenges of a hectic working life, such as tough deadlines, endless emails, and high demands on time, energy and flexibility.
CBMT is already used by companies such as Google, Sony Corporation and Carlsberg to improve personal productivity and professional performance, build better working relationships between colleagues or business partners, and to curb stress. It is based on three principles:
The training is embedded in the activities of daily work life, not an add-on activity that consumes lots of time.
Easy to apply
CBMT presents the essence of mindfulness training as a clear and simple step-by-step approach.
Based on scientific research
Although the method derives from powerful but esoteric ‘eastern’ practices, CBMT is always presented within the framework of modern neurology and psychology and in a terminology that is familiar to people who work in a corporate environment.
Corporate-Based Mindfulness Training is recognised as a Universal Education programme by the Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom. It has been developed by The Potential Project, which operates internationally from its base in Denmark. For further information, visit www.potentialproject.com.
The Potential Project was founded by Rasmus Hougaard, who has 20 years' experience in mindfulness and a corporate background. He has run training courses in Australia, Europe and Asia.
