A Mindful Workplace Starts With You!

This website is the result of an ongoing collaboration among leaders of mindfulness programs from a growing number of companies. Our vision is to fuel a game-changing movement of mindfulness in the workplace that promotes human flourishing. Our mission is to create mindful workplace cultures by developing and connecting leaders of mindfulness programs in the workplace to share best practices and build community.

To that end, we have joined together in a Mindful Workplace Alliance and organized a Mindful Work Month for October of 2018. There is a mindful work theme for each week in October. Check back here on this blog for weekly posts starting on Sunday, September 30th, and on each Sunday after that in October. You can also follow @MindfulWorkMove on Twitter for daily tweets associated with the theme for the week. Finally, we invite you to share on your social networks using the #MindfulWorkMonth hashtag about your experiences bringing more mindfulness into your own workplace.

Starting a movement is not easy. Let's watch a movement happen, start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and dissect some lessons:

It was the first follower that transformed a lone nut into a leader. There is no movement without the first follower. We're told we all need to be leaders, but that would be really ineffective. The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow. When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first person to stand up and join in.
