You bring the lunch, I'll provide the learning
These days there never seems to be enough time to do everything, let alone spare people to go on training courses but organisations can’t neglect learning and development if they want people to thrive.
Whilst lunch-and-learns are not the time for required company or compliance training, they do provide a means to complement more formal development activities.
The most successful lunch-and-learns are voluntary, informal and focus on developing soft skills or knowledge sharing.
Well-being sessions on topics such as mindfulness are now regularly included in lunch and learn programmes.
Masterclass: Taste of Mindfulness
1 hour Lunch-and-Learn
In this interactive session, attendees learn the what, where, when, why and how of mindfulness.
The one hour presentation seamlessly blends neuroscience, psychology and the workings of the mind with practical activities so that not only is an understanding of mindfulness gained but also experienced.
Learning includes how to respond rather than react, how to dial down the stress response and how regular meditation impacts us positively even at the cellular level.
Included is an optional guided meditation practice that attendees can then go on to use in daily life.
Participants leave knowing:
what mindfulness is (and what it isn't),
how it can benefit them in work and out,
a means to recentre and refocus,
whether this is something they want to take further.
To ensure the session meets company objectives and is effectively promoted, I will work with you to plan both the communication and content about your event.
Organisations generally book these sessions in response to employees expressing interest in learning more about mindfulness and to gauge interest in running in-house workplace mindfulness training course.
What others say
"I wanted to offer mindfulness as a means to support my team’s mental health during lockdown. We asked Tracey to provide an online introductory Taste of Mindfulness session.
"I wasn’t sure what to expect but the presentation was awesome. She was really engaging and the content pitched perfectly for the audience; well organised and easy to follow.
The webinar, although voluntary, was well attended and feedback was positive about how useful the session was."
