The benefits of reducing employee stress are innumerable, as relaxed employees have a lower rate of absenteeism, higher rate of productivity, and enhanced resilience to workplace challenges. Reducing stress in the workplace is no longer only a matter of company culture--in today's economic climate, it is a priority that effective businesses cannot afford to neglect.
"The Mindful and Effective Employee" presents a complete program based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) that employee trainers, human resource managers, life coaches, group therapists, occupational health professionals, and organizational development practitioners can use to enhance employee productivity and performance . In three group sessions, trainers can deliver ACT psychological and behavioral skills that will make lasting changes in employee resilience and productivity. This program is created by the world's leading experts on ACT training in workplace settings.
The program outlined in this book is designed to produce increased awareness among employees, a reduction in the need to engage in stressful and unneccesary internal struggles with unwanted thoughts and feelings, and an enhanced sense of personal resilience in facing challenging events or situations.
By learning effective mindfulness strategies, employees can gain direction, meaning, and purpose in their work life.
