What are people saying at your organization?

He’s disorganized, doesn’t communicate well in meetings, and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. It’s bringing us down!
I’m in meetings all day, and have no time to get my actual work done.
I have too many emails in my inbox. I can’t stay on top of it, and it’s stressing me out. I’m dropping things left and right.
There are just too many little projects going on at the same time. I can’t keep track, and I can’t seem to get anything done.
I’m being asked to do the work of three people. If this keeps up, I’m going to quit or I’m going to burn out.

Nonprofits, now more than ever, face an inherent tension between needing to serve their missions with fewer resources while at the same time needing to take care of employees in a way that sustains them as people and sustains the organization's long term vision for a vibrant, healthy, and productive workplace.  This is particularly true for organizations that are going through a process of transformation.

The staff of nonprofits are experts in their field, but they are not necessarily trained in noticing how their own habits, or the habits of their workplace, can create barriers to important collaboration, can curtail creativity and productivity, and introduce stress and strain on others in the workplace.  

By introducing practical mindfulness techniques into a nonprofit organization, individuals will develop new skills for breaking down these barriers, improving communication, enhancing creativity, and increasing productivity.  In addition to these outcomes, people will be improving their health and their sense of well being.  All of these outcomes benefit the organization, its mission, and its bottom line.
