What is the Masterclass about?

How can work organisations best function to ensure high quality, continually improving performance while ensuring the well-being and flourishing of those who work within them? How can we create cultures that have common core values that are enacted rather than merely espoused? How can we deal with the varied and complex challenges of running modern organisations, at the same time as ensuring the growth and development of those who work within them? What can we individually do that will make a difference? This masterclass offers answers to these questions and suggests that we can be successful by focusing on core culture elements.

Who is it for?

This day is part of a series of Workplace Masterclasses being introduced by Oxford and Bangor Mindfulness Centres.  Open to all individuals with an interest in how mindfulness can support and enhance personal and organisational wellbeing; these Workplace Masterclasses are particularly informative for practioners delivering mindfulness based training in the workplace.
