the essence of Organisations

Today’s global situation is presenting considerable challenges for many. The concept of ‘workplace’ is in the process of being re-envisioned and re-defined. To create the solutions we’ll need for these challenges, no longer is it going to be enough to rely on the intellect of the brain. With the discovery of sensory neurons in our physical heart in the early 1990’s, it is time we took our ‘heart brain’ and ‘heart intelligence’ seriously.

HeartMath’s scientific research in this field has now resulted in about 400 research papers. Their programs, tools and/or technology are now in approximately 80 countries. This demand stems from personal experience and evidence. What’s significant is that this research relates to basic human physiology, which is inclusive of race, culture, gender or age. Every one of us has the capacity to self-regulate and improve our own wellbeing, moment by moment.

What this means for organisations is less staff illness and improved relationships and performance. This applies whether you are part of an organisation that has continued to thrive, or one that is in the process of re-establishing or reinventing. As you explore new opportunities and ways forward I invite you to contact the essence to discuss how both heart and brain intelligence can help you create the most effective solutions, promote harmonious relationships and enhance efficiencies, productivity and wellness.

Other benefits include:

  • Enhanced focus, clarity and resilience
  • Increased regenerative sleep
  • Heightened creativity and innovation
  • Improved relational awareness in professional interactions
  • Increased ability to handle challenging clients and situations

Each workplace has its own requisites but, irrespective of our role or responsibilities, we all have the capacity to optimise performance and fulfill our human potential. the essence can enable this and help ensure wellbeing in the process.
