the essence of Organisations

The need for people to learn evidence-based skills and practical strategies to improve vitality and wellbeing has never been greater. We often hear about stress that leads to sickness and burnout, about bullying, about mistakes made under pressure, mistakes that sometimes cost hugely in terms of time and personnel. It’s essential to have means of avoiding these challenges as much as possible and, when faced with them, being able to address them efficiently and effectively.

Using HeartMath’s training programs, the essence empowers organisations to create and sustain wellbeing. The HeartMath® Institute in California has been undertaking scientific research in the area of stress, heart-brain function, health and performance for over 25 years. Informed by this research, the Institute has developed programs to enable people to self-regulate stress and energy, moment by moment.

HeartMath’s programs provide a practical framework of emotional self-regulation tools and coherence-building practices. They help people gain more clarity and optimise performance, which can facilitate a stronger identity with organisational purpose and core values. Knowing how to apply the heart science enhances staff culture, productivity and innovation.

Further benefits include:

  • Heightened creativity
  • Increased regenerative sleep
  • Improved relational awareness in professional interactions
  • Increased ability to handle challenging clients and situations
  • Enhanced ability to focus, process information and solve problems

HeartMath training and mentoring is for people from a wide range of organisations. Each workplace has its own specific and different work requirements, but whatever our role or responsibilities, we all have the capacity to create and improve our wellbeing, and perform at our best.
