Mindfulness, resilience & agility

Focusing on the mind leads to improved performance

Wellbeing is one of the hot workplace topics of the 21st Century. Organisations are increasingly concerned about the impact of constant and unpredictable change on their employees and the extent to which this can impede performance. Rialto works to increase employee resilience and agility so individuals feel confident and able to successfully deal with current and future challenges.

Improving employee wellbeing leads to increased productivity

Challenging and uncertain circumstances mean organisations must be able to respond to both planned and unexpected change and these difficult conditions look set to prevail in the foreseeable future.

It will be the agile, flexible and resilient leaders who are best able to chart a course through the choppy waters that may lie ahead for some organisations. Such leaders are also realising that the cognitive and emotional resources of their colleagues in turn determine the health, resilience and future performance of the business.

The role of mindfulness in business performance strategy

Rialto consultants are experts in the areas of mindfulness, resilience and agility. They help leaders to understand the importance of self-regulation, attention and awareness. Mindfulness involves paying purposeful attention to what is going on around us in the moment. It requires attributes such as openness and curiosity. We are all too familiar with its opposite: a neglectful, distracted state that’s often described as autopilot.

Helping employees to acquire the skills required for mindfulness brings many individual and organisational benefits, including:

  • enhanced focus and attention
  • increased self-awareness and mindfulness of others
  • increased ability to handle stressful situations
  • greater cognitive effectiveness and capacity for decision-making
  • stronger sense of purpose
  • increased creativity.

Integrating mindfulness in core talent processes

Individuals need to be emotionally resilient if they are to perform in the workplace and be sufficiently responsive and agile to deal with new challenges. Such resilience also enables them to let go and recover from any setbacks rather than dwelling on negative situations.

Mindfulness is a powerful tool for building resilience. By integrating it into core talent processes such as onboarding, performance management and leadership development, organisations can improve the overall wellbeing of the workforce which in turn leads to improved and sustained performance.
