Collaborative Presence

Mindful Organizations
Make the Difference

It’s no secret that work can be a stressful place, with long hours and hard deadlines making the situation worse. However, it is possible to make a positive difference and to create a more mindful working environment through some simple changes and practices. Mindfulness is a way to be more aware of what is happening in the present moment, to reduce stress, and to be more resilient.

The Benefits of Mindfulness in
the Workplace

At Collaborative Presence, our core values are centered around helping individuals and organizations unlock the full potential of mindfulness. We believe that work has fundamentally changed, and with it, the role work plays in our lives.

Employee Wellbeing

Research has demonstrated that mindfulness can have multiple beneifts in the workplace, enhancing overall effectiveness and health.

Interpersonal Communications

Effective communication is crucial for organizational success, but it can become difficult during times of change and competition. Mindfulness can help reduce negative reactivity in communication and increase prosocial behavior, enabling more authentic and wise communication.

Emotional Regulation

The constant need for change and innovation can cause ongoing emotional reactivity, which can make it difficult to remain balanced and grounded. Mindfulness can increase self-evaluation and internal tolerance for negative experiences, providing greater clarity and courage to address challenging circumstances.

Attention and Focus

Distractions and diversions in the workplace can detract from productivity and lead to a lack of focus. Mindfulness skills have been shown to reduce attention towards distraction, helping individuals and teams to direct their energy towards the most important activities.

Cognitive Flexibility

In today’s rapidly changing and complex business environment, cognitive flexibility is a critical skill that allows organizations to adapt and innovate. Mindfulness practices can support increased cognitive flexibility, enabling individuals to generate and receive diverse perspectives, reduce bias, and support divergent and convergent thinking.

At Collaborative Presence, we can help your organization harness the power of mindfulness to achieve these benefits and more. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help your organization become healthier, more effective, and more collaborative.

Areas of Practice


We work with individuals at all levels of the orgnization to strengthen their ability to be present, balanced, and bring their best selves to their role. Areas of focus can include such domains as communication, decision making, focus, and cognitive flexibility for dynamic environments.


In addition to working with individuals, we also serve functional groups, teams, and departments within organizations. We understand that each group has unique needs and challenges, and we tailor our mindfulness programs to meet those needs and help them work more effectively and collaboratively.

Whether you’re a CEO, manager, or team leader, we can help you implement mindfulness programs that will benefit both you and your organization as a whole.

Our Values

Our Values

We believe that every person is unique and brings a variety of strengths to their job.
