Upcoming Community Meeting

Community Meeting with Ellen Choi

Mindfulness in the Workplace: The benefits and downside of Mindfulness at work

Thursday October 19th, 2017


Mount Sinai Hospital,
600 University Avenue Toronto, Ontario
14th floor
NEW MEETING ROOM: The room has no number, but it is located right by the main elevators.

While there is a growing body of research that has shown mindfulness has salutary effects on emotions, performance, and well-being, there have been calls for more research that examines the dark side of mindfulness. This presentation will review two studies: one where mindfulness demonstrates positive relationships to performance consistent with what theory would predict; and another where mindfulness is amplifying negative emotions and envious behaviour. The implications of these findings will be discussed.

Ellen Choi has been researching the effects of mindfulness on workplace outcomes since 2012 as a doctoral student at the Ivey School of Business. She has created research-based mindfulness programs designed for a variety of audiences and loves sharing mindfulness with executives, students, and really any one that exhibits the faintest indication of interest.
