TP3 recently held a series of seminars on the subject of Mindfulness for Business Results featuring one of Australia’s leading experts on leadership development, Martine Barclay. Demand for seats at the first of those seminars exceeded room capacity in only a few days, requiring a second, literally by-popular-demand seminar, and additional seminars across Australia. I soon understood that Mindfulness is either a hotter topic in organisational development and human resource circles than I’d imagined, or Martine Barclay was quite the drawcard.

Training, or Learning and Development (L&D), is a central— indeed, critical—part of the modern organisation, large and small and in both private and public sectors across Australia, and an essential part of the national economy.

When I was asked to write an article that would help TP3 clients, my first response was that I really don’t have much time outside of my busy schedule of classroom training to write articles.
