Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT)

In a broad number of studies, increased mindfulness and/or psychological flexibility has been found to:

  • Improve focus and productivity by helping people concentrate on tasks for longer periods of time and reduce anxiety.

  • Increase the salience of tasks by linking them explicitly to goals, behaviors and values, thereby increasing motivation and enhancing creativity.

  • Improve mental health and work performance, including learning and innovation

  • Help people to recognize when to persist and when to change behavior, rather than being stuck in ineffective patterns of behavior.

  • Help manage thoughts and emotions more effectively leading to increased resilience.

  • Increase employees perceived levels of job control and this led to improvements in absence rates and general mental health.

  • Positively correlated with outcomes measuring job performance and satisfaction over a 1-year interval
