Mindful Operational Research Practice: Being Open, Kind and Still: Workshop

In today's world many people (including OR practitioners) often adopt an automatic pilot mode to deal with their activities and practice. This often leads to respond automatically to situations by focusing on using the past as an anchor or foreseeing a future (focusing on outcomes). Ideas of mindfulness and creativity are used in this workshop to encourage OR practitioners to better understand themselves in their practice. Mindfulness brings the important of being in the present and developing awareness about one's own thoughts and body sensations. Some mindfulness and creative improvisation techniques are to practised in the workshop to help us generate more and adequate, meaningful choices for thinking, acting and living our OR practice.
