Wearing Well-being in the Workplace – two part series

Heedfulness - Enriching Workplace Relationships

This month we discuss the idea of heedfulness, in juxtaposition to last months conversation about mindfulness.  Heedful: aware of and attentive to. Synonyms: taking heed, attentive, mindful, thoughtful, careful” – it doesn’t matter which dictionary you consult, the word ‘heedful’ is depicted as synonymous with the word ‘mindful’. There is currently a strong ground-swell of interest in and research about mindfulness – so what, then, is the value of looking at the synonymous ‘heedful’ and ‘heedfulness’? The principal driver behind the adoption of the word and concept of heedfulness is a shift from looking inward and situating oneself very much and mindfully in the immediate context of being ‘where you are’ and ‘in the world’ to investing that same level of paying attention on purpose to others, what they are doing, and how you and they are inter-related. Research literature, (predominantly located in sense-making) tends to focus on the concept of ‘heedful inter-relating’ and the necessity of bringing a conscious awareness to intersecting relationships and constructive connections at work and so presents a topic worthy of discussion in considering well-being in the workplace.
Dr Cate Jerram revisits the world of sense-making (from her PhD) to build on the concepts presented last month by Dr Olga Muzychenko, developing our awareness ourselves being 'alive and awake' with mindfulness to heedful inter-relating.
