Imagine commanding a Dragon Boat. You’re tirelessly pounding the drum and relaying instructions, but no matter what you say or do, your teammates are rowing out of sync and clashing into one another. You’re exhausted. Exasperated, you wonder, “Why can’t they just do things right?!”
Amidst your own anger, you don’t realise how breathless your teammates are. Their arms are sore, and fatigue plagues their faces. Despite not getting things ‘right’, they’re doing their best to row the boat correctly, and are quickly burning out.
You take a pause and begin to reflect. “Am I communicating things effectively? They are working so hard, am I listening with empathy, to understand what they are communicating to me?”
(This was a scenario demonstrated at one of the Hush@Workplace projects)
Did you know, that poor communication can cost your employees $37 billion, and burnout can lead to a loss of about $226 billion, due to decreased productivity?
What more can you (CXOs, HRs, D&Is and Department Heads) do to support your employees?
Every workplace differs in dynamics and culture, everyone needs that Hush; to take a pause, slow down, and reflect for better clarity, for better mental well-being, and increased productivity.
We are continuously looking to co-create refreshing Hush experiences for your people development, and to meet the different needs that you may have.
From an hour long empathy session, to a two-day leadership retreat in Silence, Hush works closely with you to customise your sessions.

I believe that such (Hush) sessions are useful for our cancer support group patients and staff. We often treat symptoms with drugs, but if patients can tap their psychological reserves, they will be more aware of how they can help themselves instead of being filled with fear about the future.

…we first connected with Hush through a deaf member of our team. The most significant moments were at the end of the sessions where we were encouraged to share with others our experiences which created a stronger team bond…for many of us it was the realization that just making time in the day to take a short break in silence can be very refreshing and help relieve much of the stress we can get from work and life.

Hush TeaBar was with us last year and brought to our offices the wonderful experience of ‘Rush to Hush’. This social movement impressed me with its calm and creative approach to the social challenge of hearing impairment. Experiencing the TeaRitual at the Hush TeaBar was interesting on many levels, as it took me on a reflective journey. The TeaRistas from the silent world touched the hearts and souls of many at DBS.

We see you – through the good times and the bad. We feel your endless exhaustion, and working hours that never seem to end. We see your stress.
We also see your smiles, joy, and reverberating laughter. We want to let you know that you are not alone, in times of sorrow and joy.
We can’t stop time, but we can make time in the moment to care for ourselves, be it to rest or rejoice. Let us support you by giving you a safe space of silence to take a pause.
As teachers, taking care of the students’ wellbeing is a full-time job, but when was the last time you took care of yourselves? Introduce Hush to your school and remember to take a pause.
As future leaders of our society, the #YoungXHush programme encourages the younger generation to step up to practice and advocate for resilience, inclusivity and empathy in our society.
