Mindfulness Is a Leadership Strategy and Competitive Advantage You Cannot Afford to Ignore
It's simple. Mindfulness is good business.
Integrating mindfulness programs into your corporate culture can result in measurable increases in productivity, enhanced wellbeing and lower annual healthcare costs—all positively impacting bottom line profitability. Recent reports in the Harvard Business Review, Forbes and The New York Times confirm that mindfulness is at the forefront of an emerging leadership strategy.
According to the American Institute for Stress, the cost of stress in the American workplace is estimated at almost $300 billion annually due to absenteeism, lower productivity, turnover, and rising health care costs. But that is quickly changing as more companies are incorporating meditation and mindfulness into their organizations.
A white paper produced by UNC Kenan-Flager Business School highlighted studies by the National Institute of Health UK, the University of Massachusetts, and the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Harvard University that continues to validate the benefits that mindfulness in the workplace can provide.
Based on these findings, large corporations such as Intel, Aetna, SalesForce, Google, Hughes Aircraft, and Deutsch Bank routinely provide stress-reduction training to their employees. The training and adoption of mindfulness in the workplace have increased employee productivity and significantly decreased absenteeism, as well as workers’ compensation, and disability claims from stress-related illnesses.
The techniques your workforce will learn require no previous meditation experience and do not involve special sitting techniques, hours of concentration, or any talk of religion. There is nothing complicated or difficult about any of the training or techniques we offer.

“Mindful leadership entails being aware of one’s internal compass. It enables a leader to respond to a situation as it arises, to respond to the reality of constant changes from a place of deep calm and focus, and to have the presence of mind to face the reality of any situation.”
“The kind of perspective that brings focus and clarity comes from space. And while we may not always have a choice about clearing our calendars, we can make the choice to clear our minds of the habitual momentum that blocks creativity and compassion.”
“When mindfulness is fully integrated into leadership, exponential progress can be made.”
