1097. A Unique Perspective on Merging Business and Mindfulness
“People are starting to segment. I think that is a really slippery slope for businesses. I don’t believe most of the political stuff belongs in business. I think there is a role for mindfulness on a couple of levels. One is that it is primarily focused. Teaching people to focus makes their stress levels go down and improves their performance. At least that is my experience. And when someone learns it at work, they take it home and share it with their family, they take it to the school board, to the teams they coach, their kids get it, and it filters throughout the community. My idea is that mindfulness is not something you need to do just 10 minutes a day. It is something you can really incorporate in your workday. And I also think there is room for leaders to be more mindful, less political and less derisive. I think business is the greatest catalyst for change.”
