Until recently, little research has been conducted on the benefits of encouraging spirituality and inner focus among employees within an organizational structure. Yet as companies and forward-looking leaders continue to search for new pathways to achieve organizational success, and more willingly accept the individual as a whole being, that attitude is shifting.

Mindfulness is the active cultivation of non-judgmental awareness by paying attention to the present moment and our situations as they are. This ancient practice of self-awareness is applicable to modern organizational culture. Measured through enhanced wellness, lower absenteeism and employee retention, recent data suggest a strong correlation between spirituality and the workplace – with a positive change in job satisfaction of nearly 65%!

Quite simply: healthy inner lives impact outer performance. This experiential presentation illustrates techniques that empower you to integrate the whole person – mind, body, heart and spirit – into your organization today. You’ll learn how to establish the groundwork of coach-like culture rooted in ancient spiritual practices and mindfulness.
