Did you know that many successful businesses are run by people who meditate? Just to name a few… Ford Motor Company, Reading is Fun, Zappos, Google, Apple, and even the Pentagon.
There are hundreds of both private and public sector organizations that have realized that the inner sciences of mindfulness, body-mind balance, possibility thinking and appreciative inquiry, deep presence and listening, and co operative relationship skills make a powerful contribution to the outer success and effectiveness of their company’s goals and bottom lines, not to mention workforce wellness and employee satisfaction.
In a recent interview, Jack Canfield, the super successful author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book franchaise and success coach, said: “If someone were to ask me, what’s a really good business tool, I would say, meditation. It taps you into your own creativity, it makes you sensitive to the marketplace, to your employees and helps you build a more creative and harmonic workplace”
