Why corporate must adopt Mindfulness?Published: Nov 3rd, 2019 03:56 pm
PricewaterhouseCoopers(PWC), McKinsey & company, Star India, General Electric, Samsung, Volkswagen, ICICI… Is there is any common thread among these great corporate entities?
Let’s add some more ‘successful’ corporate names ;
Ranbaxy, Satyam Computers, IL&FS, Sterling Biotech, AIG, Lehman Brothers, Enron …
Now, the common thread appears to be cheating, defrauding and embezzlement from senior management personnel running the affairs of these corporate organizations!
Corporate have been investing huge sums of money in recruiting, retaining and developing the talents among their personnel through elaborate training programs which includes team building, psychometric tests, skill enhancement, etc.
Alas! Most of them are ignoring Mindfulness, without which the real effectiveness of any such training program will become questionable, and the happening at the few organisations mentioned in the beginning is the pointer.
In the race of chasing the numbers (money and what it can buy, to be precise), people are being robotized shredding the human factors. This is leading to stress, depression and total disregard towards holistic well being.
In addition to physical health and joyfulness, having energetic and enthusiastic outlook towards life determines the holistic well being.
So being in wellness is an ongoing process and requires continuous effort.
And this is possible only when we are trained in being Mindful!
Corporate and organizations should realize that having Mindful people will relieve them from the burden of chasing the numbers because Mindful people make numbers to follow!
