Creating a Mindful and Positive Workplace Culture
The growth and overall success of an organization are defined by its culture and leadership. A positive workplace culture enhances teamwork, collaboration, and morale. As a result, it boosts employee engagement, efficiency, and retention.
This presentation will address the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren’t driving the company down and where individuals are willing to put aside their own self-interest for the sake of the greater good.

Mindful Leadership: Walking the Talk and Developing Self-Awareness
Leaders set the tone for the rest of the organization. To fully inspire and bring out the best from the workforce, leadership has to lead by example and “walk the talk.” They can’t say one thing and do another. To attract, engage and retain top talent, leaders need to create more human and employee-centered workplace environments.
This talk will address the importance for the leadership of all levels to not only set the right example but also, on a regular basis, appreciate the contributions of their workforce, communicate mindfully to encourage and inspire, lead with humility and without ego and manage their emotions. The research on mindfulness and its application for the workplace will also be presented.

1. Improve their level of self-awareness
2. Communicate mindfully and with compassion
3. Lead with confidence combined with humility
4. Better manage their emotions to remain calm during challenging situations
5. Implement mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve focus and productivity
Stress Management for Work-Life Balance
Workplace stress is costing businesses over $300 billions of dollars and is leading to absenteeism, turnover and increased healthcare costs. Mindfulness is being employed by companies such as Google, General Mills, Aetna, Novartis, and many others because the research is showing it can reduce stress, anxiety, depression and can improve focus, productivity, and emotional intelligence. This talk will present scientific research on Mindfulness and how it can be used by companies to create a more positive work environment. Participants will also learn mindfulness breathing, focusing and visualization techniques that can be used at work and at home. The audience will also be guided through appreciation and gratitude meditations.
Additional Items essential to stress management and work-life balance that will be discussed are:
Keys to Unlocking and Unleashing the Power of Your Mind
The mind can become our best friend or our worst enemy. It controls our emotional and physical health and thus impacts all aspects of our social and professional interactions. The mind is the cause of our fears, insecurities, and anxieties. An undernourished mind magnifies the problems and challenges we encounter and leads us into negative thought processes. By strengthening the muscle of the mind and nourishing its needs, we can see the potential for growth during difficulties and setbacks and develop the self-confidence we need to accomplish our personal and career goals.
Pandit Dasa will share his journey from being a millionaire in Los Angeles to spending 15 years in monasteries, in New York and India, with little to no money or possessions. He will inspire us with eye-opening insights into the nature of the mind and how we can unlock the power of the mind to help us overcome many of life’s obstacles.
Mindfulness and Stress-Management for College-Life Balance
Managing schoolwork, relationships, career, and finances can turn into a real balancing act. It can lead to stress, anxiety, and even depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 30 percent of college students reported feeling “so depressed that it was difficult to function.” This workshop will present a variety of mindfulness and meditation practices that will help students deal with the challenges that come with college life. Harvard and MIT studies have revealed that meditation can improve one’s memory, focus, productivity and enable us to cope with challenging situations. Forbes states “Meditation Might Rival Medication.” The studies also show that it can reduce stress and anxiety. In this session, we will present the different research on the benefits of mindfulness and teach the breathing and focusing techniques that are recommended by the studies. These engaging practices can nourish the mind which will lead to improved health, greater productivity, and better relationships.
Mindful Approach to Teambuilding
Trust is a foundational principle for successful teams. When team members trust each other, they are not worried about an individual looking after his or her personal interests. There is a mutual appreciation and recognition of each other’s’ contributions. Each individual is inspired to give more for the team’s success. Honest and mindful communication helps create this atmosphere and allows everyone to stay informed with no one kept in the dark – office cliques and politics are not tolerated. Mindfulness practices can help team members empathize with each other and build strong bonds.
This presentation will explore how to strengthen trust within teams and will guide individuals through mindfulness practices that can improve cooperation and empathy.
Communicating with Compassion
How does it feel when you receive an email or text message that wasn’t very thoughtful or compassionate? Communicating with compassion can build trust and positive relationships while rushed or reactive communication can have a completely opposite impact. While working in teams, it is natural for disagreements and conflicts to arise and these are the times when it’s crucial to be able to manage our emotions so we don’t act out of anger and frustration. This workshop will discuss the four keys to thoughtful and productive communication. It will help us to understand the value of learning to listen with an open mind and demonstrate how mindfulness practices can build our emotional intelligence which will help us sympathize with another’s perspective.
