    If the employees and leaders of your organization were happier and more productive, would your organization be more successful in aligning itself with its mission and in reaching its goals and objectives? 

    • What would happen if your organization started to offer a weekly 30-minute meditation session during regular business hours?
    • Do you think that this might result in a healthier, happier and more productive workforce with a reduced level of conflict?
    • Do you think that leaders would be better at understanding the organization, recognizing implicit bias, working with teams and managing change?

    Attend this interactive workshop and discover the answers to these questions. This workshop will increase the knowledge and ability of a SHRM or other certified professional to help develop the workforce and enhance leadership skills, manage change and other difficult situations, improve inter-personal relations and manage conflict within the organization.
