THE MINDFUL WORKPLACE

Michael Chaskalson, who is a mindfulness and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) trainer based in the United Kingdom, has written a wonderful book entitled The Mindful Workplace.

Chaskalson, who is one of the world's foremost proponents of the use of mindfulness in workplace settings, offers a practical and theoretical guide to the benefits of MBSR in the workplace. He describes the latest neuroscience research into the effects of mindfulness training and details an eight-week mindfulness training course.

Chaskalson makes the point---and also provides evidentiary material to support his view---that business success and other ‘economic imperatives’ are not only not inconsistent with human wellbeing, they are totally consistent, even synergistically interrelated. I only wish more entrepreneurs were of that mindset. Too many of them are concerned only with the so-called ‘bottom line,’ failing to realise that their bottom line would significantly improve if they wisely invested in the human wellbeing of their employees.
