IOSM is a non-profit membership association of human capital and operating leaders, educators, and coaches. Our programs include member research, education, information, communities, and a curriculum of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) that drive individual and organizational performance.

Why Now?

We’ve been sleepwalking into a mental health crisis for decades, as workplace stress, anxiety disorder, attention deficit, toxic management, interpersonal conflict, exhaustion, and burnout have steadily increased year-over-year. Today’s massive turnover and record disengagement, the highest levels of anxiety and depression on record, and productivity falling at the fastest rate since 1983, are signals of enormous distress in the workforce. It’s clearly time to adopt better strategies and different tools for turning this around. 

Why Mindfulness?

Neuroscience has determined that what we think about, and how we think about it, can physically change the brain - and that mindfulness is a series of mental and emotional skills that produce remarkably positive outcomes in human wellbeing, cognitive performance, and emotional intelligence. These outcomes, in turn, can be applied to develop more effective leaders, a healthier, higher-performing workforce, and a safer, more inclusive, and more productive workplace.

Our Members Are Saying

“Organizational Mindfulness breaks the huge topic of mindfulness (both personal and in organizations) into practical and actionable lessons and steps, with great coaching support and daily reminders to practice. The weekly classes are outstanding, and offer plenty of time for discussion as well as practice. I highly recommend this course both for beginners and those more experienced with mindfulness, especially those interested in integrating it into their workplace.”

"Organizational Mindfulness methodologies, as structured through the Institute of Organizational Science and Mindfulness, are helpful for advancing individual as well as organizational development. The science-anchored method of training in the practices presents a western approach to which many will gravitate and feel comfortable. The instructional team demonstrated depth of knowledge for the content, as well as exhibited both compassion for learners and passion for the subject.  I found the experience to be helpful as a curricular example.  Importantly, the Institute as a center for continued archiving and advancement of the approach will be of tremendous value going forward."

"Mindfulness is neither mysterious nor mystical, but rather can be reliably and validly measured, linked to an array of individual and organizational outcomes, and induced through meditative and non-meditative practices and processes, at the individual and collective levels”


Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt Universities, 2018
