Mindfulness to Work
Join the Movement
Let’s clear away the toxic stress in the workplace, and give our people the mental strength, cognitive performance, social and emotional intelligence to thrive.
Mindfulness is a neural process that produces a state of calm, alert awareness and strengthens brain circuits associated with attentional, emotional and behavioral control. These outcomes can be transformational for our wellbeing, cognitive performance, emotional intelligence, and other relationship and work-based competencies.
Toxicity in the Workplace
The NIH have determined that chronic stress is the single greatest contributor to the principal causes of premature death, and that its primary source is the workplace - where we've experienced decades of year-over-year increases in information overload, attention deficit trait, digital addiction, unconscious bias, interpersonal conflict, exhaustion and burnout.
IOM is a non-profit association of scientists, educators, human capital and operating professionals, with a shared mission to bring mindfulness neural training into the mainstream — to develop more effective leaders, a healthier, happier, higher performing workforce, and a safer, more inclusive, more productive workplace.
