The Institute for Organizational Mindfulness (IOM) is a non-profit membership association of human capital, talent, learning and leadership development executives, along with experts in neuroscience, psychology, wellness and wisdom practices.
Our shared mission is to bring mindfulness into the mainstream of business, education and healthcare
— to develop more effective leaders, and to create a healthier, higher performing, and more productive workforce.
Why Mindfulness Matters
“At the heart of our most intractable business challenges, we find people problems: chronic stress and burnout, distraction, interpersonal conflict, miscommunication, poor decision-making, and more.
Managers waste massive amounts of money, time, energy, and resources trying to fix these challenges, but the true costs are much greater, and much more troubling.”
— Menon, Thompson, 2016
