Three decades of research and over 6,000 journaled studies across neuroscience, psychology and medicine have proven the remarkably positive physical and emotional benefits of mindfulness.
Yet to date, less than 3% of research has been directed towards the practical application of those outcomes in organizations, or in society more broadly.
IOM Research is aimed at that gap — Our mission is to direct science-based mindfulness to improve critical skills and competencies, change mindsets and behaviors, increase performance and productivity — and solve our most intractable human capital business problems
Join an IOM Workgroup to help surface thought leadership in how mindfulness is applied to specific business functions (HR, L/D, Sales, etc) and Industries (Hospitality, Healthcare, etc)
As a workgroup member, you'll join a rapidly growing and active community within IOM while simultaneously advancing your own career with support from our professional community.

Help us understand the organizational challenges, the various stages of adoption, the impact on individual and team performance, and the best practices in Mindful Leadership to date.
Why Mindfulness Matters
"The reason for surging interest in mindfulness is simple and compelling — mindfulness appears to have broadly positive impacts on human functioning.
We may one day think of mindfulness as a root construct in organizational science, as it appears to shape human experience in a wide variety of functional domains, including thought, emotion, and action.”
— Good, Liddy, Glomb, Journal of Management 2016
