"Move from Surviving to Thriving in the Workplace: Unlocking Powerful Tools and Techniques"

 Program Description: 

Founded in 1981, the Art of Living Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian organization working in consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council on initiatives related to health, meditation, education, sustainable development, conflict resolution and disaster relief through a wide range of social upliftment, cultural and spiritual activities. The Foundation has reached out to millions of people from all walks of life in 155 countries and is dedicated to serving society by strengthening the individual. The self-development programs offer techniques that eliminate stress, calm the mind, improve health, expand awareness, resolve conflict and encourage people from all backgrounds, religions and cultures to come together in celebration and service.

These effective techniques have been taught to nearly 30, 000 employees in over 200 client organizations including Google, IBM, NASA, the World Bank and the European Parliament.  In an increasingly complex and dynamic world, solving problems through strategy and process alone can leave employees burnt out and disengaged, fragment teams, and create negative workplace cultures. To develop resilient teams and adaptive solutions, employees need tools to understand and manage their most important asset — their own minds. Successful teams and leaders require mental clarity to process an ongoing flood of information, adaptive thinking to navigate unforeseen challenges, emotional resilience to process stress and uncertainty, and social connection for greater engagement and teamwork. When employees are engaged and thriving, they are more likely to maintain strong work performance — even during difficult times.

Come enjoy a taste of the 3-day Happiness Program and experience a few of the tools and techniques that have empowered millions to move from surviving to thriving in both the workplace and at home.
