Hard drives are packed, file cabinets are filled, and office floors are piled with the pending and pressing. There are decisions to be made about launching new products and services, projections and directions to be planned, operations opened, facilities closed, compensation packages negotiated, mergers discussed, acquisitions incorporated, and then there's lunch. Running a corporation is often a matter of details and deadlines. But how does anyone bring a semblance of pattern to this complex clutter? The answer is actually a quiet one. It begins with a mental shift from a mind-filled perspective to that of one that is mindful--spacious--receptive--ready to address that which it encounters without the crammed overload that too much, too many, and too fast often causes.
The Mindful Corporation provides a course of direction toward operating more conscious organizations. This requires us to understand the nature of our thinking, not its content, but the mere fact that we think, and how that thinking impacts everything we encounter. We will also look at how our insights can expand and sometimes limit our decisions. What we have found in organizations already on the path to mindfulness is that as we become more aware, more mindful, more connected to our own resiliency and flexibility, we also become more adaptable, adept, and agile in operating within today's complex environments, the outcome of which is a more productive and successful organization.
