About-

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.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In a business environment in which our ability to break through to new ways of thinking is not only required, it’s essential for survival, Nakai and Schultz have provided the link to understanding how our thinking is directly related to our healthy and sustained organizational growth. After reading these ideas, you may never think the same way again. . . . And that’s probably the best present you could give yourself.”

—Don A. Winkler, Chairman and CEO, Motor Credit Corporation



“The current buzz about ‘the war for talent’ has led to a lot of talk about people—and yet most organizations continue to treat people as commodities or as units of capacity. The Mindful Corporation argues for an alternative way of leading organizations and business endeavors: one that puts humanity and health at the center of the equation.”

—Mark Nevins, VP Human Resources and Professional Development, Korn/Ferry International



“Business leaders in today’s fast-paced, fast-changing economy are desperately seeking ways to have their people be more creative, more productive, and have them stay for more than a few months. The people, meanwhile, are seeking greater satisfaction in their work, greater fulfillment in themselves. In The Mindful Corporation, Nakai and Schultz explore a shift in mindset that gets everyone where they want to be. A thoughtful, provocative, and elegantly-written book, The Mindful Corporation is a gift for businesspeople who want to succeed in the twenty-first century, provided they have the courage to open their minds.”

—Roger Lewin and Birute Regine, authors of The Soul at Work: Embracing Complexity Science for Business Success



The Mindful Corporation unlocks the power of organizational awareness, and in doing so, opens up the limitless possibilities before us. Business has rarely explored the nature of its dynamic spirit. But what becomes evident in the pages of this book is how vital that investigation is to the healthy success and prosperity of our corporations. This should be required reading for every leader ever overloaded by the complexity of his or her job.”

—John Ruch, CEO, Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Utah, Regence BlueShield of Idaho



“In an era of information overload, The Mindful Corporation offers clarity, composure, and purpose to the overwhelmed and confused manager. Only to the prepared can serendipity happen. The Mindful Corporation provides the path to such preparedness.”

—Michael Lissack, Director, the Institute for the Study of Coherence and Emergence



“While the quick fix may provide a Band-Aid to cover our deeper wounds, The Mindful Corporation offers a remedy that can actually heal what ails our organizations. It is a powerful and simple approach for renewing our business and personal health that will allow us to create a better and more prosperous business world.”

—Steven Douglass, Former Chairman and CEO, Payless ShoeSource
