Mindful Workplace Summit at 1440 Multiversity


Create a Mindful Workplace that Benefits Employees. . .
and Your Organization’s Bottom Line

There’s been a shift happening in the workplace lately. More and more employees want to feel a sense of purpose in what they do, and a real connection to the organization’s mission. They’re often not satisfied remaining at an organization where they don’t.

Technological distractions and dissatisfaction at work are leading to alarming levels of employee disengagement. Only 33% of U.S. workers are now actively engaged at work, according to a comprehensive 2016 Gallup study. A full 67% of workers said they are either not engaged or are actively disengaged.

This is having real consequences for organizations - both with employee productivity and retention, and with organizations' bottom lines.

Here’s What’s Possible for Your Organization

According to The Gallup Organization, "Companies everywhere have opportunities for greater productivity -- and are leaving money on the table. Gallup's latest meta-analysis shows that compared to business units in the bottom quartile, business units in the top quartile of employee engagement:

  • Are 21% more profitable
  • Are 17% more productive
  • Have 10% better customer ratings
  • Experience 41% less absenteeism
  • Suffer 70% fewer safety incidents"

People-centered organizations are solving these issues by putting people first. They’re putting the responsibility for engagement and meaning on the organization, not the employee.

Creating a People-Centered Strategy . . .

Creating a People Centered Strategy.png

“An overarching belief in caring for every human being in your organization is a powerful shift in values with a direct, positive impact on the organization’s culture.

“Recognizing that people must be at the center of corporate strategy is not just about being kind and good - it enables true engagement and thereby high performance. To do otherwise is a recipe for disengagement, dissatisfaction, and, ultimately, sub-optimal performance.”

- From Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter’s new book, The Mind of the Leader, being published by Harvard Business Review Press in March 2018

The Mind of the Leader: Learn to be a More Mindful and Compassionate Leader

Jacqueline Carter and Rasmus Hougaard

Jacqueline Carter

Jacqueline Carter

Rasmus Hougaard

Rasmus Hougaard

Through two years of research, Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter have identified two of the most important traits of some of today’s greatest leaders at companies like McKinsey, Microsoft, Lego and Google: mindfulness and compassion. In this workshop they will teach you the science and practices of developing mindfulness and compassion and how to apply them in your leadership.

They draw on their own personal experiences training leaders around the world for the Potential Project, as well as research conducted for their book, The Mind of the Leader, being published in March 2018 by Harvard Business Review Press.

Rasmus is Managing Director and Founder of The Potential Project. Jacqueline is North American Director of the Potential Project.

Intensive 2

Finding the Space to Lead

John Cregier

John Cregier

John Cregier

Each of us has the potential to lead with excellence. But it’s hard to reach our potential for excellence when demands for our attention can feel overwhelming, and the frenetic pace of work causes us to function on autopilot much of the time. We lose our ability to respond with clarity, creativity and compassion.

This daylong intensive offers you the opportunity to explore and learn how to cultivate the innate abilities of your mind, and approach everyday situations with greater focus and ease. Founded on over a decade of work and research by Janice Marturano and the Institute for Mindful Leadership, this training has been successfully used by leaders and organizations worldwide. It is based in part on Janice's award winning book, Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership.

John is a Senior Leader at the Institute for Mindful Leadership, and former Vice President of Information Technology at U.S. Cellular.

Develop practical skills and tools to engage with leadership in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Perhaps surprisingly, meeting the challenges of leadership allows us to develop skills to connect more deeply with ourselves and others.

Learn more about how mindfulness helps you develop resilience, and how connecting deeply with yourself and others is the foundation for leading with authenticity.

Chuck is President of Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Bill is the former Superintendent of Well-Being at Google.

Intensive 1

Mindful at Work: Cultivating a Culture of Resilience

Susan Skjei

Susan Skjei

Susan Skjei

Every workplace needs people who are present, attentive, motivated and engaged.  This is the potential of mindfulness.  Based on simple practices that help focus and expand mental and emotional capacity, mindfulness can strengthen resilience, reduce stress and improve decision making in the workplace and in life.

In this workshop you will learn why mindfulness works and how you can apply it to everyday aspects of work such as planning, communication, meetings, teamwork and change. You will also learn mindfulness and embodiment practices that you can do at home to strengthen your capacity to stay present, focused and engaged.

Whether you are a leader or an individual contributor, mindfulness can strengthen your capacity to respond to challenges with creativity and even a sense of humor.  These practices can cultivate a culture of resilience in the face of constant change which gives work new meaning and purpose.

Susan is Director of the Authentic Leadership Center at Naropa University.
