Daniel Goleman : Response to Gallup Employee Engagement Report

 

The Gallup Organization recently reported that only 30% of surveyed employees are engaged at work. That means companies aren’t getting their best out of people, and employees are not motivated to perform. They’re either bored or burned out.

Daniel Goleman argues that the remedy isn’t simply finding new managers to motivate teams, it’s about committing to continuous improvement for all employees throughout the organization. The good news is that we can continue to develop throughout life and given the direct correlation between a leader’s state and the team & organization’s state it makes a lot of sense to do so!

Mindfulness with Jon Kabat Zinn

 

Jon Kabat Zinn leads a session on Mindfulness at Google in which he says that our entire society is suffering from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) certifiably diagnosed.It all about doing and there is no recognition of being and so there is no place to rest (hence alarming growth in stress, depression etc…statistics where individuals are disconnected from themselves, each other and our whole planet). Unless our stone age mind engages in a little self education it can really wind up getting stuck in realms of confusion, suffering, being lost and maybe even impeding creativity, imagination, real thoughtfulness, leadership because we’re not running on all cylinders. Meditation is like tuning your instrument before you take it out on the road. Tuning it in the morning can make a huge difference on how the whole day goes… Cultivating Mindfulness or Awareness is all about saying, there is plenty of place and time to rest, because awareness is boundless and infinitely available in every moment no matter what you are doing…
