Creating a mindful and positive workplace culture

The growth and overall success of an organization is defined by its culture and leadership. A positive workplace culture enhances teamwork, collaboration and morale. As a result it boosts employee engagement, efficiency and retention.

This presentation will address the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren’t driving the company down and where individuals are willing to put aside their own self-interest for the sake of the greater good. It encourages an environment where individuals are willing to appreciate the contributions of their co-workers instead of feeling threatened by them. The research on mindfulness and its application for the workplace will also be presented.

As a result of this keynote, the audience will be able to:

  1. Communicate with awareness, clarity and compassion
  2. Manage their emotions to handle conflicts

Mindful leadership: Walking the talk

Leaders set the tone and mood for the rest of the organization. To fully inspire and bring out the best from the workforce, leadership has to lead by example and “walk the talk.” They can’t say one thing and do another. To attract, engage and retain top talent, leaders need to create more human and employee-centered workplace environments.

This talk will address the importance for leadership of all levels to not only set the right example, but also, on a regular basis, appreciate the contributions of their workforce, communicate mindfully to encourage and inspire, lead with humility and without ego and manage their emotions. The research on mindfulness and its application for the workplace will also be presented.

After this keynote, participants will be able to:

  1. Improve their level of self-awareness
  2. Communicate mindfully and with compassion
  3. Lead with confidence combined with humility
  4. Better manage their emotions to remain calm during challenging situations
  5. Implement mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve focus and productivity

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Pandit Dasa was a refreshing change in pace at The World Bank Group’s HR conference. He addressed the HR community and gave a practical talk on “Becoming the Change You Wish to See” where he encouraged the audience to reflect on their motivations for leading, to communicate with compassion and appreciate and celebrate each others’ success. The consensus was that Pandit’s message could benefit the other divisions within The World Bank Group. We were thrilled to partner with him for a second time and look forward to introducing him and his message to the broader World Bank community in the future.
