Does your business seek more success? If so, join the Lenz Foundation in collaboration with NYU’s Department of Global Spiritual Life/Stern School of Business at the groundbreaking Awakened Leadership: Mindfulness in Business and At Work conference, June 1-3, 2016 in Los Angeles on the Loyola Marymount campus near LAX.

In this two-and-a-half day conference, you will learn how to introduce mindfulness into your workplace and increase the bottom line. For over thirty years, research and clinical trials have conclusively proven the value of mindfulness in reducing stress and increasing well-being, with demonstrated improvements in:

  • Cognitive function and flexibility (concentration, memory and learning)
  • Emotional re-activity and ability to be self-aware and to self-manage
  • Productivity
  • Employer/employee and client relationships
  • Job satisfaction
  • Costs of staff absenteeism and turnover

Our speakers have decades of experience working within a broad range of businesses and organizations and include:

The Lenz Foundation envisions making collaboration grants to jump start social impact programs that grantees and business/community leaders might develop out of this work together. This conference will also devote a half day to improving our grantees’ own mindful best business practices.
