At the IE Group, we practise a variety of meditation techniques from Primordial Sound Meditation, TM, Zen, open-eye meditation, guided meditations by Deepak Chopra and Davidji as well as open-eye and mindfulness meditation techniques.
An effective meditation technique needs to be simple, comfortable and produce the results that make you want to make it part of your daily experience. The key is consistency – making time every day to be quiet, breathe and connect with the self.
What are the benefits of meditating?
Studies prove meditating leads to higher work efficiency, reduction in stress and greater health benefits.
Many successful leaders around the world including Oprah Winfrey and Ray Dalio CEO of the world’s largest hedge fund are sponsoring employees and or participating in 40 minutes of meditation a day. Why? Because Meditation produces big benefits! Today meditation is regarded as the ultimate workout leading to a higher work rate efficiency, reduction in stress and numerous health benefits.
Why a stressed out mind can’t function
We all know about the flight or fight response. When we are stressed, our prefrontal cortex stops working to direct energy to vital parts of the body to “fight or run away” This was essential for our survival in pre-historic days. Unfortunately, our neural circuitry of fear has not evolved in the modern brain and our primitive response to threats can immobilize our thinking or executive brain.
Studying the effect of meditation at work
Meditation practice has been scientifically proven to reduce the intensity and duration of the flight or fight syndrome described above. One significant study, for instance, looked at the effect of Meditation practice on employees of both a large manufacturing plant of a Fortune 100 corporation, and a small distribution sales company. In both settings, after 3 months regular meditators had improved significantly on measures of:
-professional and personal relationships;
-physiological calmness and stability during mental task performance (measured by skin conductance levels);
-status of general health.
Regular meditators also reported decreased:
-insomnia and fatigue;
-cigarette and alcohol use.
Employees who practiced Meditation scored significantly higher on Leadership Practice Inventory than controls. Leadership Practice Inventory measures important elements of leadership thinking like
-Greater work effectiveness;
-Increased energy for activities at work and home;
-greater comfort taking initiative and increased calmness in stressful situations.
And a recent study with a Volvo managerial team in Sweden also suggested that the psychological changes accompanying meditation practice could enhance decision-making skills while also improving the ability to find creative solutions to complex problems.
Meditation has real health benefits
Meditation is not a reclusive activity leading to complete withdrawal from the ’marketplace of life’. Quite the opposite in fact. To anyone even slightly informed about the effects of meditation, the question posed above would be little more than rhetorical. It has been shown in rigorous scientific research that Meditation reduces physical and emotional stress, sharpens creativity and increases cognitive skills. Both human relations and decision making flourish.
Meditation leads to greater calmness, clarity of vision and innate wisdom — the true basis of success
