It was an honour for OWBA to be invited by McKinsey & Company to address a number of their staff at a training session in Moscow. Dana facilitated a mindfulness workshop for over 50 business researchers and consultants from 7-8 offices around the world. We began with a conversation about the mindless autopilot so many of us live in. We then turned to focus on how we might combat this by becoming more present with our thoughts, feelings and sensations. The group practised meditation, mindful eating and mindful listening. We loved receiving positive feedback both from the consultants and conference organisers!
McKinsey’s international and continuous mindfulness initiatives are something that is seldom seen in the corporate world. It was heartwarming for us to see this up close and a privilege to be a partner in this meaningful mission. McKinsey – it was a pleasure, we look forward to working alongside you in the near future!
