Globally recognised, mindfulness has been practiced at Google and many other organisations.

Richard Fernandez, Director of Executive Development at Google , says he sees a significant difference in his work behavior since taking the [mindfulness] course.

“I’m definitely much more resilient as a leader,” he says. “I listen more carefully and with less reactivity in high-stakes meetings. It’s almost an emotional and mental bank account. I’ve now got much more of a buffer there.”   New York Times
