Overview

• How to create a successful and harmonious business environment by bringing Buddhist principles to the workplace.

• Practical, time-tested methods that help transform your business environment into a productive and peaceful workplace.

• Includes a series of mental and physical exercises designed to help people cope with challenges they face when working in groups, offices, or industry.

The goal of management in most businesses, large or small, is to get people to work together successfully and harmoniously. This practical manual shows how Buddhist principles can be used to transform the workplace into a supportive, productive environment in which people are capable of maximizing their own potential. Using the ancient Tibetan text The Seven Points of Mind Training as its base, Enlightened Management shows how these time-tested methods can be used in a modern business environment with stunning success.

By applying Buddhist principles to the workplace the authors provide new insights into the true meaning of responsibility and the importance of focus. They teach how to relax under pressure and control emotions, and provide tips on constructive conflict resolution and understanding personal limits. More than just a book on achieving success, Enlightened Management is about creating happiness for all involved, employer as well as employee.

Packed with exercises and techniques tailored for today's workplace, Enlightened Management shows how to draw the best out of ourselves and our colleagues to create the productive, balanced, and happy office environment in which everyone dreams of working.
