Overview

Project Bloom is a book about a group of meditators who had an opportunity to talk to Sadhguru about changing the business culture in our companies.   Sadhguru shared his views on leadership,  employee development,  finding the right career, and advice on starting your own business.  The book shows the dramatic impact meditation can have on a business person,  as well as how it can impact an entire business. The author took Sadhguru’s advice and applied it in a Fortune 500 company and created an innovative program that focuses on employee recognition, appreciation, and development called Project Bloom.

Description

Can meditation play a role in business? Can it be the secret to maintaining a proper work-life balance in today’s competitive marketplace? Can you find happiness at work regardless of what kind of work you do? This is the story of how a Fortune 500 human resources department transformed the lives of its employees by applying Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s ideas on leadership, engagement, career development, and meditation in business through a unique program called Project Bloom. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi from India, who not only teaches meditation to business leaders all across the world, but also runs a humanitarian relief operation in India that provides free medical care, schools for disadvantaged children, and conducts massive volunteer tree-planting efforts. Project Bloom provides a model for how employees can influence a business’ culture to make it become the kind of place where everyone enjoys working. Each individual can transform his or her own work-life to live a happier, healthier, and more balanced life by using a science and technology that has been made use of for thousands of years, especially in the eastern parts of the world. By transforming yourself, a seed is planted that blooms within you.
