I wanted to send you a note to express how proud I am of Goldman Sachs for having the wisdom and foresight to roll-out Mindfulness training for our people. Given our hard-charging and type A culture, I’m sure many people pushed back in the belief that this was some kind of soft or “touchy-feely” training.
Quite the opposite, these skills will lead to more commercial outcomes for the Firm. I’m convinced (and know through experience) that mindfulness leads to greater productivity, more efficiency, better decisions, higher retention and better relationships. Well done!
