“What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” -Henry David Thoreau
On April 19th, 2017, we gathered over 150 founders and HR executives for a discussion on how we can build conscious leaders and mindful workplaces. This was the second event in our #ScoutingTalent event series. Our goals with this event were to elevate the importance of mindfulness in the workplace and to provide our audience with tactical ideas to bring back to their organizations.

We were joined by a panel of inspiring executives whose experiences range from high growth startups to the Fortune 500 including: Kathryn Friedrich, Chief Marketing Officer, Thrive Global; Katelin Holloway, VP of People & Culture, Reddit; Lilly Wyttenbach, Executive Director, Global Wellness Manager, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Nichol Bradford, CEO & Founder, Willow Group. Our panelists shared their candid experiences, war stories, recommendations and tactical tips for an audience that hails from the largest and fastest growing companies in the New York City area.
Our panel began with a “pattern interrupt” breathing exercise led by Nichol Bradford to help us experience the benefits of just a few moments of mindful breathing.
For those who were unable to join here is a video of the panel as well as the Q&A.
When asked what were their favorite tools, books and apps, the panel highlighted the following: Headspace, Focus@Will and Thrive.
