RE: How you can deliver the benefits of meditation to your employees QUICKLY
The Results are Clear:
Meditation Training in the Workplace provides tangible benefits including:
A ripple effect of benefits to your bottom line.
Unless you fail to get employee buy-in.
Without getting your employees excited about signing up and engaged to keep going, your completion rate drops, learning is not implemented, you don’t get results, and your investment is wasted.
So the question becomes:
Given that most people these days know that meditation is “good for you,” what stops employees from engaging fully in corporate meditation training?
Top 5 Reasons Why ‘Traditional’ Meditation Programs
Fail to Get Employee Buy-In
Reason #1: Employees believe they don’t have time.
Many meditation training programs require employees to practice at least fifteen minutes a day, but these days, that’s a lot of time. Because of this, your employees, not able to imagine finding that much time in their already crowded schedules, simply won’t try these programs or won’t be able to keep practicing.
Reason #2: Employees worry that they can’t sustain a meditative state.
Ironically, for many people, the length of time required by most meditation programs induces anxiety. On top of this, with longer practice periods, many people become hyper-aware of their failings (invading thoughts and an inability to focus), rather than becoming aware of their moments of success.
Reason #3: Employees have unreasonably high expectations.
Many people think that meditation means achieving ‘perfect peace’ or ‘nirvana’–a complete personal transformation. But this mental frame can cause a negative spiral, resulting in a feeling of failure–goals aren’t met and employees no longer want to meditate. Why? Research shows that training works best if people create new habits in small, incremental ways. And our research shows that learning meditation works better when you realize that you can simply choose to put yourself in a more beneficial state of mind right now.
Reason #4: Employees believe they need to find a perfect place in which to meditate.
Most media images of meditation show people meditating in places that are perfectly serene and beautiful—places that look nothing like our daily lives. This causes many people to believe that they need to find somewhere peaceful in order to meditate. They don’t realize they can meditate in a stressful time or stressful place—when they need it most.
Reason #5: Employees don’t resonate with the typical meditation ‘lingo’
Let’s face it. Not everyone wants to sit cross-legged on the floor, chant a mantra, or burn flowery incense. And many meditation programs and teachers fail to reach exactly those people who need the most help, simply because they have not adapted their traditional practices to modern life or adapted their language to be inclusive of the true diversity of belief systems in a modern workplace.
One-Moment Meditation helps people break through these barriers by:
Most of all, One-Moment Meditation leverages
the enormous power of just one moment of focused attention
to effect change.
For example …
No time? No problem.
One-Moment Meditation takes just one minute a day–or less.
One-Moment Meditation is easily integrated into gaps in the busiest of days–allowing for no-excuse implementation and high completion rates. Even the busiest person has a minute.
Better still, it encourages employees to meditate not in some faraway time or place but right when and where they need it most. They can grab a moment whenever they need to focus their attention or prepare for an important meeting, or whenever they feel overwhelmed by stress.
In developing One-Moment Meditation, Martin Boroson distilled meditation to its core, knowing that most people won’t even TRY something they believe takes a long time. This is why so many people find One-Moment Meditation immediately attractive. Indeed, the most common response we get from employees when they first hear about One-Moment Meditation is: “I can do that!”
Your employees learn that they can “re-tune” their state of mind and get on top of mental stress and emotional turmoil quickly. Your employees thank you for making this truly life-changing skill available to them.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. If I’m not sure if my company is ready to make a major commitment to meditation training at work, how can I introduce it?
Not every company is ready to make a 100% commitment to promoting mindfulness for their staff (even if they know a happier, productive staff increases innovation and profit). So, what’s the best way to get started? We’ll work with you to generate measurable results with a small pilot group. We know that when the results speak for themselves, you get faster buy-in.
2. What formats are available for training?
We deliver OMM in a variety of formats, each designed to exceed expectations while matching your budget, aligning with your strategic commitments, and delivering measurable results.
When you contact us, we will work with you to find the right form of OMM training for your needs and to ensure that the habits created through OMM become embedded in your workforce culture—because the greater your employee buy-in, the higher your completion rate, and the more noticeable your results.

Online Courses: “Meeting the Moment™”
These online training courses are our premium training product, but can still be scaled to your level of commitment. All courses give employees a short downloadable lesson each week (which they can listen to offline on their mp3 players—giving them a needed break from their computers), plus daily reminders by email offering one key meditation concept or tip. “Homework” takes just one minute a day.
Our online courses in One-Moment Meditation can be offered to a small group of employees or customized to become a unique product for your company. Customization options include a dedicated server, employee interaction, gamification, co-branding, and administration of the Perceived Stress Scale.
