On 11 January 2006 India Times reported:
A study of stress in the workplace highlighted research on the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Technique on corporate managers. Conducted by the University of Stockholm's Department of Business Administration, the study found that managers who practised TM displayed increased energy and alertness, more holistic thinking, and better decision-making capabilities.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of business.
The study, conducted in 1990, followed two teams of top business managers. They examined the short-term effects on both teams over a course of four to seven months, and also continued to observe the long-term effects on one team for two to three years.
According to the article, the study found that the increased focus, clarity, and energy of those practising the Transcendental Meditation Technique affected the entire management team, even those not practising the technique. The group as a whole became more dynamic, able to take on greater demands and rise to new levels of leadership.
They also found improved relations among members of the management teams. These improvements in the quality of relationships extended outside the workplace and benefited family relations as well.
The article reported that: 'Corporate stress management is a key issue these days. NASA, IBM, Nokia, Stanford, or the US Army abroad or Infosys, Wipro, and most of the big companies in India are providing corporate stress management training through meditation and other means to keep the managers and other employees productive, to help them become successful leaders, and attain self-mastery, focus, and ability to work effectively with others.'
Mentioning other techniques of meditation and concentration, and intellectual pursuits for self-improvement, the article emphasized the importance of balance, and illustrated this value with quotes from the Vedic Literature.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
