Meet Parneet Pal

This is a speaker for Wisdom in Business only.

“Are we going to settle with our own mindset, fight or flight response and have our personal health and our planet become just another statistic? Or are we going to choose differently? Are we going to upgrade our inner mind technology, so that we can transform our stress into well being?"

Parneet's workshop: Scaling Wisdom in Business

As business leaders, we are at a crucial inflection point in history. The future of work is unpredictable; rapid technological advances are contributing to a global cognition crisis; stress, anxiety, burnout and loneliness are epidemic; and the wellbeing of the planet lies in balance.

How can we best prepare to meet these conditions while also showing up as the wise leaders we wish to be - for our teams, stakeholders and clients?

The inner technology of mindfulness and compassion offers a practical and science-backed solution. Research shows that consistent practice produces changes in the brain and body that translate to better health, creativity, collaboration, emotional intelligence and decision making - all vital elements of wisdom in business. 

Through storytelling of the Wisdom Labs experience, a clear summary of the latest science, and guided practice, I will present wisdom as a scalable skill for leaders and organizations.
