MEILAC is a work/life balance program and a mindfulness-based emotional intelligence solution for businesses, organizations and governments designed to create greater employee well-being and happiness, more empathetic leadership, peak performance and work satisfaction.

The program is designed specifically for leaders, professionals, business executives, public officials and leading academics.

The rationale behind this program is the compelling neurological and behavioral research findings pointing to the benefits of the cultivation of mindful awareness practices and emotional intelligence for business performance, health and well-being in responding to stress and the demands of 21st century economy, interpersonal relationships, and effective leadership. Fortune 500 companies like Google, Starbucks, SAP, Royal Bank of Canada and others continue to invest in organizational mindfulness and emotional intelligence programs.

MEILAC draws from the evidence-based Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, which was the basis of the UK Mindfulness Initiative recently adopted by the British Parliament to improve the lives of workers and first responders, and enhance the services provided across public health, criminal justice and education sectors.

MEILAC also incorporates the five components of emotional intelligence at work as defined by Emotional Intelligence author Daniel Goleman, and taught in organizational programs worldwide - Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, Internal Motivation, Empathy, and Social Skills

Participants from over 12 countries have participated in our MEILAC workshops and trainings in Latin America and the Caribbean. To learn more about how you can participate or support this initiative, please email us at knellee@ahameducation.org
