Message from Your Host - Mo Edjlali,  President, Mindful Leader

 
Mo.jpg

I'm incredibly excited and humbled to be your host for the Mindfulness at Work Summit. You might be wondering who is this guy and why is he doing this? To give you a little background, I spent the first part of my career working as an IT and Management consultant for Accenture and Fair Isaac, working with international clients in energy, banking, retail, government agencies, universities, startups, and F500 companies. I launched my own company, bootstrapped, grew it from 0 to 30 people, and created a multi-million dollar business in less than 3 years. I embraced a ruthless, aggressive, gangster style of leadership to drive the company and its financial goals forward. Simply put, I was an a-hole leader and caused a great deal of suffering to my staff, my vendors, and myself. Thankfully the company collapsed and caused me to take a hard look at what I had become and question what's REALLY important? I was incredibly fortunate to discover Mindfulness and over the last 9 years, I have committed myself to driving the advancement of Mindfulness & Compassion in the workplace. This Summit is the culmination of years of work and I'm happy to have you part of it.
