What is the People’s Stage?
Every year, many Wisdom 2.0 participants ask how they can share their great work, insights, and presentations with our community. We are happy to announce the return of The People’s Stage to our 2017 annual conference.
The People’s Stage is a series of interactive breakout sessions submitted by registered conference attendees and selected by popular community vote. The People’s Stage has space for 130 participants, as it is designed for more intimate, interactive sessions. Sessions are about 18 minutes long.

Title: Mindfulness and Creativity in the Workplace: How to Build Cultures of Innovation
Description: At a fundamental level, both mindfulness and creativity share this in common: They are tried and true paths for fulfilling your three core human needs: connection, making a difference, and meaning. Furthermore, when mindfulness and creativity are combined, they catalyze one another and begin to permeate all aspects of your personal and professional lives.
In the workplace, mindfulness has been attributed to better focus, productivity, and general wellbeing. Creativity is the source of new and useful products, services, even ways of being. No matter you do for a living, when you couple mindfulness and creativity as practices, you actively build enlivening ecosystems of innovation.
In this session, we’ll explore the links between mindfulness, creativity, and our core human needs, as well as how we can actively build cultures of innovation through simple, tried and true means of bringing out the best in all those around us.
