Video from The Huffington Post, January 21, 2015

Professor Bill George of Harvard Business School spoke with HuffPost Live at Davos on Wednesday about mindfulness.

“There’s a lot of interest right now in being a more mindful leader,” George said, saying people want to “get out of this 24/7 stress-based world we’re in.”

George touted how some major companies like Google and General Mills are “really getting on board” and training employees in mindfulness practices.

George said the focus Google has on mindfulness is helping people realized the energizing benefits of practices like meditation, which he said he personally benefits from.

“I’m more energized after meditation, far more,” George said, calling it the “best antidote to jet lag.”
