Join us for this practical workshop where you will explore the neuroscience behind mindfulness and self-management to: Learn about your brain’s operating system. Understand how women’s and men’s brains are different. Experiment with simple techniques to gain greater awareness of limiting thoughts, emotions and behaviours to overcome roadblocks that stand in your way. Understand how to rewire your brain. Experience a hands-on mindfulness practice to start embodying new beliefs and behaviours to drive performance at work, at home, and at play.

The Economics of Mutuality - Transforming Performance for People, Planet and Profit

Monday, 27 Aug, 2018 16:30 - 19:00
GIC, 168 Robinson Road, Level 38, Singapore 068912

MIT Club of Singapore and Mars Catalyst invite you to a presentation of the Economics of Mutuality and of the book ‘Completing Capitalism’ by their authors. The Economics of Mutuality is a breakthrough management innovation and a new growth model that empowers business to adopt a responsible form of capitalism, that is fairer and more efficient than the purely financial one dominating business practice today. The Economics of Mutuality is the outcome of a pioneering research initiated in 2007 by Mars Incorporated, in partnership with the Said Business School of Oxford university.

Cost: Free of charge

Founded on new performance metrics, innovative management practices and new modes of profit constructions, the results of the Economics of Mutuality in actual live businesses are highly promising: if the business invests according to a non-financial prism, measured by non-financial homogeneous indicators in its social and environmental ecosystems, the value created for all stakeholders is not only superior to the current profit maximization approach favoring shareholders, but the financial performance is also greater. And even in the short term. The Economics of Mutuality approach is described by Mars Chief Economist Bruno Roche and his colleague Jay Jakub in their book, ‘Completing Capitalism’,
