Fifteen years of experience in sales and marketing for the spa, wellness, and hospitality industries positioned certified wellness coach and mindfulness training facilitator Stacy Conlon to know the ins and outs of the growing market of corporate wellness. With recent clients including Cisco and Samsung, Conlon steps up her offerings with the launch of www.thezengirl.com.
This website contains powerful stress-reduction solutions for both startups and established companies. The website further engages corporate leaders in utilizing meditation and mindfulness tools to foster employee happiness, creativity, focus, and retention.
According to Forbes.com 87 percent of employees surveyed consider health and wellness offerings when choosing an employer. “There is clearly a demand for mindfulness and meditation in corporate settings, so I launched this website in response to this growing need,” says Conlon. “My vision is to help establish a culture of mindfulness in workplaces around the world, boosting productivity and ultimately creating a happier and more mindful planet.”
Citing a company culture of mindfulness as being able to increase productivity, decrease absenteeism, reduce costs and turnover, and generate more revenue, Conlon works directly with brands to bring customized mindfulness and meditation programs into their workplace. Having led keynote presentations for notable groups including The Lean Startup, Conlon strategically leads The Zen Girl’s services by implementing programs over time so they can be fully absorbed into the client’s culture.
- The program includes three core offerings:
- Mindfulness sessions: Presented in the style of a TED Talk, these sessions are a good fit for leaders who want to kick off wellness programming or need a fundamental framework for mindfulness in their company.
- Guided Meditations: Delivered either live or recorded, Conlon leads guided meditations that are customized to a company’s unique goals and specific scenarios. “Hundreds of successful people form Oprah to Steve Jobs have reported having a meditation practice,” says Conlon. “And since many people find it hard to meditate on their own, guided meditation is a great solution because it offers structure and allows people to meditate more easily.”
- Wellness Coaching: Busting the myth that coaching takes a lot of time, participants in Conlon’s 20-minute express sessions walk away with at least one specific, tangible wellness strategy uniquely suited to the individual that can be implemented immediately.
