ence, and focus - the drishti. Its having the strength to pull back in order to go deeper - if that makes sense. One of the most amazing things I see in yoga is the shift that happens when a group comes together to practice. No matter if people know each other or not, or if there is 10 people or 90. At the beginning of the class its traditional to chant aum, or om - which is the universal sound and I believe the first sound of the universe. Harmony is usually a bit mixed and off at the beginning of practice. But, at the close of practice, usually about 90 minutes, and the group chants aum again, the harmony is totally in sync and beautiful. Imagine if we could get that type of harmony, alignment and balance into our work environments. The other amazing aspect of yoga is learning to hold versus run from things that feel uncomfortable. As you observe yourself in postures that are less than comfortable at times you can either breathe into it and be patient or run. As you further this aspect of the practice is flows over into other aspects of life, especially business.
I would like to explore Aikido more and will now add it to my list to get to.
There's also some work/study that was recently done on compassion training at Ameriprise. The results - revenue went up, stress went down and people felt more connected to the world as a whole - pretty amazing stuff!
btw - the type of yoga I practice is power vinyassa and great for type a's who thrive on cardio and fast movement. There is a slowness to it as well in holding postures but overall much more dynamic than other types of yoga.…

I encourage you to take five minutes and watch this video - not only will your day be better but your outlook will change. I was moved, not only by the song but also by the shared talent of both the musical artists and the technicians that pieced this beautiful montage together.

rs working together to fill independent contributor to director-level. While I haven't recruited at the Executive Level (I'm assuming that means Executive VP to C-level), I know those searches are time consuming, a long process and very different recruiting at the independent contributor to director-level.
With that said, I think you're right about working directly with the high level executives for an executive search. This blog entry was not directed at executive search, but lower level contributors and managers. Since that was the aim of my post, and I should have clarified that, I still stand by my assertions that agencies and HR can work together in harmony if we're all nice and respectful.
P.s. I'm not familiar with the phrase, "real bunch of Jams." What does that mean? …
