Going Back to the Breath: Integrating Meditation and Mindfulness With Business Leadership

Source | | Rob Dube

It’s an interesting dynamic to find a deep connection while sitting in complete silence with a complete stranger, but that’s exactly how my relationship with this week’s donothing podcast guest, Janet Solyntjes, began.

While attending my first extended silent retreat as a student, few—if any—words were actually exchanged between Janet and myself. Despite that communication hurdle, I instantly knew my mindset as a business owner would be altered after a week with her. Possessing unmatched insight, serious wit, and a compassionate spirit, Janet has the innate ability to click with anyone from dedicated health professionals to skeptical CEOs.  

More than a mindfulness virtuoso, Janet fully understands today’s complex society in ways few others do. Unpretentious and fully grounded in reality, her wisdom is perfect for business leaders seeking a stronger connection to themselves and their employees. During our most stressful moments, if we can’t snap our fingers and transport ourselves to a tranquil safe space, how do we instead find it mentally?

Since that first introduction, I’m happy to say Janet has become a friend and colleague as well as a teacher. Thanks to five years of attending these retreats, I’ve grown immensely as a leader and promote her programs to anyone that’ll listen. She’s improved my life and broadened my understanding of the world both personally and professionally.
