The stress-reducing, nonreligious Transcendental Meditation (TM) Technique provides the experience of “restful alertness,” which reduces stress, strengthens communication between the brain’s prefrontal cortex and different areas of the brain, and develops total brain functioning. As a result, the TM practitioner displays stronger executive functions, with more purposeful thinking and farsighted decision-making. When the CEO is fully “online,” the emotional response to the world is more balanced and appropriate.

Transcendental Meditation enhances:

Strong executive functioning
Tendency towards
* Purposeful, flexible thinking
* Nonimpulsive, proactive behavior
