Hello! Tawnshi! 

Welcome to The Mindful Managers a space that is devoted to workplace spirituality, increasing employee well-being and decolonizing business. Mindful Managers was created as a result of completing my masters degree in leadership with my research focused on workplace spirituality. As part of reclaiming my Metis heritage I conducted my research in collaboration with the Raven Institute led by two incredible Metis leaders. 

In part of honouring my Metis culture, I included the Metis infinity symbol in the logo for Mindful Managers. 


In alignment with Indigenous world views, it is my belief that if organizations embraced spirituality it encourages employees to bring their holistic and authentic selves to work: mind, body, emotion and spirit. My vision is to help bring awareness and guide organizations to embracing spirituality in order to increase love, joy, compassion and empathy in the workplace and bring much needed healing to the planet. As Chief Seattle said: "Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together."

If you are a heart-centred, mindful manager or leader and believe that people should be encouraged to bring their holistic selves to work then you are in the right place.

I am honoured you are here. You are welcome to explore, interact, engage and reflect.

All my relations.
