While trawling the net for inspiration and information, I came across a couple of unrelated items that I wanted to share with you.
We’ve all reported and heard anecdotal evidence about the benefits of Reiki, stories about how people are affected by it. The success stories help to build more success, and quiet any doubts that might arise from time to time.
For those of you who would like a more objective form of validation for a change, the UK Reiki Council website has compiled and summarised a page of research into Reiki. These are scientific studies that were performed under controlled circumstances, each of which provided empirical evidence that Reiki does indeed stand up to objective testing. The page provides a couple of related links, but you’re best bet is to Google the studies if you want more information.
I’m referencing the next article mainly because it’s written by a former Managing Director turned business coach who can use the phrase “business ethics” in a sentence without being ironic. So I filed it under “Hopeful News”.
The article, in today’s Journal calls for a revolution in business to make it more ethical. It’s written by Maybe International founder Brian F Smyth, who has the radical idea that being ethical is actually better for big business than using some of the alternative profit-centered practices currently in place. He also maintains that ethical business practices have a positive impact on the overall health and welfare of people in the business, around the business, and the world in general. Of particular interest to me was the value he placed on human emotion. Sounds like common sense to me.
Brian’s CV includes several years at General Motors, where he served as a Personnel Manager, a Production Manager and a Managing Director.
Maybe International provides Business Coaches who work in partnership with people and organisations to make them stronger, better, happier and more profitable.
