Mindfulness Within an Organizational Context - A Premise for the Intrasubjective Being
Paperback - English

This study explored the capacity of mindfulness to counter mechanistic properties of behavior withing an organizational context. By countering the mechanistic properties, individuals have greater potential to 1) become mindful of professional and personal growth opportunities, 2) realize their holistic selves, and 3) broaden the organization's capacity for achievement. Lived experiences of mindful occurrences were documented in field notes, journals and a recorded group discussion. The data revealed characteristics of mindfulness as they related to teh organizational social system, the components of the Meadian self (i.e., an "I" and a "me"), and the intrasubjective relationship(s) between the self's components. The study's conclusions 1) revealed mindful experiences of thought, feelings, actions, behaviors, and the situations in which the arise, 2) substantiated the presence of a "me" assuming the attitudes of the organization, 3) revealed the presence of an "I" responding to the "me's" assumptions, and 4) founded the potential for an intrasubjective approach among the components of the self.
