Meditation and social responsibility

How do we make business people into decent people? Teach them to meditate. Take a look:
Recent research lead by INSEAD concluded that while a standard executive education approach failed to increase the likelihood of managers making socially responsible business decisions, meditation based coaching programs showed a significant impact on the probability to act in a socially responsible way.
Overall this does suggest that meditation has a number of implications and applications in organisations beyond the simple ’stress reduction’ approaches that many people associated it with.
The above paragraphs were from blog posting entitled "INSEAD study shows benefits of meditation in business".
