Overview: TLEX fosters personal clarity, social connectedness, and organizational cohesion for personal and team culture

transformation. With greater personal calm and clarity, participants feel more connected to teams and the organization, resulting in intrinsic motivation, creativity, and enthusiasm at work. TLEX is a 12-16 hour workshop that includes experiential techniques, group processes, and guiding principles. Rationale: GE Executives and employees continually navigate complex and dynamic situations, managing fragile relationships with stakeholders and changing demands and information. These situations can aggravate stress and agitation, putting pressure on individuals and teams. Stress brings with it negative emotions like anxiety, frustration, or hopelessness, which can interfere with the ability to perceive situations with clarity and objectivity and make sound decisions. Stress also brings fatigue and burnout, which lead to underperformance, low motivation, and poor outcomes. When social connections among employees are weak or tenuous, such pressure and stress can fragment teams, break down communication and threaten organizational culture. Employee wellbeing is the foundation for fostering agile and creative minds that can problemsolve and adapt to change; cohesion and deep social bonds can buffer team breakdown during challenging times. Organizational success requires investment in employee resilience and team cohesion. Approach: Transformation is a deeply personal experience that catalyzes imagination, intuition, and creativity. When transformation stems from wellbeing and authentic social connection, it allows leaders to more clearly perceive and observe people and situations as they are. Imagination, intuition, and creativity arise naturally from a relaxed, calm, and clear state of mind. Through meditation, breathing, and yoga, TLEX fosters in participants a calm and centered state of mind, a high degree of self awareness, greater creativity, and an ability to connect with others and organizational goals naturally. The program has been designed to give leaders increased dynamism and create change agents with the ability to drive innovation and sustainable impact from a state of personal mind-body wellbeing.

Understanding how the mind, breath, and body are all connected together to work in the NOW. To see the results of medical tests being performed and how

the process is improving the mind and body, is a great motivator for anyone to start the process. It helped me learn about breathing, yoga and how we can redure stress. Thank you this was so awesome I enjoyed this program, it's been awhile since GE Healthcare has run group programs ie Statistic programs in the 1980's, French culture, Six Sigma etc, programs that created/reinforced a corporate culture, together as a group, not online, in cubicles as now. It maybe a stretch for some people to accept this program but there are people in GE that it could be a real life changer/improver. Maybe a requirement for Managers, then a trickle down. Ed Lingo 212000940 Please consider offering this program to all employees. Maybe via referral by HRM or medical? I think that meditative techniques can be very powerful and have a positive effect. The offering of this training is very positive and progressive step on the part of GEHC. I hope that there will be some further actions to help encourage and support the continuation of this practice to enhance employee health, wellness and improve performance and leadership. It was a wonderful two day program that was enlightening and will be so valuable on some many levels. It could be beneficial if group practices are regularly organized within the building. Thanks, Zhanyu I feel that the illuminate program has helped me to evaluate & prioritize the various aspects of my life. It has given me a framework to improve my energy and increase my capacity to handle the demands in my work & personal life. I look forward to continuing this practice and reaping the benefits of it. Its a great program with really helpful tips and tools. I was really surprised to know that the solution to all our complex problems could be so simple and just a breath away. It was also very interesting to understand the science and research behind the study - it just goes to prove that the practice has been tried and tested and has been found very successful and I personally did notice the difference. I absolutely loved it! I would definitely recommend that people experience this for once cause words do no justice in explaining the experience. It just needs to be felt from within which can only be achieved if you go through the training. I felt great after this two-day program and look forward to integrating the breathing/meditation/yoga practice into my daily routine to help me stay centered, focused, and stress-free in my personal and professional life. Thank you for the opportunity!

I have been practicing most of the techniques taught in the sessions. I was taught this in a traditional setting in India and am able to guide small groups. Please let me know how I can help as this is a topic very close to my heart.

This program caused and interesting change in perception and gave a great deal of knowledge regarding the operation of mind and body. Also, it left us with a toolbox of methodologies to further explore self mastery; while reducing stress and preventing disease. Good Job!
