As business is inherently stressful, especially for those in leadership positions, maintaining a restorative workplace environment is essential to promoting sound mental health and achieving sustained competitive excellence. Eich stresses that chief executives must continuously monitor their teams for ennui and malaise. As the previous article describes the impact of spirituality in the workplace, Eich notes the importance of creating an environment marked by the arts and measured forms of relaxation — whether in the form of comforting music, gardens, artwork, and/or time off from work.
