Synopsis

HOW DO WE WANT TO LIVE AND WORK? 

The film FROM BUSINESS TO BEING tells the story of three executives – a former investment banker at Lehman Brothers, a project manager in the automobile industry and a regional manager at the pharmacy chain "dm" – who embark on a quest to find ways out of the "rat race". Their motivation: the desire for more enthusiasm, meaning and authenticity in their work.

Through their sensitive and yet forthright approach Hanna Henigin and Julian Wildgruber provide deep insight into the emotional sphere of the otherwise closed world of business leaders and explore the question: To what extent are the crises of today‘s workplaces crises of consciousness? Can meditation and awareness training help to free people from stress provoking patterns of thinking and behaving, and get back to themselves?

What skills will be required from business leaders in the future and how do organisations in a globalized world have to be re-thought and restructured towards more collaboration?

In their search for answers, the filmmakers meet experts from economy, science and meditation who build bridges between "business" and "being" and give new impetus for a cultural change in the business world, focussing on the well-being of all stakeholders.

FROM BUSINESS TO BEING is a film that touches people, inspires discussion and above all encourages an honest look inside: Who am I? What inspires me? And how do I live and act accordingly? All that is based on the conviction that changes towards a better working environment and society are rooted in a growing awareness of the individual.
