Dr. Eric Holsapple
Founder, Facilitator & Mentor
Dr. Eric J. Holsapple, best selling author and business leader, has realized the value of mindfulness as not only a path to personal success, but as a sound business strategy.
Mindfulness can increase company productivity, reduce healthcare costs, and give businesses a competitive edge. It also creates an opportunity for far-reaching influence and impact. When shared within an organization, mindfulness produces a ripple effect that can not only transform company culture but also expand the happiness and well-being of its employees, their families and communities, and essentially the world.
In addition to providing leadership at Living in the Gap, Eric has been a successful developer, entrepreneur, CEO, university lecturer, yoga and meditation practitioner and teacher, and philanthropist. He holds an MBA and a Ph.D. in economics.
