ChiBall provides mind body education and products that bring “Mindfulness to Life”.
We are dedicated to serving you with simplicity, innovation, authenticity, passion, and respect.
Our philosophy is that by exploration of the self and through dedicated and disciplined practice, we can cultivate a state of inner strength, peace and wellbeing so that we can live a harmonious and balanced life.
We believe that by nurturing and respecting ourselves, we nurture and respect the planet. Through the responsible and ethical use of resources, we can heal and sustain our precious environment.
Wherever you are on your journey, we are here to serve and support you by nourishing and guiding your mind and body with simple practices and quality products.
Since its inception in 1994, ChiBall has developed from a unique and innovative mind-body exercise programme, into a professional organisation delivering world-class education and supporting the growth and development of the mind-body industry. As the most comprehensive mind-body programme on the market, our products, classes, and training have been delivered around the world into over 40 countries.
Our vision is to transform the health and wellness of people through inspirational mind body exercise and philosophy
To realise our vision, we are committed to the following mission to bring benefits to our customers, teachers and communities:
To deliver exceptional service to our customers, teachers and partnering organisations through caring for the communities in which we serve
We will do this by:
- Marketing and promoting mind-body education through classes, workshops courses, and events
- Conducting training for teachers, presenters and trainers (to deliver the above mentioned)
- Mentoring and coaching Trainers to support/cultivate the mind-body community and training
- Developing effective, accessible, high quality products, programmes and services for the public, students and teacher communities
If you stop for a moment and think about your own life, you’ll see that your values form the cornerstone of all you do and accomplish. Each of us makes choices in life according to our most important values — values determine how you spend your time and define the goals by which you are truly living your life.
Developing the ChiBall values came from a question of understanding what was important to the individuals in the team and within the organisation, and determining what would best assist us to support the sustainable development and growth of ChiBall.
Why Identify and Establish Values?
“At a time of crisis, we are again at a point of recognising the need for values … Values are the treasure of life, making humans wealthy and rich. Values are friends, bringing happiness in life … Values bring independence and freedom, expand the capacity to be self-sufficient, and liberate one from external influences… Values offer protection, and one who experiences this is able to share this protection with others. Values bring empowerment, and it becomes possible to remove weakness and defects … Values open the heart and transform human nature so that life is filled with compassion and humility. As we develop values within the self, we share the fragrance of those values with the world around us, and in this way move forward to a better world.”
–Dadi Janki, Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (1995).
Understanding our organisation’s personality is essential to bringing ChiBall into alignment at all levels, creating a common foundation for decision making, making promises that can be delivered, and setting behavioural guidelines for every member of the ChiBall Team.
Organisations, like people, have natural preferences that affect how they gather information, make decisions and work. Understanding this frees the organisation to be true to itself, which attracts employees and customers who share its values. Effective organisations identify and develop a clear, concise and shared meaning of values/beliefs, priorities, and direction so that everyone understands and can contribute. We have defined these values as
- authenticity and
These values impact every aspect of our organisation. The ChiBall team has committed to support and nurture these values, which provide a crucial foundation for building a prosperous and vibrant ChiBall World Community. As a team we feel passionate about these values and are dedicated to demonstrating and modelling them in our actions, personal work behaviours, decision-making processes, contribution to the business, and interpersonal relations.
Organisational values help each person establish priorities in their daily work-life and guide every decision that is made. Only the active participation of all members of the organisation will ensure a truly organisation-wide, value-based, shared culture.
Our next step is to apply the core values to the continuing development of the business, and to how we work as a team on a practical level. Reward & recognition programs and formal recruitment processes will be created to support and enhance this process. Essentially, we are looking for those individuals who are, of course, technically competent, but also demonstrate and embody the core values of the organisation.
What do the ChiBall values represent?
Simplicity – Simplicity includes being clear and responsible in our actions and communications. Simplicity is about having an uncomplicated approach in what we do and services we provide. The value of simplicity allows us to appreciate the little things and people that make a huge difference in our lives.
Innovation – Innovation is the discovery of new ways to create value and benefit for our customers and colleagues. Innovation is the life-blood of our organization, and is a continuous and organic process.
Authenticity – Authenticity is present when we behave in ways that are sincere and true to our commitments and intentions. As leaders, we must cultivate trust, build on strengths, and increase commitment to shared goals through genuine dialogue with all key stakeholders.
Passion – we include our hearts in our work and in our actions instead of just using our heads. Passion is what helps creates rich experiences and meaningful connections between people which transcend any marketing, advertising or public relations efforts.
Respect – Respect is treating others as you would like to be treated; being considerate of people’s feelings; recognizing the value and achievements of people, property, the environment, the company, the brand and valuing yourself as a real ChiBall contributor.
What does this mean for our customers?
Our values help us to best serve and support our customers in living lifestyles of health and sustainability. Acting according to our values on a daily basis provides our customers with confidence in the quality and dependability of our products and services, and is essential in developing lasting relationships built on satisfaction and trust.
We strive for excellence in all our endeavours and are committed to the continuous improvement and innovation in delivering effective holistic mind-body practices to our customers. We regularly engage and communicate with our customers and take feedback into consideration of key decisions and developments.
As long as all of our company decisions are based on these values and preferences, success will be realised, as measured by a strong sense of identity, consistency in behaviour, clarity in message, and alignment in our decision making.
On a closing note, not all core values are created equal! Respect is our most powerful value and it must infuse the whole culture of our organisation. Core values should live in the world of black and white not shades of grey. When core values are clear, all the contributors on the team understand what’s expected of them, which allows greater and more consistent delivery, performance, and satisfaction in achieving our goals.
Central to the ChiBall vision and core values is a desire to serve others, and as a business we seek to serve our employees, customers, teachers and community. However, a business is more than just a compelling vision and strong core values – it’s about the people that we attract as part of the vision, and how we continue to serve them through education and support all throughout the journey. A key part of serving is being able to create joyful new beginnings for people and inspiring them to truly connect with both head and heart.
What the Future Holds
So what does future look like? In the near-term, we are progressing towards regular monthly trainings and workshops across several countries around the world, where people can readily participate in classes, embark on their journey through training, and easily come back to reconnect with others in additional talks, workshops, and gatherings.
We see the ChiBall Worldwide community continuing to grow into a strong, vibrant, creative and supportive community of mind-body practitioners, making a real and positive impact in peoples’ health and wellbeing through the use of movement and healing modalities.
As the ChiBall Community develops, we will develop in-country centres and facilities dedicated to mind-body practices and development. Our talented and passionate Master Trainers will serve as mentors and role-models for other committed teachers, and will gain recognition as inspirational leaders in the health and mind-body space.
Through on-going collaborative work with groups in the complementary and medical communities, further clinical research will be gathered about the effectiveness of mind-body exercise in supporting and accelerating healing. We continue to remain dedicated to new product development and continuous improvement in everything we do.
In summary, our vision is to transform the health and wellness of the world through inspirational mind body exercise and philosophy. We see our organisation as a vehicle for that change — there is much to do and there is much opportunity to participate and contribute.
We welcome all who share in our vision and values, and look forward to inviting you to join on us on the Journey towards building a bright and vibrant future together.
