The offered research is devoted to a problem of studying of intellectual potential of employees. Use of intellectual potential in the organization practice is subjected to the analysis. The author offers a technique by means of which it is possible to estimate intellectual potential. This analysis is based on assessment of contents of project proposals which employees address to the management of the companies. Calculation of characteristics of project proposals has been carried out, and these characteristics have been compared with positions of workers. The comparative analysis of use of intellectual potential of employees of two companies is carried out. One company treats a telecommunication segment, another represents a retail. It is revealed that between the companies there are expressed differences in structure of intellectual potential of their employees. Each company imposes special requirements to employees of linear and average management. These requirements distinguish one company from another. Also in each company distinctions according to requirements imposed to employees of different levels of management have been found. The established distinctions have allowed estimating balance of distribution of characteristics of intellectual potential of workers of the companies depending on the level of their positions. Zones of an intellectual resource and a zone of deficiency of intellectual potential are found.
The research makes a contribution as in methodology of assessment of intellectual potential of employees, and in practice of human resource management, offering criterion for evaluation of compliance of the employees to requirements of a position in the concrete company.

A separate section discusses the potential of mindfulness interventions in fostering balanced time perspective.
