A primary task of leaders is directing the attention of others to where it needs to go.  To do so, leaders need to learn to put aside distraction and focus their own attention first, says Daniel Goleman in his latest book on ‘Focus’

Managing Mindfully? The ability to set aside distractions, focus attention and engage with whatever’s unfolding in front of them in a measured way is foundational for leader self-awareness along with a raft of other must-have traits like being present, open-minded, emotionally-balanced and less stress-prone.

Mindfulness Matters? It’s a hugely beneficial practice to help leaders navigate the turbulent workplace terrain they face today… Many leaders are looking for ways to find balance amid the chaos, stress and demands of everyday work life so they can put in a peak performance without sacrificing their sanity and well-being.

Are you ready to make this your year of living mindfully?  Do you yearn to get back in touch with what really matters in your leadership-life? Apart from being good for leader performance and business bottom-lines, mindfulness can help leaders:

x      Stay calm, connected, emotionally balanced

x      Manage distractions and mind wandering

x      Dampen down anger and disruptive emotions

x      Make better decisions and take wiser action

x      Be more present for the people they lead

x      Ease anxiety, relieve stress, curtail confusion

x      Look after your health and well-being


Retrain your leader-brain. Neuroscience discoveries show even a few minutes of mindfulness exercise a day can change our brain for the better and help leaders tap into their inner-space to find a haven of clarity, calm and focus in a maze of confusion, uncertainty, conflicting priorities and unrelenting stress.

“We all have habitual ways of responding to emotional challenges. Mindfulness training alters these habits by making it more likely that one neuronal pathway rather than another will be used...(it) carves new channels in streambeds of the mind.”

Richard Davidson ‘The Emotional Life of Your Brain’


Mindfulness Minus Meditation. While meditation is undoubtedly a beneficial practice, you don’t have to meditate to be mindful. There are many other every-day ways to train your brain to focus attention, downgrade distractions and heighten presence and clarity – deep and abiding mind-skills to lift your leadership capacity and personal productivity and strengthen your sense of balance and well-being.
