Mindful Leadership in Action

w Manage distractions and mind-stray

w Be more present for people you lead

w Ease anxiety and lessen stress 

w Regain balance and curtail confusion

Mindfulness is a hugely beneficial practice all leaders need to cope more calmly and constructively with the constant challenges we face at work, and in life – unrelenting busyness, pace, pressure, overload, stress and a deluge of distractions that keep us in a state of continuous divided attention  [more on Finding Focus]

Many leaders think of mindfulness as mainly meditative – and possibly impractical. But you don’t have to meditate to be mindful.

There’s lots of everyday ways to train your brain to be more  calm, clear, focused, present, emotionally balanced, and  at the same time, lessen-off some of the stress we accumulate in busy workplaces.
