Mindfulness makes you a better leader
The Harvard Business Review Blog Network recently published an article on how mindfulness is important when making strides in your career. While many measure success in monetary terms, many are embracing the idea of making a positive impact on others.
The practice of mindful leadership gives you tools to measure and manage your life as you’re living it. It teaches you to pay attention to the present moment, recognizing your feelings and emotions and keeping them under control, especially when faced with highly stressful situations. When you are mindful, you’re aware of your presence and the ways you impact other people. You’re able to both observe and participate in each moment, while recognizing the implications of your actions for the longer term. And that prevents you from slipping into a life that pulls you away from your values.
