Exemplary leaders are highly self-aware. They respond to complexity with agility, inspire others through presence, and know how to manage their energy to prioritise what matters.

In today’s business environment, mindful self-awareness has fast gone from an emerging trend to an essential leadership capacity. So, it is no surprise that leaders from across the globe are relying on mindfulness to maintain their leadership edge.

We pour a lot of our energy into work, yet the workplace can be a source of great stress as well as satisfaction. Even a moment of mindfulness and awareness can make work a better experience.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness focuses on one aspect of the body – commonly the breath. It observes the breath in a specific way. When we can discipline ourselves to do this, even for a short while, that act of focusing on only one thing trains our brain, in the same way that going to the gym trains our body.

Our mind is the most powerful instrument of all, yet we receive more instruction on how to use the latest technology than we do on how to use our minds. Left to its own devices our minds can resort to unhelpful thinking styles and patterns which can negatively impact on our performance, our mental and emotional wellbeing, and our productivity.

Mindfulness training offers an incredibly powerful approach to developing our happiness levels, utilising our mental capabilities, promoting emotional balance and boosting physical vitality. Research has shown that people who regularly practice mindfulness are happier, perform better, have greater resilience to stress, and enjoy healthier relationships. Many of these benefits accrue within weeks of regular practice.
