Mindful leadership is a studied science. It involves the capacity to be accepting, curious, and humble in ways that enable you to selflessly and compassionately connect with others to bring about the best and promote deep and lasting levels of change. At its core it is grounded in the ability to be aware, accepting, and open to ongoing experience which provides for greater insight, courage, connection, understanding and potential. Mindful leaders have high expectations and are tenacious in their desire to make a difference. Combine that with their astute understanding of dynamicsundefinedpersonal, interpersonal and organizational - and you have the keys to deep and lasting change, relationships, and results. Mindful leadership entails a whole new set of leadership practices related to everything from strategy and change to feedback and innovation that are more engaging, empowering, and potent. Mindful Leadership makes an indisputable difference on the bottom line.

Mindful leadership skills are essential in today’s challenging work environment. As the rate and pace of change continues to accelerate and challenges become more complex, leaders who see the big picture, as well as understand the subtleties and nuances, will thrive. Mindful leaders can be decisive, while at the same time exploring a myriad of options. They can inspire others to take action, while encouraging professional autonomy. As demands for performance and productivity rise and the resources to meet those demands remain the same or dwindle, managers at every level must fine tune their ability to be more mindful.
