Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | Empowering Women from Boardroom to Bedroom | Scoop.it

 

The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga

 

Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.

You're welcome. Sorry about the delay in replying.
Jem Muldoon's curator insight, February 15, 2013 4:15 PM

When top business schools highlight the importance of mindfulness with courses for future leaders, we now have precedence for including it in educational leadership training.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 15, 2013 7:01 PM

I like the ideas that mindfulness is combined with Peter Drucker's work and that large companies are looking at meditation as something that will benefit employees.

I couldn't resist reading Anne-Marie  Slaughter's review of Sheryl Sandberg's much-discussed new book, Lean In, in the Sunday Book Review of The New York Times.
Lauran Star's insight:

Bravo Eliane Pofeldt!  I agree - women can and do more than just corporate America - and one size does not fit all.  While Mrs. Sandberg's book focuses on HER climb to the top - it is not everyone's climb ... Lets face it we all do not want to be a cut out.  Women have sooo much more to give not just to the job but also to themselves.

Great Leaders Know When to Forgive

Great Leaders Know When to Forgive | Empowering Women from Boardroom to Bedroom | Scoop.it

Leaders must be firm and foster accountability, but they also must know when to forgive past wrongs in the service of building a brighter future. One of the most courageous acts of leadership is to forgo the temptation to take revenge on those on the other side of an issue or those who opposed the leader's rise to power.

Instead of settling scores, great leaders make gestures of reconciliation that heal wounds and get on with business. This is essential for turnarounds or to prevent mergers from turning into rebellions against acquirers who act like conquering armies. Nelson Mandela famously forgave his oppressors.

A great example is Nelson Mandela who famously forgave his oppressors.

TRY TO UNDERSTAND:

In forgiveness we are not saying that what happened was OK.
To forgive requires a higher consciousness, it requires knowing a greater truth about the nature of reality. Forgiveness opens the door to the heart and allows love to return. To forgive means "To give as before."

Revenge is not justice and it is no strategy ... learn to forgive.
