The Downsides To Mindfulness Practices At Work

The Downsides To Mindfulness Practices At Work | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
Too much mindfulness and meditation at work can do more harm than good. Here, a critic outlines some problems with the popular practices.
Jenny Ebermann's insight:
There is no such thing as the quick method to approach mindfulness. And if suddenly you avoid conflicts instead of embracing and dealing with them, this might be very counterproductive!

Although this is about business, there are some key links to some hurdles to overcome in our schools.

In a day and age of more connectivity, is it not surprising that isolation appears on this list?

Emotional Intelligence: The Social Skills You Weren't Taught in School

Emotional Intelligence: The Social Skills You Weren't Taught in School | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
You’re taught about history, science, and math when you’re growing up. Most of us, however, aren’t taught how to identify or deal with our own emotions, or the emotions of others. These skills can be valuable, but you’ll never get them in a classroom.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 2, 6:07 AM

I've always been a fan of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and I really appreciate this "tweaked" model because it maps it very close to the principles of employee engagement. 


On the survival level, I would add "I can't retire" as a common sign of disengagement.  As a supervisor, I do all I can to engage many of these staff as they often provide great context and insight as to what has been done in the past and how efforts can be optimized in order to succeed the next time we try them.  



Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 20, 7:13 PM

Only 15% reach self-actualization. I wonder how many never get beyond security? More importantly, what constrains those people? As well, we should not mistake people who are busy selling themselves and their limited ideas with anything but the security level.

There is  a difference between being a leader and being a manager in the same way being a boss is not the same as the first two. An ethical view, per Aristotle, suggests aiming for the good and beautiful brings kindness along.
