Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Focus, clarity, creativity, compassion, and courage. These are the qualities of the mindful leaders. They are also the qualities that give today’s best leaders the resilience to cope with the many challenges coming their way and the resolve to sustain long-term success.

 

The real point of leverage — which though it sounds simple, many executives never discover — is the ability to think clearly and to focus on the most important opportunities.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 10, 2014 2:22 PM

It concerns me when we see mindfulness as a "real point of leverage". That diminishes the meditative purpose underlying it and shifts it to a calculative way of thinking. Don't we already have enough of the latter and not enough of the former?

Peace Overtures's curator insight, March 11, 2014 9:36 AM

The important thing is to have a regular introspective practice that takes you away from your daily routines and enables you to reflect on your work and your life — to really focus on what is truly important to you. By doing so, you will not only be more successful, you will be happier and more fulfilled in the long run.

Chris Shern's curator insight, March 12, 2014 6:08 AM

Things are not changing as fast as the world around and within business. There are still far too many managers in a world with an increasing need for mindful leaders.

La asertividad, el autoestima, la empatía y otras habilidades sociales pueden practicarse y aprenderse de la misma forma que otros tipos de conocimiento. No obstante, tradicionalmente no se ha tendido a darles la atención que se merecen, razón por la cual en la actualidad pueden llegar a ser competencias desconocidas y apenas desarrolladas en muchas personas.
