Harvard Business Review ~ Developing Mindful Leaders

Harvard Business Review ~ Developing Mindful Leaders | Emotional Intelligence (EQ) | Scoop.it

"If you want to transform an organization it's not about changing systems and processes so much as it's about changing the hearts and minds of people," says Weiss.


"Mindfulness (EQ) is one of the all-time most brilliant technologies for helping to alleviate human suffering and for bringing out our extraordinary potential as human beings."

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 11:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

I thought that the points on "deepening their sense of purpose" and "expanding their capability to navigate difficulty" were particularly interesting.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 9, 2014 7:23 PM

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au
