Mindfulness Builds Resiliency, Adaptability, Fortitude in Leaders
Leadership mindfulness is not a running away from difficult choices, a method for avoiding the reality of a situation, or even disengaging from the world and events around us.
Rather, mindfulness (and meditation as well) is a technique to calm and teach our minds a less reactionary way of handling emotions, situations, and decisions. By observing the ever-constant stream of thoughts and emotions that envelope us throughout the day, we are better positioned to be more contemplative, analytical, calm, and purposeful in our actions, decisions, and behaviors.
Mindfulness can also lead to an increased ability to break current habits holding you back from peak performance and inner peace. Additionally, just like our physical bodies, our brains can change its physical form and function throughout our lives in a process scientists call brain plasticity. And the best news: by using mindfulness techniques and practices you can be in charge of your brain and its future development.
Mindfulness enables leaders to be better at determining the complexity and interdependency of problems, identifying any unconscious biases that might be hidden in their decisions, and more cognizant of any emotions that might be swaying thoughts, decisions, actions, and behaviors.
Mindfulness is also a technique for being mentally strong in tough situations, thus aiding with resiliency, adaptability, hardiness, willpower, fortitude, and determination.
