What is Mindfulness?

YouTube video

Mindfulness is present moment awareness: an ancient eastern practice that encourages us to pay attention to this current moment rather than focusing on an individual’s past or future. Mindfulness has positive implications for health/wellness, self-empowerment, lowering implicit bias, culturally inclusive leadership, and social & environmental justice.

Businesses are incorporating Mindful Leadership training into their strategic plans and professional development. 
Mindfulness helps employees:

  • reduce stress by focusing on the present moment;
  • remain calm under pressure so they can respond rather than react;
  • stay healthy by increasing their resilience after a stressful situation

Studies show, benefits of Mindfulness include:

  • increased health, wellness, and morale of employees;
  • fewer sick days (saving organizations and corporations millions each year);
  • better, more thoughtful decisions;
  • more effective leadership
