Standing Out From The Crowd As A Manager – With Mindfulness

“Mindfulness is a state of being fully present, aware of oneself and other people, and sensitive to one’s reactions to stressful situations. Leaders who are mindful tend to be more effective in understanding and relating to others, and motivating them toward shared goals. Hence, they become more effective in leadership roles.” – William W. George

Mindfulness in Management is critical for leaders!

Many managers focus on exceling in their domain knowledge as a means to stand out in a crowded and competitive field. However, in today’s dynamic and highly connected world, the ability to quickly discern changes, communicate and influence others to work towards a common goal is one of the key determinant of superior results. Managing complex people relationship is another. A manager who has superior clarity and focus of mind holds the edge.

Mindfulness is a state of mind that focus on the present moment. A mindful manager see things with clarity and conceptualize with agility. He develops strong people relationship, and his confidence and composure inspires the people around him. A true differentiating skill must come from within. Mindfulness provides a manager with the critical edge to be successful, and a strong foundation to build deep domain knowledge.

A world leading technology company has adopted Mindfulness as a competitive differentiator. Discover and master it!
