Mindful Leadership &
It’s hard to define the essence of good leadership, but if you’ve ever worked with a mindful leader you’ll know how satisfying that can be. Successful leaders have a vision and make work enjoyable, however demanding it is. They inspire their teams to give of their best, skilfully drawing on the talents and temperaments of their subordinates – they leading by creating a coaching culture.
The pressures that pull managers into dissonance are increasing. This is fed by a number of issues. Time compression, the demands of multitasking and the feeling that the world is increasingly unsafe are huge pulls toward dissonant experiences.
To keep your brain fit you have to train your mental muscles.
This prevents you from burning out and gives you the reserves when you need it most. But be aware that mindfulness is no bandage, no remedy or quick fix, you have to practice it, like keep your body fit in the gym, keep your mind fit with the mind gym. You wouldn't start weaving your parachute when you about to jump; wouldn’t you?
We need leaders in our organisations who practice mindfulness as a lifestyle skill & a leadership competency.
Daniel Goleman said: "The first task of management has nothing to do with leading others; step one poses the challenge of knowing and managing oneself. If leaders are constantly in the doing phase, without taking time for self-reflection and mindfulness, this knowing of oneself presents a serious challenge."
And Richard Boyatzis states: "Good leaders attain resonance with those around them through self awareness and relationship management, all clearly connected to mindfulness."
Mindfulness meditation is known as ’insight’ because the intention is to gain insight into the true nature of reality. While concentration involves focusing our attention on a single object, in mindfulness, every aspect of experience is welcomed and appreciated.
Evidence through scientific research, and more is published on a daily basis, shows without doubt, mindfulness as a useful technique for busy leaders who are aware that they and their organisations have become ’addicted to action’.
To help break the habit, leaders need to learn how to become more mindful;
in our risk-aware yet very complex worlds, a mindful leader is someone who will intuit sooner what is going on, ask the right questions and ensure that the important things are being prioritised.
To be mindful leaders, we have to take on the role of an impartial observer of everything that passes before our attention.
Our intention is not to be focused, but rather to be mindful, that is, to be fully aware and awake of what is going on in the present moment. It is being used as a key concept in leading important issues like safety to spot potential fatal risks, but it’s one that surely has currency as a core leadership attribute for us all.
Therefore the Mindfulness-based Awareness Coaching (MBAC) programme was developed to benefit you and your company by give you the necessary attitude, knowledge, skills and tools to succeed as leader in the 21st century.
