Newsletter: March 2014

Mindfulness and Leadership

This month I want to introduce the subject of mindfulness and the value of mindfulness practice for leaders.

Mindfulness? The skill, or mental discipline, of being able to curb our minds from wandering; to focus attention on the things most useful and helpful to us, in the here and now, instead of being distracted or consumed by stress.

Dr Craig Hassed of Monash University's Department of General Practice, argues that mindfulness is 'The most scientifically investigated form of meditation', and that research evidence is fast proving the benefits for general health, performance, inner peace, as well as other concerns like depression.

For leaders, constantly faced with multiple decisions to be made with limited time, practising mindfulness can reduce time wasting, minimise errors, decrease mis-communication problems.

We'll be returning to this subject in future issues. In the meantime you might like to read this article by Dr Craig Hassed.
