Description: As defined by Dr. Kabat-Zinn, mindfulness is “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally.” The practice of mindful leadership gives you tools to measure and manage your work and teaches you to pay attention to the present moment, recognizing and controlling your feelings and emotions, especially when faced with highly stressful leadership situations. Mindfulness is being used inside companies such as AetnaKeurig Green MountainIntelGoogleGeneral Mills, and Target to lower health costs, increase employee productivity, help staff stay “on task” and reduce stress through a combination of breathing techniques and mental relaxation.  Mindfulness was one of the hottest topics at this year’s World Economic Forum.
