Many studies on the current job market find that many employees are disengaged and stressed. Mindfulness helps promote engaged presence, peaceful calm, and positive thinking.
Mindfulness increases your awareness of yourself and others. You can learn to listen attentively and resolve conflicts as your ability to approach others with compassion instead of judgment grows.
As we learn to pay attention to our situation, to give pause before making a decision, a natural leadership arises. Mindful leaders are concerned with the well-being of everyone on their team and have a keen insight to find the best advantages.
