Mindfulness study with business leaders shows…

Once again, the Harvard Business Review is sharing news about the power of Mindfulness. Their latest article about mindfulness, by Megan Reitz and Michael Chaskalson, reports on a study the writers did with 57 senior business leaders.

The study produced statistically significant improvements in three areas that are important for leadership:
resilience, the capacity for collaboration, and the ability to lead in complex conditions.

The key for the leaders was developing a 10-minutes-a-day practice, which became difficult for those who allowed their mindfulness practice to become a cause of more of the stress that mindfulness was supposed to resolve.

Because of the demanding pressures on them, the study discovered, “Leaders can rarely develop a new habit, including mindfulness practice, without help and support from others.”

In other words, you better find a moose near you to help develop your mindfulness practice!
