Mindfulness in Leadership
Mindfulness in leadership is a global phenomenon. No industry including the giants of Silicon Valley have been able to ignore relevance of mindfulness at workspaces.
Mindfulness is a state of mind developed by focusing one’s entire attention on the present moment, while appreciating and accepting feelings, thoughts, and bodily experience. Brain undergoes changes in structure that creates the associated sustained boosts in positive and relaxed feelings.
A study conducted by a Harvard affiliated team out of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) came across surprising conclusions regarding the tangible effects of mindfulness practices on human brain structure. Average of 27 minutes of a daily practice of mindfulness stipulates “massive boost” in brain gray matter.
Combining practices of mindfulness with cutting edge neuroscience or neuroplasticity, Magnum Opus works to fully develop all aspects of a being, leading to states that researches confirm allows for the realization of one’s highest capabilities, awakening our hidden talents and potentials.
The greatest challenge to follow one’s true authentic self is when the pressures and seductions are intense. That is when it is most crucial to be self-aware.
This of course is not a new idea. Self-awareness is central to Daniel Goleman’s emotional intelligence. Mindfulness leads to thickening of the cerebral cortex; the area responsible for attention and emotional integration. Mindfulness is a logical step in this process of gaining self-awareness that should be combined with experiences in leading through challenging situations and gaining awareness through feedback and group support.
Any organization committed to developing leaders needs to offer courses and other experiential opportunities that enable them to develop greater awareness of themselves, their motivations, and their strengths and shortcomings.
