Mindful Leadership

Wellness Benefits

Studies with military and police personnel, IT professionals, special education teachers, accident and emergency nurses and elite sports players demonstrate improvements in wellness and performance after just eight weeks of mindfulness practise.

Wellness improvements include reduced rumination, neuroticism, depression and angry hostility. Wellness improvements also include increased life satisfaction, self-esteem, vitality, longevity and self-actualisation.

Performance Benefits

Workplace specific research in mindfulness also demonstrates performance related benefits including improved cognition, competence, creativity, attention, memory, time- affluence, ethical decision- making, enhanced relationship quality, reduced burnout and increased risk-management.

Leader mindfulness has also been linked to increased employee performance and wellbeing.
