Mindfulness in the workplace has clear benefits. But to successfully implement these programs, you need leaders that are committed. In her new book, Mindfully Wise Leadership, Keren Tsuk, Ph.D., shares five essential qualities of a mindful leader.
A mindful leader is compassionate: The emotional connection between employees is critical to creating a sense of belonging and achieving a common goal.
A mindful leader is flexible: Mindful leaders have a flexible mindset. They know how to stop, examine an issue, and pivot when necessary.
A mindful leader is present: Mindful leaders dare to be present. When we’re present and embrace discomfort, we allow creative solutions to materialize.
A mindful leader is authentic: A mindful leader strives to communicate authentically and directly with people. Create an environment where employees can interact, listen and develop through one another.
A mindful leader is intuitive: Connecting to our intuition means being mindful of our gut feelings and emotions. While solving problems is vital in the business world, most people only use a rational mind.
