If you are still on the fence about cultivating your mind’s innate abilities to lead and live with excellence, here are three critical reasons not to wait:
1. You only have one life and you don’t want to spend it on auto-pilot. If you look at the date and wonder how summer can be more than half over when it seems like just last week you were looking forward to it, that’s a sign you might be missing something important – your life! Training your mind’s ability to notice when you are distracted and redirect your attention to the present moment means things won’t fly by in such a blur. You can live life more fully.
2. Wishing doesn’t make it so. As with developing physical fitness, training the mind requires both high quality instruction and a commitment on your part to experiment and practice with what is taught. Practical applications that help you bring mindfulness into your everyday life in non-intrusive ways are a cornerstone of mindful leadership training.
3. Leadership excellence is needed from every one of us, especially now. A leader is someone with influence; we all influence the people and communities in our lives. Whether leading a global organization, a team, a classroom or a family, we can take the responsibility for deciding to choose to lead with excellence – to be more focused, clear, creative, and compassionate. Mindful leadership training helps you become more of who you are by strengthening the mind’s innate capabilities, so you won’t be pulled into reactive, check-the-box decisions when creative, compassionate choices are needed.
