Mindfulness has been studied by credible researchers, and there is a growing body of evidence that demonstrates the real, tangible benefits of mindfulness that are relevant to leaders.

Numerous studies show that mindfulness practitioners have better focus, attention, and cognitive performance. In addition, being mindful means being present and aware. At Neo-Strategic, we put this in the framework of enabling particular leadership skills and capabilities. This includes things like attentive listening, which fosters empathy and connection with others, self-awareness, which is the pre-cursor to self-management, and the ability to better navigate challenging circumstances and strong emotions. These qualities in turn are the building blocks of emotional intelligence and of resilience – important attributes for leaders to develop and strengthen.
