Why be mindful?

So as a manager why should we be mindful?

How many managers have you worked for that lacked emotional intelligence, a deeper understanding of connecting with with the team or someone who just lived in their own head?

In my experience managers can treat their team as a commodity and not as people.

In order to get the best out of your team we need to to remove the ego of this “manager” title and work together.

I have found meditation, mindfulness YouTube videos and reading to be useful resources that allows me to connect to myself before engaging with the team, and therefore I use my intuition and and not be reactive. This does take practice and I’m not perfect, nor expect to be perfect, but each day every scenario is one step closer to connecting to the space within.

Please leave a comment with your thoughts on working with a mindfulness manager or how you believe working in this way can help benefit the team the organisation and ultimately your development.
