Developing resilience and people-centered leaders

In today’s workplace, colored by high uncertainty, rapid-paced, difficult and stressful demands and more employees are unwilling to accept a purely top-down approach, call for leaders to have new ways of leading – incredibly focused and clear with business expectation, yet need to engage/provide  employees the “space” for more meaning, happiness and connectedness at work. There are three important qualities of mindful leadership – mindfulness, compassion and service:-

  • MINDFULNESS helps you with focus and resilience; understand how your mind works, become more self-aware.
  • COMPASSION is not about being soft; understanding people at an emotional level, truly caring about their well-being.
  • SERVICE helps you to get out of the way; provides space/support where people thrive. People-centered org culture.

Put together, these three qualities are a powerful way for leaders to improve the way they lead themselves, their people, and organization. In addition, a large body of research has shown effectiveness of mindfulness and compassion practices in improving physical and mental health, in the various setting i.e. medical, mental health, education and workplace, for the last three decades.
