Mindful leadership is not about doing, it’s more of a way of being. It’s how we show up for people in any environment; whether that’s in the boardroom, at your kids sporting event or within your local community group . Mindful leadership is understanding that to be an effective leader of others, we first have to learn how to effectively lead ourselves.

You will learn simple but effective mindfulness practices that you can start applying to your leadership today. This in turn will help you feel calmer and more grounded in your leadership role.
As leaders we are increasingly facing a dilemma that pulls us in opposing directions. The pace of work is increasing and we are often called upon to achieve greater results with fewer resources. On the other hand, it comes as no surprise that workplace stress is also on the rise. As leaders we have an obligation to manage the mental wellbeing of ourselves and our team, but at the same time get the job done. How do we balance these seemingly paradoxical missions – mindful leadership!
This mindful leadership book is written for people who may be a little bit sceptical about traditional mindfulness practices, but are curious nonetheless. An introduction to mindful leadership, this book is a no fluff, no bullsh*t guide that will positively impact your team, your working environment, and your own effectiveness as a leader.
