Mindfulness is a term with variable definitions, at the heart of which is a way of being that guides our approach to leadership with Emotional Intelligence. We often prefer the term “mindful awareness” since awareness is the true foundation for activating personal agency.
Mindful Awareness is recognizing our experience as it unfolds in the present moment.
It is both the conscious directing of one’s attention as well as the underlying attitude, character, and intent with which we do so. With practice and training, we can cultivate the ability to direct our focus, respond in a more witting, thoughtful manner, and move through our lives with greater efficacy, purpose and ease.
