When leadership is a way of life, it’s easy to get consumed with work. No matter if we’re administrators, entrepreneurs, parents, creatives, or caregivers - we get depleted. Exhausted. Burned out.
With tools of mindfulness, our relationship with the hard stuff changes. We learn how to direct our attention in ways that refresh us. We start building an internal haven by tapping into the body’s natural capacity to regenerate and heal. We bring our best to the table because we remember that our best work begins within ourselves.
Experts agree that the social and emotional soft skills of leadership are the real game changers. Like empathy. Compassion. Listening skills. Emotional literacy. Self-regulation. Boundary-setting. Giving and receiving feedback. Mental clarity. Equanimity. Self-discipline. Motivation. Unflinching support for ourselves - no matter what.
When we lead ourselves with wise compassion, all that energy we lose second-guessing ourselves gets converted into living in alignment with what matters the most. Neuroscience teaches us that soft skills are learned with practice. And nothing rewires the brain like mindfulness.*
