Fall is here. Kids are in school, sports are ramping up, work is accelerating out of summer vacation mode, and the holidays will be here before we know it. Feeling stressed yet?
Simply put, stress is a part of life and work. While we can't escape it, our response determines whether we suffer or thrive.
To achieve our goals in work and at home, all leaders (and particularly those of us who lean toward Type A!) need access to a diverse set of tools and habits to help regularly cultivate focus, resilience, and joy. Mindfulness is one of those essential practices. Through integrating mindfulness principles and practices at work, we're able to communicate more effectively, focus on what matters most, uncover innovative solutions, and make strategic decisions—even in the midst of competing priorities, looming deadlines, and challenging coworkers.
