Leadership skills such as decision making, communicating effectively, and inspiring trust are enhanced through practices in mindfulness and emotional intelligence.
Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that can help in your personal growth, particularly in self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.
Workplace studies show that having strong emotional competencies predict employee performance, leadership effectiveness, and wellbeing.
Scientific research indicates that how we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.
