“Mindfulness is not meditation. It is the simple process of noticing new things, which puts us in the present and makes us more sensitive to context and perspective. It is the essence of engagement.”
Dr Ellen Langer’s work shows that the application of mindfulness principles aren’t just a fad, but rather can dramatically enhance organisational success. It can result in greater efficiency through less waste of human creativity and resources, greater innovation in problem solving and overall higher job satisfaction.
Her mindfulness approach focuses on achieving these results by helping leaders create a high-performing, creative and integrated team dynamic and environment in which staff are able to be their “best selves” — key hallmarks of a successful organisation culture.
