Calm under pressure? Run your business the mindful way
If recent events in politics have confirmed anything, it is that we live in unpredictable times where old assumptions no longer hold true.
Creative thinking is crucial for business success through a period of uncertainty. Upheaval presents a chance to embrace uncertainty and remain level-headed, focused and compassionate under pressure. That’s where mindfulness comes in. Research in contemplative neuroscience suggests that mindfulness – the practice of focusing your attention on the present moment – makes us more resilient, regulates our stress response, increases emotional intelligence and strengthens our ability to focus.
