Practicing mindfulness has many benefits in your private and working life, such as enhancing your mental and physical well-being, improve focus and concentration increase resilience and emotional intelligence.And why you, as a leader, should care about mindfulness at the workplace?Daniel Rieber, co-founder of WEVOLVE GmbH, whose mission is to introduce mindful leadership programs to start-ups and larger companies, shares some insights and results of their program conducted at a large e-commerce and tech company in Berlin. On a high level the results were very encouraging and indicating a measurable positive and sustainable impact on the workforce and teams within the areas of focus, stress management, and reduction of negativity. Daniel Rieber says that “change happens from the inside out, change always starts with you. And with you collaborating, interacting with people: we always start with the self.” One concept about a different level of connection we experience throughout our lives is called the ripple effect. The effect you have in the world, or in your company/organization, the intangible, energetic impact you have on the whole begins from you. As a mindful leader, it is essential to understand the ripple effect you are having on those you lead.  Furthermore, Daniel Rieber and Reiner Kraft, PhD discussed the topic of self-awareness. By practicing mindfulness, you sharpen your self-awareness and discover some fleeting and ferocious inner critic, those limiting thoughts and false beliefs. Watch the video on The Mindful Leader blog (or on YouTube) or listen to the podcast to learn more about how to let go of those negative thoughts, habits and beliefs, and progress in your transformation journey!
