MINDFUL MEDICINE FOR STRESS MANAGEMENT & PEAK PERFORMANCE:
Thank you Oracle Women’s Leadership (OWL) for hosting me in Orlando to discuss the role of mindfulness and meditation for stress management, peak performance, and leadership.
In our lecture, we discussed the concept of mindfulness in creating a “mind that is strong medicine.” Mindfulness plays a role in helping you navigate chaos to calm as well as achieve peak performance.
Mindfulness is creating a present-centered awareness. When we practice mindfulness-based techniques such as controlled breathing or meditation, we shift out of a stress-success cycle into one of calm and control.
Mindful leadership is using mindfulness and concepts of mindfulness to create leadership presence. When we cultivate leadership presence, we shift away from a task manager mindset to one of being of service to our team members. A mindful leader is present for team members with a sense of compassion and gratitude.
