Steven Cohen, author of “Leading from Within,” says regular meditation maximizes leadership performance by strengthening your capacity in what he calls the four leadership pillars:
- Build Awareness. Through meditation, you learn how to observe your thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, without judgment. Enhanced awareness will help you see situations more clearly, solve problems more readily.
- Make Connections with people in ways that resonate with each individual. With a clearer mind, you will heighten your powers of observation, strengthen your ability to respond more thoughtfully, and listen more deeply.
- Maintain Perspective and improve decision-making as meditation provides a break from stress triggers.
- Finally, quieting the noise in your life, meditation will help you tune in to your authentic self and Achieve Your Potential.
