Mindfulness is all the rage in the leading management circles of the world. Leaders from major corporations like Google, Microsoft and Aetna are all beginning the practice. In fact, according to HBR, “Time Magazine recently put ‘The Mindfulness Revolution’ on its cover, which could either be seen as hyping the latest business fad, or as signaling a major change in the thinking of executive leaders. I believe it’s the latter,” said Medtronic’s Bill George. But the question is not whether mindfulness will help leaders lead with purpose, but rather will it help them lead with clarity towards the ‘true north’ of value.
