Harvard Business Review (Health section) heralds the importance of Mindfulness.
” In our information-saturated workplaces, this mental skill is becoming as important as emotional intelligence and technical skills. Research shows that people spend almost 47% of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they’re doing, which impairs their creativity, performance, and well-being.”
HBR developed an assessment, in collaboration with Accenture, to help people understand how mindful they are, both at work and in general. It is based on HBR’s work at Potential Project conducting mindfulness training for thousands of individuals in organizations around the globe. Check their questionnaire here.
