Mindfulness isn’t a common practice in local government, yet the lack of it is emphasized by the issues caused by the current hurry up, do it faster and cheaper model, even at the cost of civility in the workplace. Mindful leadership emphasizes so many things that matter for good leadership such as “see the big picture.” “think systematically,” “pause and consider the longer term consequences” and “don’t overreact.” Do we always pay that much attention? A recent Harvard study revealed that mindful leaders are more effective, get better results and are more respected by their employees. When leaders actively engage in mindfulness practices, the “psychological capital” of an organization rises. This is a wonderful opportunity for managers and key staff members to attend an FCCMA program together and reflect on their own leadership style and the culture they are helping to established within their organization.
