Anyone can develop mindfulness by focusing on direct sensory experiences — instead of thinking about the past, future, other people, or themselves.

Company leaders are typically focused on strategies, data, and systems — in other words, big-picture goals. So it’s challenging to convince them that taking even a few moments to practice mindfulness is beneficial. But according to NeuroLeadership Institute CEO David Rock, tuning into direct sensory experiences (i.e., being mindful) can provide more accurate information about events — without the hang-ups of old habits, expectations, and assumptions.
