“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
Practicing mindfulness allows anyone to live more and more in the present and to develop fundamental resources for one’s professional and personal life, such as the ability to work on goals to achieve, to focus attention on a specific matter, to handle anxiety and emotions, to reduce stress, to develop higher resilience and to regain personal projects. Some areas of impact:
By nature, an individual looks back at the past or forward to the future, at memories of past actions or toward his intentions and next goals.
Cultivating the ability of living in the present means being able to push anxiety away and to identify your goals in a more effective way, to choose the most suitable processes to achieve more positive progress.
Effectiveness Inside Myself
Practicing mindfulness means listening without judgement to your needs and to your body, it is an invitation to step away from daily pressures, to stop and listen to yourself, to consciously manage technology, to take a “break” before speaking or acting.
Expanding our deep listening, we expand and recognize the emotions involved, we learn to interact with them “unplugging” the automatic mechanism of the immediate reaction – a kind of reaction that is generally neither very productive nor useful in developing our personal and professional relationships.
Effectiveness with Others
Being together with other people means being able to give them room and to patiently and carefully listen to them without judgment, as knowing each other means sharing and growing by what others have to offer.
Being able to trust others, to creatively involve others, to stay next to each other, means creating a new inclusive economy that aims to transform behavioral and managerial ways into ones in which people are the first consideration – From Ego System to Eco System.
