It equips leaders with the tools to deal with stress and create the mental space they need to perform, before minor frustrations escalate into a bigger issue.
Dr Audrey Tang is a psychologist challenging the misconceptions surrounding mindfulness in The Leader’s Guide to Mindfulness – the definitive handbook for leaders wanting to bring mindfulness practices into their team and help their own personal development as a bonus.
