Mindfulness for Leaders
Dr Jutta Tobias talks about her work on mindfulness and how it can be applied in leadership development.

The ability to be ‘in the present moment’ releases the mind from habitual, ruminative patterns that lead to worry, fragmentation and burn-out, and enables more intuitive, productive and creative responses to new challenges.
