    17.  Strengthen Leadership Presence with Mindfulness
    3m 22s
    Leadership presence is a critical attribute for successful leaders, but it can be hard to achieve. Busy and distracted leaders sometimes struggle to be fully present with people even when they spend a lot of time physically with them. And people feel it when their leaders lack presence. Mindfulness training can help leaders to silence their mental chatter when meeting with others and instead display leadership presence. In fact, leadership presence can give better outcomes from less time spent with colleagues. Use mindfulness to recognize when you are actually present, to clear any mental clutter before an important conservation, and to bring more curiosity into your conversations with others. A simple way to enhance your leadership presence is to reduce the use of technology when interacting with others. The mere presence of a smart phone inhibits our ability to truly connect as human beings so put it away when meeting with colleagues. FREE ACCESS
