The development of leadership within healthcare organisations is vital. Never has it been so important that aspiring leaders are equipped with the theoretical and practical-know-how to drive forward health reform and ensure quality, particularly in an industry where leadership is so often misunderstood. In this timely and exciting new book, Christopher Johns addresses the most vital aspects of health care development and education, and reveals the tensions of becoming a leader within health care organizations. Being able to understand and work towards resolving this tension is essential in becoming an effective leader. Developed from the narratives of over 80 aspiring-leaders, Mindful Leadership draws upon a rich source of data and insights to support the re-direction of leadership within NHS organizations across various disciplines. Leadership is liberating. Everyone should aim to be a leader at every level of the organization. To be an effective leader, however, requires an awareness and acceptance of circumstances that is best termed 'mindfulness'. This book has been written to enable health care practitioners to become genuinely mindful leaders.

EDITORS’ INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND We are experiencing an unprecedented period where wide ranging and disruptive major global change is taking place around us. In this context, the theme of Mindful Leadership and Sustainable Development provides a point of reference and pathway for understanding the contemporary chaotic situations. These disruptive changes challenge our understanding and meaning of humanity and truly question whether or not, we are able to live in a society where justice, equality, peace, and prosperity abound. In the Buddhist light, a focus is placed on understanding the Buddhist teachings to develop solutions for dealing with these wide-ranging problems. Both the scope of change and the response from a Buddhist approach are core to the content of this volume. It is of paramount importance that any investigation and development of solutions for the changes taking place, require guidance from the Buddhist philosophy. As a starting point for discussion, an initial focus is placed on providing a thorough and critical understanding of the character and context of change. In doing so, we also seek to clarify and outline the nature of a Buddhist approach. In completing this review, it is productive to see that given the complex issues being dealt with, the papers do generate different frameworks and viewpoints within the broad term of “approach.” The frameworks based on the Buddha´s teachings are not fully fixed and agreed upon by all. Therefore, our term “approach” refers to a set of arrangements and viewpoints that act to inspire further discussion and development. Given the above context, this volume is a collection of conference papers presented and published for the panel on the first sub-theme of UNDV 2019 on Mindful Leadership for Sustainable Peace on 13 May 2019 at the Tam Chuc International Convention Center, Ha Nam, Vietnam. The panel commemorates the occasion of the 16th United Nations Day of Vesak Celebrations 2019. Through the contributions of participants and their papers at this workshop, this volume provides a diverse and rich range of thinking and wisdom rather than more traditional mainstream thinking or conventional wisdom. Treating the Buddha’s teachings as a basic theoretical reconstruction, we examine the relationships between societies and Buddhism. We combine the analyses of the conflicts, trends and dynamics affecting future global development with focused studies on a range of policy areas for improving societies. In the Buddhist light, our two most crucial aims in this period of disruption are to greatly increase the influence and impact of Buddhism as our foremost duty; and that the Buddhist responsibility contributes to creating a new foundation for Mindful Leadership and Sustainable Development.

This exploration of the leadership mindset is a stand-alone part of the “Purpose” series. Leadership requires a mindset of wisdom which brings order inspired by love. Without love and empathy, leadership becomes exploitative, abusive, or tyrannous. Sometimes, we find ourselves thrust in positions of leadership without the mental foundation to handle it. This can create a lot of pressure but can also provide opportunities to learn and grow through experience. Some of the main ideas we will explore here in relation to purpose are: - Thoughts for meditation on leadership - The challenges that occur when we find ourselves in leadership positions without the right mindset - The mindset needed for leadership - Taking leadership of our minds - Leading with empathy

This digital collection, curated by Harvard Business Review, offers four books on the topic of emotional intelligence, found by bestselling author Daniel Goleman to be twice as important as other competencies in determining outstanding leadership. In Primal Leadership, With a New Preface by the Authors, the authors show that great leaders excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others using emotional intelligence competencies like empathy and self-awareness. The best leaders are “resonant” leaders—individuals who manage their own and others’ emotions in ways that drive success. In Resonant Leadership, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee provide an indispensable guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders and offer a field-tested framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. And in Becoming a Resonant Leader, Annie McKee, Richard Boyatzis, and Frances Johnston share vivid, real-life stories illuminating how people can develop emotional intelligence, build resonance, and renew themselves. Finally, HBR’s 10 Must Read on Emotional Intelligence presents 10 articles by experts in the field of emotional intelligence, all of which will inspire you to monitor and channel your moods and emotions; make smart, empathetic people decisions; manage conflict and regulate emotions within your team; react to tough situations with resilience; better understand your strengths, weaknesses, needs, values, and goals; and develop emotional agility.

The complexity and relentless pace of our world places exceptional demands on leaders today. They work incredibly hard and yet feel that they are not meeting their own expectations of excellence. They feel disconnected from their own values and overburdened. By the thousands, they seek out books on leadership skills, time management, and “getting things done,” but the techniques these volumes offer, useful as they are, don't often don't speak to the leader's fundamental sense that something is missing. Janice Marturano, a senior executive with decades of experience in Fortune 500 corporations, explains how Mindful Leadership training integrates the practice of mindfulness-meditation and self-awareness-with the practical tools of management, enabling leaders to bring a wider range of their capacities to the challenges at hand. We already know from scientific research that mindfulness practices enhance mental health and improve clarity and focus. FINDING THE SPACE shows how this training has specific value for leaders. This is not a new “leadership system” to add to the burden of already overworked people. It brings the concepts of mindfulness into the everyday life of anyone in a leadership role, through specific exercises that address practical issues-the calendar, schedule, phone usage, meetings, to-do list, and strategic planning, as well as interpersonal challenges such as listening and working with difficult colleagues. Leaders who have experienced mindfulness training report that it provides a “transformative experience” with significant improvements in innovation, self-awareness, listening, and making better decisions. In FINDING THE SPACE TO LEAD, Marturano masterfully lays out her proven techniques for promoting mindfulness in the busy executive's working life.

Thousands of people have experienced healing and reconciliation with Thich Nhat Hanh and his community of monks and nuns. Retreats are held at monasteries and college campuses; talks are given at business headquarters and huge public arenas. A community that started out with just six dedicated practitioners has grown to a worldwide network of monks and nuns and laypeople. As the community has grown, Nhat Hanh noticed that, “the growth of our community, our ‘corporation,’ does not do any harm to the environment and to the people living on Earth.” InLeading from Within, Nhat Hanh shares the mindfulness techniques that have led his community to grow and flourish. Anyone in a position of authority will benefit from his idea of leadership, based on understanding and radical compassion for oneself and others. Meditation allows for an unvarnished evaluation of ideas and situations. It fosters respect and collaboration. With this point of view, setbacks and the inevitable ups and downs of life and work are not defeating. Thich Nhat Hanh’s insight gives us the courage to admit and reorient when things are going wrong and to see a way ahead.

Catapulting Change identifies a myriad of opportunities left on the table far too often as similar patterns and trends emerge exposing gaps in leadership that systematically disarm individual talent, passion, and drive from those who possess these qualities in abundance. Leaders stunt their organizations by converting individuals desirous of delivering greatness into individuals stripped of their spirit and passion, reducing them to deliver "just enough" to meet the minimum requirements of the jobs but never more. They are hard-boiled down to mediocrity. Catapulting Change delves into the grander themes of Leadership, Communication, Change Management, Incentive Programs, and more, to simultaneously launch organizations and people. While these appear to be largely aimed at organizations, they are vital for those travelling down the entrepreneurial path and for those seeking to enhance their businesses. The book delivers warning shots, contemplations, and experiences about the fine balance between managing people and success. Along with these major concepts, the book sheds light on tangible "little things" that will drum up reader frustration because of their relevancy and poignancy. It dispenses with the cliché, but offers tactics to help navigate through organizations while provoking thought to overcome and modify unnecessary trends. It calls attention to the power and might of details as they are often discounted as insignificant variables in a formula of quintessential leadership that drives a culture of consensus, collaboration, and coordination. There is a strong demand for communication, execution, and the like, but often organizations fall quite short of expectations. Attrition of talent is the direct result as people feel unappreciated, undervalued, and not respected.
