Inspiration for Employees and their Leaders
Review of the "Leadership and Workplace Mondays" theme from the public HHP Facebook Page, December 2018
"A mindful leader embodies leadership presence by cultivating focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion in the service of others....You can learn to lead with excellence by cultivating your innate capabilities to focus on what is important, to see more clearly what is presenting itself, to foster greater creativity, and to embody compassion....These choices often lead to a win-win-win scenario: good for the organization, good for the employees, and good for the community."
"It is also true, though, that these tumultuous times can offer great opportunity and ample possibilities for innovation, as the world becomes smaller and we begin to see the potential to meet the complexities of the day in ways that are truly creative, productive, and compassionate. It's a time to take leadership, and to redefine what it means to lead with excellence."
"Just as a pebble thrown into a still pond can create ripples spreading throughout the whole of the pond, so too can the cultivation of leadership presence go far beyond the effect it has on us alone."
"Taking note of the qualities exhibited by leaders we admire can help all of us pinpoint how to become better leaders ourselves."
"If we see the impact that mindfulness has on safety and on outcomes for patients in reducing health care errors, how can we not start...looking at this as real way that we can improve the quality of work?"
We don't do leadership; we are leaders from the Garrison Institute
