Today conversations in HR and elsewhere border on AI and its importance, but I contend that mindfulness plays an even greater significance. Why? Because people drive machines, not the other way round.
All the technological marvels, including AI, are man’s creation. So, invest in human intelligence, myriad positive implications of AI will follow.
But how do you invest in humans and their intelligence? You do it by unlocking their creativity. Which can be brought about through the practice of "mindfulness leadership". Understand the implications and positive effects of mindfulness at a personal level and at the workplace.
Learn how to gauge your own motivations--in life and career-- through the practice of "shamatha" and "Vipassana meditation". Learn about your "life's bigger agendas and goals" that can come to the fore at one of those what I call "Vipassana moments". Also, recognize that by the following mindfulness, we can better our family lives too. How? Mindfulness deems us more lovable and compassionate. When we empathize with others, we understand their "unique situations, obstacles, and difficulties". It helps us develop tolerance and patience.
My own reading of stress in our executives and the role of "Mindfulness" in countering discords have helped me create this effective course on happiness, creativity, and leadership.
