Korn Ferry: How Meditating Can Help Build Resilience
In this article from Korn Ferry, regular contributor Daniel Goleman discusses the importance of resilience within today’s leaders and how mindfulness meditation can help build this trait. The ability to recover from changes or unfortunate circumstances is vital for executives to lead their organizations in a successful direction as these challenges arise. Because of this, many companies offer resilience training to their employees, which often includes a focus on mindfulness meditation.
Goleman points out that practicing mindfulness meditation aids in one’s ability to bounce back from stress, ultimately building resilience. Studies show that even those beginning to meditate, and without putting in an extreme amount of time, find a reduction in cortisol, a hormone that leads to stress.
