I sense another non-academic curriculum on the way.
Becoming a more mindful school leader
Being ‘present in the moment’ can be a powerful stress release
[president of the Association of California School Administrators]
In a world of round-the-clock distractions, being a mindful leader is a powerful tool. Mindfulness is simply the act of being consciously aware and of focusing on the present moment in a nonjudgmental way.
Research shows that mindfulness improves concentration, inspires creativity and energizes our interactions with others. Whether managing stress or achieving nirvana-like relaxation and focus, the qualities of mindfulness can help increase our leadership skills and personal satisfaction.
Mindfulness and being in the moment are really important to me. Whenever I hear someone tout the benefits of mindfulness, I know I no longer have to listen to the rest of what they say.
