’Cane Talk: Leading with Attention: Optimizing Your Performance with Mindfulness

In today's dynamic environment, successful leaders must be attentive, adaptive, and agile. Navigating these demands can be stressful, particularly in high-pressure situations. The emerging field of contemplative neuroscience has shown that mindfulness training can bolster attention, decision-making, and mood in high-performance leaders. Amishi Jha, neuroscientist and associate professor of psychology, works with military generals, federal judges, and tech company leaders to research how we can optimize our best assets for success - our capacity to pay attention. We hope you hope you enjoyed hearing from one of the field's pioneers about the cutting-edge brain science of attention and mindfulness.
