Bringing mindfulness to the workplace has the potential to decrease people’s stress and anxiety through heightened awareness, which in turn leads to improved performance.

Why You Should Use Behavioral Assessments for Hiring
Technical Skills matter when you’re making a hire, but they’re only one piece of the puzzle. You don’t just want to hire someone who can adequately perform tasks without knowing if they will fit into your company’s culture, have the same values as the organization and generally be happy at their job. Fortunately, by utilizing a Behavioral Assessment in your hiring process you can predict those other pieces of the puzzle by looking at actual data on how prospective employees are expected to behave in a given role or a work situation.
The Importance of Listening as a Leader
If we can retrain ourselves to focus on the present moment and truly listen to our people, many issues in the workplace can be avoided and you can get to know your people and better understand their needs in order to make them happier.
