Boost Performance by Managing Mindfully Mindfulness is the process of actively noticing new things. Paying attention to what’s going on around you, instead of operating on auto-pilot, can reduce stress, unlock creativity, and boost performance. To be more mindful and encourage the practice within your team: • Make not knowing okay. Encourage your team to ask, “Why? What are the benefits of doing it this way versus another way?” Such questioning helps you recognize and take advantage of new opportunities. • Imagine that your thoughts are completely transparent. If they were, you wouldn’t think awful things about other people; you’d find a way to understand their perspectives. • Remember that stress comes from how you look at events, not from the events themselves. If you feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities, question the belief that you’re the only one who can do a task or that there’s only one way to do it.
