A mindful leader is someone who is aware of what he or she brings into the relationship with the team members and the team. In order to be able to do that, it is important to create space between what comes to us and how we react. This creates more choices about how we can deal with situations. It helps us deal with setbacks, better manage our own energy, and then it helps us support our team even better.
