Improved Emotional Intelligence: Leaders practicing mindfulness develop a greater capacity for empathy and communication, essential for managing diverse teams and creating an inclusive workplace culture. Every leader needs followers, people follow people who ‘get them’, developing empathetic skills is crucial in authentic leadership.
