A Mindful Approach to Business Leadership

In a piece adapted from his book on The New York Times’ site this weekend, Adam Bryant, author of the business book The Corner Office asked: “What does it take to lead an organization — whether it’s a sports team, a nonprofit, a start-up or a multinational corporation?What are the X factors?”

Having interviewed 70 business leaders, Bryant identified five such qualities – all of which resonate with a mindful approach to business — that all these leaders shared: “Passionate curiosity, battle-hardened confidence, team smarts, a simple mind-set, and fearlessness.”
