Mindfulness: Solving the demands of today's stressful workplace

An ancient contemplative practice rooted in Buddhist philosophy is finding its way into boardrooms, military organizations, and professional sports teams. Called "mindfulness", it is a concept that has received enormous attention from scholars, practitioners and, more recently, business leaders as a solution to today's stressful work environment.

Ivey Professor Michael Rouse and PhD Candidate Ellen Choi examine the growing body of research supporting the benefits of mindfulness and offer practical advice on how the concept can be applied to leadership in the workplace.
