Have you heard the term “Mindfulness”? Let’s start with a short explanation.

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful. And there’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain.

How is Agile, Authenticity and Transparency connected to Mindfulness?

Example … You are on the stage presenting your new product to the 1000 people mostly from your company. How do you feel? You want to quickly say a few words and go? You are there because no one else from the team wanted to present? OR You enjoy the moment on the stage because you have many important messages to say to your audience about your product and service packed in bad / good stories.

You enjoy the moment, you feel present, the messages go from your heart.
