from mind-full to MINDFUL: the intention/instr uction intersection By Julie Winkle Giulioni L eadership development is a multibillion dollar industry in the United States (and growing). Leaders at all levels of organizations routinely enjoy training and coaching around a range of competencies, skills and behaviors in an effort to enhance their abilities to work well with and through others. Additionally, leadership development is a go-to strategy for organizations looking to elevate engagement, performance, innovation, quality and bottom-line results. Over the past decade, savvy practitioners have advanced the field. Now leaders can learn through the use of sophisticated assessments and technology-enabled content delivery, such as webinars, virtual instructor-led training (vILT), and e-learning. But for the most part, although methodologies have changed, we're still addressing the substance of leadership much like we've done for decades. And that's a problem, because the workplace and the employees within it have changed substantially. HOW THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE IS CHANGING LEARNING No one will argue that today's business landscape is the most volatile, information-rich, complex, stressful and competitive environment that leaders have ever had to face. This includes globalization, doing more (lots more) with less (frequently lots less), and ever-escalating customer expectations. In response, leaders work feverishly to do it all. They practice constant connectivity, checking email an average of 288 times daily, according to Jacob Morgan in his Forbes post. They buy into the illusion of multitasking as a means to enhance productivity. They expend as little energy as possible on non-essential activities like breathing. Research suggests that 80 percent of us breathe shallowly during the act of reading email or otherwise working on a computer, a condition that Linda Stone labeled email apnea.
