ABSTRACT
A growing body of research has shown that mindfulness improves people's effectiveness in and out of the workplace. But many of our organizational structures are designed in ways that challenge our ability to pay focused attention to our work. For instance, the relentless influx of email can drain us of the mental capacity to tackle more strategic issues. Fortunately, organizations can be designed to foster contemplative awareness in every aspect of their processes and practices. In this article, Art Kleiner shares how a consulting firm improved knowledge sharing in the organization by changing mindless practices one team at a time.
