The Case Against Habit – Where Mindful Leadership Shines
Two vectors always come together: habitual ways of thinking and acting and the environment we try to navigate. Under many circumstances, our old, automatic ways enable us to get to our destination. But in a rapidly changing world, contexts shift, habits are a poor fit, and our ‘autopilot’ takes us off course. Not only is this true in our personal life (where self-leadership is the operative skillset) but also professionally (where our leadership can make the difference between thriving, surviving, and failing). What can we do about this?
MYPRISM Override Your Autopilot Choose Mindful Leadership, a book written by six leadership coaches, offers the reader a framework for both anticipating and interrupting autopilot breakdowns. The required shifts in mindset and perspective, values, skillset, and practices move a leader towards curiosity, humility, courage to experiment, discipline, and clarity. Each letter of the MYPRISM acronym stands for a piece of the puzzle.M is for Mindfulness
Y is for asking the question, “Why?”
P is for Perspective
R is for Reality
I is for Inquiry
S is for Staging
M is for Move
