While strategic vision and laser-focused execution make a strong leader, that’s only half the equation. Employees are an organization’s biggest asset, which means that providing direction, support, an environment conducive to open dialog and feedback is what ultimately leads to increased employee satisfaction and engagement. Further, this will create an environment with minimal stress, anxiety and overall good mental health. This is, essentially, the mark of a mindful leader.
