Leading mindfully in Dynamic Times: An empirical study on the increase to leadership effectiveness using mindfulness-based training and coaching.

This research examined the influence of a Mindfulness-based Leadership Training and Coaching Program (MBP), in garnering three aspects of leadership effectiveness; extra employee effort, productive performance and followers’ satisfaction with leadership.

The research hypothesized that mindfulness-based leadership training and coaching program can influence leaders’ frequency in adopting authentic, transformational and transactional leadership behaviors to enhance leadership effectiveness.

These predictions were tested separately on two control and intervention groups. Results suggested that the combined training and coaching mindfulness-based intervention program had predictive effects between the practice of mindful attunement of leaders’ behaviors and enhancement in leadership effectiveness, even in a short span of time. This research study uncovered empirical evidence with practical implications for researchers and practitioners in the realm of leadership. Findings supported the notion that MBP training and coaching intervention could potentially lead to return on investment in leadership development initiatives.
