If you had any doubts about the benefits of a mindfulness practice, check out this Tedtalk (link below) by Lieutenant Colonel Jannell MacAulay of the United States Air Force and the Director of Human Performance and Leadership for the 58th Special Operations Wing. Under her command the 400-member joint 305th Operations Support Squadron was awarded the top Airfield Operations Complex of the Year in 2016 and Air Mobility Command Operations Support Squadron of the Year for 2016.
She credits mindfulness as the driver of that success. She taught mindfulness to her team and modelled mindful leadership to build a culture of trust and connectivity in a high stress environment.
She is one impressive lady as her husband is often away on deployment leaving her to lead a large team in the Airforce as well as manage a smaller team of 2 young children at home.
