Whether you’re a startup guy building an app everyone doesn’t know they need yet or a business owner offering a timeless service, your customer and your client are key. You need to be able to fully understand the customer experience of your product. Mindfulness is essential for building compassion and understanding toward others. You are able to recognize your own experience and needs more non-judgmentally, thereby being able to recognize that of others without judgment. When you let judgments and preconceptions get in the way of being mindful, you make decisions for your customers and clients which might work against them. You do this in relationships as well- allowing the story you tell yourself about who people are, what they think, what they feel, what they want, and what they need, to get in the way of what’s real. Ultimately, you are building a relationship, through your product, for every client and customer. Mindfulness helps you bring awareness to that relationship, forming a better and better product as you go along.
Mindfulness makes you a better boss
Speaking of mindfully attending to the needs of others with more empathy and compassion- there is the matter of your employees. Bosses who aren’t mindful aren’t as good of bosses as they can be when they are mindful. Your practice of mindfulness makes you a better boss because mindfulness makes you a better leader. You’ve likely seen the image of a boss versus a leader. A boss is shown on a desk high above is employees pulling the desk. The leader is at the front of all his employees, pulling with them. Mindfulness is known to help you raise your awareness and sharpen your attention to what is going on in the world around you. That means you’ll get a better sense of what your team needs in order to support you, support themselves, and support your product. More importantly, mindful leadership helps you become more aware of what you need to do to support your team.
