Being a successful entrepreneur takes a wide variety of skills. Entrepreneurial leaders are more successful when they are aware of what is happening in the present moment, develop their skills of intuitive reflection to understand their customer as well as their team. In doing so they are better able to acknowledge mistakes or the need to pivot without wasting time on self-judgement or incrimination and get on with running their business with agility.
These elements of mindfulness like being present in the moment, awareness of self and others, and creativity fueled by intuitive reflection allow for better focus and the ability to problem-solve with a cool head.
