Mindfulness: How to Stay Sane in an Insane World
The Networking Company

Business is cottoning on to mindfulness says Helen Nicholson, author of 'Mindfulness: How to Stay Sane in an Insane World'.

Every week Bruce Whitfield interviews the author of a new or popular business book.

This week he talks to Helen Nicholson about her book 'Mindfulness: How to Stay Sane in an Insane World'.

Nicholson is CEO of the Johannesburg-based leadership development consultancy The Networking Company.

While mindfulness is a well-known concept by now, businesses have finally cottoned on to it she says to "realise probably what Buddhist monks knew 2,000 years ago".

I think the neuroscience has become really compelling, because now suddenly the science has caught up with ancient wisdom... You can actually see MRI scans of how mindfulness practices actually manage to calm people's brains.

Helen Nicholson, Author - 'Mindfulness: How to Stay Sane in an Insane World'

If there's anything we've learned over the last three years it's that calming your brain will actually be a key future skill.

It has relevance now just from a personal resilience perspective, but I also think it has great relevance in business... When you're calm while everyone else is losing their minds, you immediately are going to make better, more strategic decisions.
