A simple, yet very powerful, employee noticing practice.
Your mindfulness is expanded when you take time to notice new things or see old things in new ways. Ellen J. Langer’s research on mindfulness demonstrated that when we notice more about others and things we like them more and are more engaged with them.
So you don’t have to pay attention, it cost nothing. Give your attention freely to whoever or whatever is right in front of you. You can start small by even noticing 2 new things.
When you give others your attention, your mindfulness expands, and you create stronger more engaged relationships with others. You will also find yourself more engaged in your work.
Make everyday noticing your true gift for the New Year.
