Abstract: Many publications highlight the importance of mindfulness in today’s world. However, it is vital to link this topic with organizational performance and ultimately with leadership, since leaders do not only directly influence employee but eventually also corporate performance. Companies are facing challenges regarding performance, pressure on the workforce is rising dramatically, since companies need to remain competitive and are thus trying to do more with less. Therefore, people are working more and harder while paying less attention to detail. With a constant flow of information, individuals can get overwhelmed quickly. Thus, it can be a challenge to focus on a particular matter and more importantly, to set priorities. This pace of life requires being mindful of activities from moment to moment, particularly in times where people are pressured to act against their own values. Studies show that times of pressure and stress can lead to unethical behavior and drastic measures.
