Mindful : October 2018
Eventually, we began to meditate at our monthly commanders calls and weekly leadership meetings. As a squadron, we practiced together once a month and, for people who saw me more often, once a week. How can mindfulness help performance? Maybe a student pilot doesn’t have the best landing. The student takes off again and comes back around for the next one. As the instructor, I can tell if the student is still thinking about the previous landing. If they can’t get that first landing out of their head, the second landing won’t go well. You need a skill to help you recover. That’s what mindfulness does: It brings our awareness back to the moment so we can perform at a high level, despite the mistakes we made two minutes earlier. What will you do now that you’ve retired from the military? The number one thing is being more present with my two young children and my husband. And I’ll be con- sulting with the Air Force and other organizations on performance-related programs. I am passionate about building a culture that’s more focused on performance and that recognizes mindfulness as a performance-enhancing tool. I’m also passionate about integ rating self-care into our leadership model. ● “WE ALL CAN USE MORE TOOLS TO GET BETTER AT WHAT WE DO.
