Mindfulness — the nonjudgmental acceptance of thoughts and
feelings — is a vital leadership skill,
according to Diane Sieg, author of 30
Days to Grace, a Daily Practice Guide to Achieve Your Ultimate Goals, who
offered career-advancing advice at the NEW Denver fall learning event, Oct. 15,
2014 at the Marriott Westminster in Westminster, Colo.

Two out of three
people deal with stress every day without paying attention to their bodies,
Sieg said. Practicing mindfulness
is a critical part of stress reduction and overall wellness.
One tip: Dedicate
five minutes a day to meditate, breathe deeply or do a single yoga position to
make a difference in your stress level.
"Make a commitment to yourself for 30 days and you'll notice a
transformation," Sieg said.
Attendees received a copy of Sieg's book and 30 days of weekly email check-ins
groups to the event include Frito-Lay, King Soopers, PepsiCo Inc. and WhiteWave
