MindLife recognises the importance of thought leadership at all levels of our organisation.
Thought leadership is the ability to generate new ideas and insights that challenge the status quo and help to shape the future direction of an organisation. It’s about having the courage to think differently and to speak up with confidence.
Organisations that are able to harness the power of thought leadership will be better placed to navigate the challenges of the future. They will be more adaptable and agile, and more able to respond quickly to change. They will also be more attractive to top talent, as employees increasingly seek out organisations that value creativity and innovation.
MindLife embraces thought leadership through the following principles:
1. Encouraging a culture of curiosity
The first step is to create a culture that encourages curiosity and questioning. This means following lines of inquiry away from the status quo to explore and develop new insights in the field of mind-body health.
2. Encouraging open-mindedness
Many people and organisations are not aware that even in science and medicine there are beliefs and prejudices that hold us back from progressing. By being open-minded to new paradigms, innovations and ways of thinking we can develop more innovative and effective treatments.
3. Encouraging open dialogue
We all need to be open to dialogue and debate. This means creating opportunities for our employees to share their ideas and to have their voices heard.
4. Encouraging risk-taking
Innovation requires risk-taking. MindLife strives to create an environment where it’s okay to try new approaches, even if there is a risk of failing, as this is the only way to truly learn and grow.
5. Encouraging continuous learning
The best leaders are continuous learners. MindLife is an organisation which continues to learn and develop. We’ve created a culture and technology infrastructure which enables us, our collaborators (and even our applications themselves, using AI/machine learning) to continue learning from experience and improve.
As a company, we are always looking for new ideas and insights, and are open to change.
