Abstract

The preponderance of literature on mindfulness and change is broad and far reaching with most examining the mindfulness construct from a psychological perspective and exploring the impact and influence on individual well-being. What is not so readily discussed is the correlation of mindfulness to leading organizational change and transformation. This paper seeks to address this gap by conducting a systematic review of the literature on mindfulness and organizational change and theorizes that mindfulness facilitates individual and organizational cognition to more efficiently meet the challenges of change.

Keywords: mindfulness. leading, organizational, transformation, review, psychological perspective, change
