Abstract

This paper aims to explore how leadership is developing over time through the notion of mindfulness. Taking a process thinking approach, the study breaks the traditional limitations of treating leadership development as spending more time in cultivating leadership-related knowledge, skills and abilities. Instead, the approach enables researchers to open up the ‘blackbox’ involved in the development. Based on two longitudinal case studies from China, the findings suggest that the framing of leadership development should be expanded by viewing it as lived experiences developing over time, namely an ongoing process. It also reveals the potential contributions of mindfulness on promoting personal creativity and innovation.
