Why mindfulness and behavioural economics in politics?
“Research at Aberystwyth University has used a radical combination of training in mindfulness and behavioural insights to help us see how public servants can become more effective leaders, better decision-makers, and provide better advice. And I want to see all of these insights contribute to the kind of leadership I want to see in our public services in Wales”
Mark Drakeford, Wales First Minister, Mindfulness in Wales conference, November 2019
Dr Rachel Lilley combines extensive academic research with many years practical experience working with teams and senior leaders to offer unique and practical insights into attention, emotions, consciousness and decision making and behaviour change.
Everyone uses their embodied mind to make decisions and collaborate with others. Few people understand how their mind works. Too often we learn about our mental world when we are struggling,. We need to build capacities of mind that will support us to work better together, prevent mental health issues, and enable us to address the wicked challenges of our time such as inequalities and climate change.
