Scott Scherer, President and Owner of Catholic Travel Centre and Principal of CoreWorks Consulting, believes leaders can benefit in particular ways from mindfulness.

The examples that we give to people in class are situations they can work on in real life," Scherer explained. "I just talked with the COO of the firm and he was talking about how beneficial the course was for him. He meditated every day now and he thinks he's making better decisions. He sees situations more clearly. It's having a ripple effect into his family life."
"We should have taken before and after pictures of the people in the class," Scherer said.
Scherer, 55, became interested in contemplative prayer in his 20s. After a car accident in 2003, that left him "vibrating" he began to explore mindfulness as a way to "calibrate my nervous system without a pharmacological intervention. "I had a very strong bodily reaction after the accident, like an energetic reaction. He attended a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's model and then while studying at the Drucker School, Scherer took a class with Hunter on a mindfulness based self-management which "turbo-charged" his interest. "He and I had a shared passion for looking at the applicability of contemplative practice to organizational life and the contributions that it can make there."
Scherer has been coaching several partners in the firm for 4-5 years. After encouraging some of the partners to explore mindfulness, others became interested through taking Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction courses or other mindfulness programs on their own. In response, Scherer proposed a formal course for ten of the partners in the firm. "There's a mindfulness movement in the legal community," Scherer explained.
The firm agreed to his proposal and Scherer and Hunter created and co-taught the formal eight session course last fall, which was "fashioned to fit for lawyers.
"Some of the scenarios and examples we used would be specific to legal life," Scherer said.
The course met every two to three weeks; during the breaks between sessions, participants were expected to complete readings and practices. The sessions and readings covered topics including dealing with distractions, growing one's attention "in strength like a muscle," mindful conversations, and sensations in the body.
Scherer said, "We did some teachings around… how to equilibrate the nervous system by moving attention away from the part of the body that's feeling stressed, for example…We're about to go into the courtroom and I'm feeling stressed.
"It's a group with about 60 partners and so we'll have about one third of the firm now that will have studied mindfulness," Scherer said.
Scherer says the biggest challenge to his personal practice, which includes a morning yoga routine, occasional morning meditations, a formal five minute mindfulness break before lunch, two to three minute meditations throughout the day, and a mindful evening gratefulness exercise is "to not let anything else get in front of it in the beginning of the day."
For those interested in mindfulness who share this challenge, he recommends, "Be gentle and be patient with yourself.
