Studies show that employee engagement as well as "Happiness-At-Work Culture” are decisive factors for the success of an organization; and the awareness and behavior of leaders are the most important factors in creating those things.  

However, according to Gallup's survey in 2016, 87% of the global workforce are disengaged; and 82% of employees see their leaders as fundamentally uninspiring. All those things happen despite the fact that organizations aroud the globe invest approximately $46 bilion annually on leadership development programs (according to Deloitte's report in 2015). 

This shows that most leadership development programs have not reached the root of the problem. Peter Drucker, who is considered the Father of Management theory, once said: "You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first." Most leadership training programs focus on managing external things, such as people management, strategic management, or financial management. All of these are important, but not enough to create employee engagement and happiness. In order to those things, as Peter Drucker said, leaders need to start with themselves, and specifically learn to manage their own minds. 

Based on the research of Havard Business Review over two years on over 35,000 leaders from thousands of companies in more than 100 countries as well as the latest research on neuroscience and behavioral psychology, and especially based on four of the world's most prominent current books on Mindful Leadership that PACE-MLV has taken the copyright, translated abd published exclusively in Vietnam: (1) The Mindful Leader written by Michael Bunting; (2) Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader by Marc Lesser; (3) The Mind of Leader by Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter; (4) Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the Mindful Leadership program (MLP) was born to help leaders know how to manage thier own mind and develop their leadership capacity through 5 Critical Practices of Mindful Leadership, which are:
