Mindfulness on siinses voos viimase aasta jooksul saanud varemgi tähelepanu vähemalt neljas eraldi sissekandes (vt siit, siit, siit ja siit). Siinviidatu on kirjandusülevaade organisatsiooni perspektiivist ning avab kolm mindfulnessi varjundit. Tekst võiks huvi pakkuda suurele hulgale lugejaskonnale nii organisatsioonides kui paljudes teistes valdkondades aga ka tudengitele, sest uurimismetoodika pakub kirjandusülevaate koostamiseks palju kasulikku.

Kontekstiks:

Mindfulness has stirred increasing interest in managerial practices, with prominent firms such as Google and General Mills proposing mindfulness-based programs to promote worker wellness and productivity.

Senistest käsitlustest:

Unfortunately, mindfulness research has tended to be grounded in distinct and fragmented literatures, making the implications and informed applications of its findings difficult, and ultimately reducing the potential mindfulness will have efficacious outcomes in the workplace.

Uurimismetoodikast:

Bibliometrics techniques offer a ‘birds-eye view’ of scientific activity within a field, enabling researchers to make informed decisions about profitable research directions. […] In the present article, we use the two complementary bibliometric techniques (Walsh & Renaud, 2017) to conduct our literature review and guide our readings: (1) reference co-citation analysis (RCCA; introduced by Garfield, 1979; Small, 1973) and (2) document bibliographic coupling analysis (DBCA; first introduced by Kessler, 1963).

Olulised eristused:

If mindful attention and mindful conceptualising are two complementary information processing modes, behaving mindfully would amount to engaging the most suited of them based on some meta-level of mindful understanding of how these two modes operate in our mind and in relation to the constraints of the situation. Indeed, detecting when to engage in what mindful mode requires a higher-level, a meta-mode.

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

In an effort to reconcile the mindfulness field, we propose integrative ways to understand the mindfulness construct by specifying (1) mindfulness processes (mindful attention, mindful conceptualising and mindful metacognition), (2) mindfulness dimensions (state and trait) and (3) mindfulness development (through metacognitive practice).
