“Mindful disruption” refers to a concept that combines the principles of mindfulness and disruptive innovation. It involves approaching disruptions or changes in a conscious, intentional, and aware manner, with a focus on positive outcomes and sustainable transformation. Mindfulness, derived from Buddhist traditions, involves bringing one’s attention to the present moment, being aware of one’s thoughts, feelings, and surroundings without judgment. It is often practiced through meditation and other techniques to cultivate a state of heightened awareness and clarity. Disruptive innovation, on the other hand, refers to the process of introducing new products, services, or business models that significantly alter the existing market landscape. Disruptive innovations typically challenge traditional ways of doing things and often create new opportunities or reshape industries. The concept of mindful disruption brings these two ideas together. It encourages individuals and organisations to approach disruptions and innovations with a mindful mindset, emphasising qualities such as intention, awareness, and ethical considerations. By applying mindfulness to the process of disruption, one can navigate change more consciously and empathetically, minimising negative consequences and maximising positive outcomes.
