Although self-leadership and mindfulness comprise the same self-regulatory core (observation) regarding attention in relation to mental states and have similar outcomes (e.g., stress reduction, increased performance), the relationships between self-leadership and mindfulness have not yet been examined. In this study, 174 participants completed self-report measures of self-leadership and mindfulness. Results showed that self-leadership was positively related to the observing facet of mindfulness. The importance of observation and the role of openness to experience in self-leadership and mindfulness are discussed.
