Mindfulness … and exasperation

As a Stanford University graduate I am a bit sickened to have read this:

“Mindfulness begins with leadership,”  said Dr. Leah Weiss, who teaches compassionate leadership at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. told CMO.com. “The best way to introduce mindfulness and/or meditation into a company or organization is to train leaders in mindfulness and compassion. When leadership sets the bar or example, employees will follow suit.”

Each of Dr. Leah Weiss’s three sentences here uses a variation of the word “leader.”  But there is no *leader* in “mindfulness.” There can’t be. It is an individual practice.
