Organizational mindfulness and mindful organizing: A reconciliation and path forward

Abstract

Ray, Baker, and Plowman's (2011) study of organizational mindfulness highlights latent tensions in the mindfulness literature and promising avenues for future research. Their study provides a springboard for reconciling the literature by differentiating organizational mindfulness from mindful organizing, establishing where organizational mindfulness and mindful organizing are most important, and clarifying how and when each construct can be most fruitfully deployed in research and practice. Clearer theorizing leads to a set of research questions that seek to integrate multiple conceptions of individual and organizational mindfulness, establish their individual and organizational antecedents, explore the consequences for individuals and organizations, and in so doing, further increase the relevance of organizational mindfulness for business schools.
