Mindfulness, an internal psychological practice that can be used in interactions with the world, helps individuals to focus attention away from anxiety laden thought. The concept, which was focused primarily for its clinical utility, is now being increasingly used in the organizational scenario. Locus of Control is the extent to which people believe that they (internal locus of control) or external factors, such as powerful others (external locus of control) and chance are in control of the events that influences their lives. The present study established that mindfulness is a predictor of internal locus of control. This finding brings to light the need to inculcate mindfulness among key employees if organizations are to scale greater heights in the current competitive environment.
