"If I speak in the tongues ... but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal."  ie, without love, I'm full of clap.

... as long as business leaders practice "true" mindfulness, it does not matter if the original intention is triggered by wanting to be more effective at work or to make bigger profits. That is because the practice will fundamentally change their perspective on life as it naturally opens hearts to greater compassion and develops the desire to end the suffering of others.

You can hang it on wall, live collecting money and die unknowingly the other beautiful side of your life and releasing your spirit totally unhappy, because it came to this life to learn more, but it will come back learning nothing, just empty business experience and  fighting to earn more and more money. This is the cause of many sickness, particularly hearth disease and the best years to die is about 40 - 50.. good luck.
