Summary

Today's leaders are grappling with the pace and complexity of change, the challenge of supporting healthy collaboration and alignment among teams, and the resulting stress and burnout. The practice of mindful leadership may be one of the most important competencies in business today if leaders are to move beyond fear, anxiety, nagging self-doubt, and the feeling of constant overwhelm.

Marc Lesser has taught his proven seven-step method to leaders at Google, Genentech, SAP, Facebook, and dozens of other Fortune 500 companies for over 20 years and has distilled a lifetime of mindfulness and business experience into these chapters. This incredibly practical yet accessible book draws on Marc's experience as a CEO of three companies, as cofounder of the world-renowned Search Inside Yourself (SIY) program within Google, and as a longtime Zen practitioner.

The principles in this book can be applied to leadership at any level, providing listeners with the tools they need to shift awareness, enhance communication, build trust, eliminate fear and self-doubt, and minimize unnecessary workplace drama. Embracing any one of the seven practices alone can be life-changing. When used together, they support a path of well-being, productivity, and positive influence.

Easiest 5 Stars in a Good While

I first heard of this chap on a recent podcast, and instantly loved what he's about.

I'm a guy who loves the corporate world, but also mindfulness/meditation in equal measure. And as a naturally anxious man (and historically a defensive and catastrophic thinker) I've been working on implementing mindfulness practises in my home and work life for the last 18 months or so.

It's an ongoing process and always will be, but this book felt like it was written for me. If this guy started a cult, I'd be first in line.

If you have ANY interest in mindfulness whatsoever, this book is for you.

I finished it a couple of days ago and have just started again. Love it.
