Based on her popular course at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, corporate leadership consultant and professor Leah Weiss offers a clear, thoughtful guide that helps you understand how mindfulness can assist you in finding purpose, reflecting on failure and bettering your work life. Mindfulness lets you recognize when your attention strays and allows you to guide it back with intention. It helps you develop soft skills such as compassion and teamwork. Mindfulness training enables employees and leaders to support one another, challenge the status quo, embrace “radical transparency” and grant the “whole self” space at work.
