‘Leadership development programs are often introduced during times of organisational change.’ True but without anchoring in mindfulness, one can observe again and again how these programs become watered down to the point where they can no longer be sustained. Back where they started! Dr King’s book highlights a slow but certain global move to changing the way we work with people and the way people work within organisations. Individual mindfulness can make a difference in the workplace even if only a very few practice it. The impact on others is substantial with a reduction of stress and a refusal to allow stress to grow unreasonably. If this mindfulness starts with leaders, the filter down signals can change the workplace dramatically. Imagine the change in interaction between global leaders! We need this! Fascinating and informative book. Thank you Dr King
This is an insightful look at leadership in our dynamic and disruptive times. The Author has fused eastern philosophies and principles with corporate demands to provide both theory and practical steps to develop leadership.
I have been interested in mindfulness as a personal pursuit and have practiced it for many years to cope with the stress of being a small business operator. But I have never before realised where it fitted into my business. I think I have wasted a lot of money on training for my staff.
Now I can see where the opportunity is for the future. It's a game changing idea and it lets me bring my personal together with my business goals.
Disruption is the way of industry from policy change to keeping up with constant change this is an excellent read on mindfulness and practices that can assist in the unknown environment we all face. I will be using many of the practices in my day to day work. Enjoyed the read
