How We Work


“On our first day of class, I tell my students, “We’re going to learn how to change our relationship with our existing habits of thinking at and about work, and find freedom in the new possibilities that will emerge as a result.” By the end of our time together, my students (most of them, anyway) say that the course profoundly changed the way they understood leadership—of companies perhaps, of people probably, and certainly of their own lives.”


SUMMARY: This book brings ancient mindfulness wisdom to the modern working world in an insightful and relevant way. The author, Dr. Leah Weiss, is a mindfulness guru who is well respected for her popular, waitlisted Stanford Business School course "Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion"
