The Mindfulness Edge: How to Rewire Your Brain for Leadership and Personal Excellence Without Adding to Your Schedule

There is a simple practice that can improve nearly every component of leadership and personal excellence and it doesn’t require adding anything to your busy schedule. In The Mindfulness Edge, you’ll discover how a subtle inner shift, called mindfulness, can transform the things you already do every day into opportunities to change your brain in ways that improve both the “hard skills” and “soft skills” of leadership.  A large body of research in neuroscience suggests that with mindfulness training, you can actually “rewire” your brain for leadership and personal excellence, while also becoming happier.

In this book, you’ll learn how mindfulness training helps you:

  • Quickly improve business decisions
  • Become more innovative
  • Develop the emotional intelligence skills essential for creating and sustaining a winning team culture
  • Realize the extraordinary leadership presence that inspires greatness in others
  • Live a happier, more meaningful life
