Finding The Space To Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership

In 2000, Janice Marturano a Fortune 200 senior executive, was tackling a major acquisition in a multi-billion dollar deal, juggling an overwhelming workload, an active family life, and at the same time was experiencing personal grief with the death of her parents. Overworked and overextended, Marturano was mentally, physically and emotionally drained. Prodded by a friend to take some time off, she attended a meditation retreat. What she learned there would change the course of her career and her life.
Janice shares the lessons in her new book, Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership, on how incorporating mindfulness principles in her daily life made her feel more focused at work and fully present at home.
Mindfulness made such a positive impact in Janice's life and work, she begun sharing her training with fellow executives who rapidly saw its benefits and spread it through the company and beyond. Years of neuroscience research have shown the efficacy of mindfulness training, and Marturano’s own surveys of executives have proved its practical value.
Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership is specifically geared to practicing mindful leadership in the workplace. This guide will help you better manage your calendars, meetings, to-do lists, strategic planning, and the interpersonal challenges of the workplace by offering specific exercises to face real-world situations in a mindful way. Whether you are leading a company, a team, a class, or a family this conversation will help you figure out how you can lead your lives with excellence.
You will learn about the four attributes of a mindful leader:
  • Clarity
  • Focus
  • Creativity
  • Compassion
