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

by Matt Tenney

Published by Wiley


The one habit that can improve almost every leadership skill

There is a simple practice that can improve nearly every component of leadership 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 things that you already do every day into opportunities to become a better leader. Author Matt Tenney has trained leaders around the world in the practice of mindfulness. In this book, he partners with neuroscientist Tim Gard, PhD, to offer step-by-step, practical guidance for quickly and seamlessly integrating mindfulness training into your daily life -- rewiring your brain in ways that improve both the ‘hard' and 'soft' skills of leadership.

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

  • Quickly improve business acumen and your impact on the bottom line
  • Become more innovative and attract/retain innovative team members
  • Develop the emotional intelligence essential for creating and sustaining a winning culture
  • Realize the extraordinary leadership presence that inspires greatness in others

The authors make a compelling case for why mindfulness training may be the 'ultimate success habit.' In addition to helping you improve the most essential elements of highly effective leadership, mindfulness training can help you discover unconditional happiness and realize incredible meaning -- professionally and personally.
