Leah Weiss, PhD, gives a practical talk on bringing our whole selves to our professional work, based on her overwhelmingly popular course at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and her new book, How We Work.
Using mindfulness techniques and stressing the importance of fully engaging our hearts and minds at work, Dr. Weiss shows how to attend to difficult feelings without becoming subsumed by them; how to develop awareness of our bigger picture goals that orients us and allows us to see purpose in the most menial tasks. She offers a set of practical, evidence-based strategies for practicing mindfulness in the real world, revealing how not to merely survive another day, but how to use ancient wisdom traditions to sharpen your abilities, enhance your leadership and interpersonal skills, and improve your satisfaction.
