EPISODE 351: Mindful Leadership & Emotional Intelligence

Have you ever driven from your house to the office and were unable to remember anything about the drive? Have you lost track of days and even weeks when stress and frustration turned your brain to mush?

What would your work and your life look like if you knew how to stay focused yet flexible; if you got more of the right things done; if you were helping to create a more peaceful world at the same time? These questions are posed by mindfulness trainer, Marc Lesser, my guest on this week’s podcast.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why asking and listening are rare and yet so valuable
  • Why solo meditation practice is miserable for most people
  • How corporate culture can dramatically change when people are present, emotionally open, and connected
