Sam Liebowitz, will discuss all types of topics to help you raise your awareness.
[EPISODE] Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader
This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam welcomes CEO, Author, and Mindfulness Expert, Marc Lesser.
Marc has been many things over the years — a dishwasher, baker, a start-up entrepreneur, and a CEO.
Blending his leadership experience running a Zen monastery kitchen, leading mindfulness trainings for Google engineers, and starting and leading the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, Marc combines the hard-earned wisdom of a compassionate mindfulness teacher with the insights of an experienced business leader.
In recent years, mindfulness has exploded in popularity, but an individual’s interest in mindfulness does not necessarily translate into them becoming a mindful leader. Understanding mindfulness can be challenging; even more difficult is embodying and regularly practicing it in everyday life.
Of course, ancient contemplative practices weren’t developed in order to improve business. They are meant to shift our consciousness and way of being in the world. Yet these practices are essential to mindful leadership and to creating the type of supportive organizational culture that allows business and people to thrive.
Grounded in the depth and simplicity of his experience of leading a Zen monastery kitchen, Marc Lesser unpacks the richness of these practices and makes them accessible to our daily life.
Marc and Sam will be discussing his new book, Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader: Lessons from Google and a Zen Monastery Kitchen.
