Big business often seems the reserve of ruthless money-grubbers desperately looking for a way to make their next buck. But a quiet revolution is reshaping the corporate world, as the world's most dynamic entrepreneurs and businesspeople are starting to change how a successful business is run. A new breed of mindful managers are using meditation, yoga and other Zen techniques to focus on feeling good while making money - and using the money to do good too. Materialism is out and mindfulness is in. Featuring insights from high-level managers at Fortune 500 companies through to Google employees and the Dalai Lama himself, Mindful Work is an inspirational guide to mindfulness based in the realities of running a successful business. Blending timeless insights and modern-day management theory, it charts the revolution sweeping through the world's fastest-growing companies and offers a programme for changing the way we work - a change that will make us not just wealthier, but healthier and happier too.aThe use of mindful practicesa: Bill George, aDeveloping Mindful Leaders for the CSuite, a Harvard Business Review Blog Network, March 10, 2014, ... 2 Bill Ford, Jack Kornfield, a YouTube.com, February 24, 2013, https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=9W0Wy806t4aamp;feature=kp. ... 244 aLeadership is not an affair of the heada: James M.
