Matthew Tenney and Tim Gard join us to speak about their new book, The Mindfulness Edge: How to Rewire Your Brain for Leadership and Personal Excellence Without Adding to Your Schedule.
We’ve heard a lot lately about mindfulness in the corporate world, about how it helps employees deal with the inevitable stress that may be inherent to their jobs, as well as helping leaders grow their own value to their profession. But doing so without adding mindfulness as just another technique, that requires the skilled insight and guidance of competent mindfulness teachers living in the business world.
Matt Tenney is the author of The Mindfulness Edge: How to Rewire Your Brain for Leadership and Personal Excellence Without Adding to Your Schedule and Serve to Be Great: Leadership Lessons from a Prison, a Monastery, and a Boardroom. Through keynote speeches and training programs, he works to develop highly effective leaders who achieve extraordinary, long-term business outcomes – and live more fulfilling lives – as a result of realizing high levels of self-mastery and more effectively serving and inspiring greatness in the people around them. Matt’s clients include Wells Fargo, Marriott, Keller Williams, The Four Seasons, and many other companies, associations, and universities.
