As personal and professional boundary fades and change becomes the norm in business, leaders must incorporate mindfulness in the way they lead to sustainably meet the increasingly complex leadership challenges.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
In its recent release of A Practical Guide to Authentic Leadership: A 60-Day Journey that Unlocks the True Leader in You, Hsiang-Yi Lin, the author and CEO of MKMB, introduces a step-by-step practical guide that helps overwhelmed, overstretched achievers find personal fulfillment and professional sustainability – while gaining a leadership edge.
As pointed out in the Mindfulness Revolution article featured in the February issue of TIMES magazine, the scientific linkage between mindfulness and personal effectiveness is well tested. A $4 billion industry and growing, the topic of mindfulness is receiving increasing attention as people are reaching a boiling point and seeking a sustainable solution to help them navigate today’s ever-changing, increasingly complex world. Unlike others in its genre, A Practical Guide to Authentic Leadership takes a perspective of integration and alignment rather than of compartmentalization and of sustainability rather than of alleviation. It delivers unique leadership frameworks to meet tangible, day-to-day leadership challenges. In an easy-to-follow and digestible fashion, the book helps readers build “leadership muscles” and offers targeted and actionable tips to the most common and pressing leadership pain points, such as:
- Leading Change
- Managing Self in Difficult Times
- Building a Shared Vision
- Breaking Down Myopic Thinking and Organizational Silos
- Aligning Teams
- Cultivating a Learning Culture
The author, a Harvard Business School graduate, brings her 12+ years of corporate leadership experience and coaching expertise to help leaders lead in a more sustainable way. She states, “As personal and professional boundary fades and change becomes the norm in business, leaders must incorporate mindfulness in the way they lead to sustainably meet the increasingly complex leadership challenges.”
By leveraging readers’ everyday leadership challenges as learning opportunities, the author helps readers:
- Tap into their inner resourcefulness
- Develop awareness around their blinders and about their biases
- Build personal adaptation and inter-organizational skills, and
- Gain personal ease and freedom
