Highly, highly recommend

Absolutely loved it. Bunting does an excellent job at communicating the book's intention with precision (as stated on the front cover). He shares an in-depth discussion about practicing self-awareness and social awareness in both work and life contexts. Great case studies used to exemplify the assessment, application of a mindful intervention and their outcomes. Also shares research relating to mental and physical health, such as dopamine and serotonin release. This book will probably be in my top three for 2019. Hard to beat. Highly, highly recommend.

Exceptional opportunity for leaders to build emotional intelligence

This book compliments Brené Browns Dare to Lead so well.
There is such a need for leaders to increase their vulnerability and understand that mindfulness is much more than being present while looking into a candle or putting on hand cream.
This book brilliantly explores the benefits of increasing our awareness of self so that we can truly be present for those we lead and bring empathy and compassion to our roles.
Brilliant
