The complexity and relentless pace of our world places exceptional demands on leaders today. They work incredibly hard and yet feel that they are not meeting their own expectations of excellence. They feel disconnected from their own values and overburdened. By the thousands, they seek out books on leadership skills, time management, and “getting things done,” but the techniques these volumes offer, useful as they are, don't often don't speak to the leader's fundamental sense that something is missing. Janice Marturano, a senior executive with decades of experience in Fortune 500 corporations, explains how Mindful Leadership training integrates the practice of mindfulness-meditation and self-awareness-with the practical tools of management, enabling leaders to bring a wider range of their capacities to the challenges at hand. We already know from scientific research that mindfulness practices enhance mental health and improve clarity and focus. FINDING THE SPACE shows how this training has specific value for leaders. This is not a new “leadership system” to add to the burden of already overworked people. It brings the concepts of mindfulness into the everyday life of anyone in a leadership role, through specific exercises that address practical issues-the calendar, schedule, phone usage, meetings, to-do list, and strategic planning, as well as interpersonal challenges such as listening and working with difficult colleagues. Leaders who have experienced mindfulness training report that it provides a “transformative experience” with significant improvements in innovation, self-awareness, listening, and making better decisions. In FINDING THE SPACE TO LEAD, Marturano masterfully lays out her proven techniques for promoting mindfulness in the busy executive's working life.

The development of leadership within healthcare organisations is vital. Never has it been so important that aspiring leaders are equipped with the theoretical and practical-know-how to drive forward health reform and ensure quality, particularly in an industry where leadership is so often misunderstood. In this timely and exciting new book, Christopher Johns addresses the most vital aspects of health care development and education, and reveals the tensions of becoming a leader within health care organizations. Being able to understand and work towards resolving this tension is essential in becoming an effective leader. Developed from the narratives of over 80 aspiring-leaders, Mindful Leadership draws upon a rich source of data and insights to support the re-direction of leadership within NHS organizations across various disciplines. Leadership is liberating. Everyone should aim to be a leader at every level of the organization.

A timely, must-have guide to understanding and overcoming bias in the workplace, from the experts at FranklinCovey. Unconscious bias affects everyone. It can look like the disappointment of an HR professional when a candidate for a new position asks about maternity leave. It can look like preferring the application of a red brick university graduate over one from a state school. It can look like assuming a man is more entitled to speak in a meeting than his female junior colleague. Ideal for every manager who wants to understand and move past their own preconceived ideas, Unconscious Bias explains that bias is the result of mental shortcuts, our likes and dislikes, and is a natural part of the human condition. And what we assume about each other and how we interact with one another has vast effects on our organisational success - especially in the workplace. Teaching you how to overcome unconscious bias, this book provides more than thirty unique tools, such as a prep worksheet and a list of ways to reframe your unconscious thoughts. According to the experts at FranklinCovey, your workplace can achieve its highest performance rate once you start to overcome your biases and allow your employees to be whole people. By recognising bias, emphasising empathy and curiosity, and making true understanding a priority in the workplace, we can unlock the potential of every person we encounter.

How to Be Present in an Absent World is about cultivating self-awareness that empowers you to take ownership of your life in every area of influence--church, family, the marketplace, and your relationships. Daniel Montgomery, Eboni Webb, and Kenny Silva guide you through a series of five questions that uncover the five realities of life and leadership--Time (When?), Place (Where?), Body (Who?), Social System (What?), and Story (Why?). When we better understand ourselves we are able to untangle the knotted strands of human personality and move from reflection to a clear call to action. Montgomery, Webb, and Silva explore the nature of Time, Place, Body, Social System, and Story, equipping you with the kind of self-understanding that allows you to overcome obstacles that were previously discouraging and insurmountable. Through radical self-understanding, psychological obstacles are explained, external obstacles are contextualized, and tactics align to manifest one's truest, best, most beautiful life.
