Top Customer Reviews
The book is filled with tips on how to become more mindful and how to bring mindfulness into your leadership style and your organization. This is a book I will refer back to frequently.
“Eye of the Storm – How Mindful Leaders Can Transform Chaotic Workplaces” is a wake-up call – both for the shift taking place between old paradigm, ego-driven leaders and new paradigm, integrity and values-driven, authentic and mindful leaders; as well as the science, rigor and proven ROI of mindfulness as a way of being that will create an important distinction between leaders of the past who “want to be the best in the world” and those leading the way forward – who want to be “the best for the world”.
Incredibly well researched, as with everything Ray writes, Eye of the Storm provides a detailed overview of the crisis that some leaders and organizations are experiencing where the focus is on ego driven, externally focused goals. Ray outlines the solution –a mindful way of being (vs doing) that nurtures an inside-out approach to being intentional, and ethical in order to create a win-win situation for the leader, their family, their team, the organization and beyond.
Ray reminds us that mindfulness has gone mainstream – once thought “out there”, this scientifically proven way of being may actually save the organizational world from itself.
When most people are in overdrive with data, stimulus, and busyness the practice of mindfulness can be a place where the perspectives change, the emotions calm, and you get through the day as a different person.
