The sad reality of our stimulus-saturated world today is that, with so much coming at us, we never seem to have enough time. For anything.
We and our organizations pay a price. We are no longer in the moment. As a result, we lose touch with what’s really going on, we fail to think ahead deeply, and we lose the passion that makes a business great.
This book is intended to change that.
The premise is disarmingly simple: The leaders who win are those who understand what it means to be fully present — physically, mentally, and emotionally — in the day-to-day of their business.
This book takes you inside the working relationship of a senior operations executive and his leadership coach to show how any committed leader can get back in touch with the mind, body, and heart of their organization and discover the real way to win.
