Working with Mindfulness: Mindfulness for Executives

Book Description

Mindfulness for Executives with Jeremy Hunter, PhD, Assistant Professor of Practice at The Peter F. Drucker School of Management. Dr. Hunter created The Executive Mind, a series of executive education courses that seek to clarify and redefine how attention-training practices and cultivating quality of mind can enhance productivity and performance. Dr. Hunter shares his unique experience of offering mindfulness methods to executives, and highlights why mindfulness is the necessary and fundamental skill for today’s knowledge worker environment. He explores questions like: How are we stuck in an old framework of productivity that inhibits real innovation? What about today’s working environment makes mindfulness necessary? What new vocabulary and methodology do we need to develop to meet our changing circumstances? Is productivity what we should really care about anyway?
