Product description

Review

"An excellent how-to with exercises and coaching on presence, awareness, and focus." -- Associations Now

"lays out succinctly and in clear language a three-part approach to leadership…Books like this should be required reading in business schools everywhere." -- Mindful magazine

Advance Praise for The Mind of the Leader:

Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company--
"
The Mind of the Leader has captured some of the essentials of leadership in the twenty-first century: being mindful, selfless, and compassionate. With these, we are better able to engage our people and we bring more value to our clients."

Kathleen Hogan, Chief People Officer, Microsoft--
"A forward and practical guide for companies wanting to evolve their leadership capabilities to engage both the minds and the hearts of today's workforce."

Francine Katsoudas, SVP and Chief People Officer, Cisco--
"How leaders communicate, engage, and show up to their teams has never been more important. Creating a world-class team and environment where people can do their best work is the number-one job of a leader, and more than ever leaders are being asked to elevate team performance through innovative leadership.
The Mind of the Leader shares important insights and perspectives and lays a path for how you make this happen."

Loren I. Shuster, Chief People Officer, the LEGO Group--
"
The Mind of the Leader goes beyond the hyperbole associated with mindfulness today and provides real-world examples from leading executives that can not only provide inspiration to the reader but outline a path toward the cultivation of such critical leadership qualities as selflessness and compassion. Creating the context for others to find meaning, purpose, and a sense of connectedness has become the hallmark of a productive and engaged organization."

Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO, Thrive Global--
"In
The Mind of the Leader, Hougaard and Carter draw on years of research to show that the traditional, top-down style of leadership doesn't work anymore. The successful leaders of the future will be human-centered, focused as much on growth and the bottom line as on creating a flourishing and sustainable culture. This book is a manual of success for leaders in any industry."
