Donald (management and research, Univ. of Sydney Business Sch.; coauthor, Contemporary Issues in Work and Organisations) and mindfulness expert Hassed (founding director of education, Monash Ctr. for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies; coauthor, The Mindful Home) present their guide to help leaders cut through the noise in today’s hyper-connected world of information overload. Their four main principles are to remain transparent about the primary purpose of a business; to be conscious about investing one’s attention and energy; to lead people with one’s full attention; and to manage personal priorities and energy in one’s own private life. The authors assert that authenticity, awareness, openness, and balance are pivotal for success. To show what works, they incorporate their own consulting experiences.
VERDICT Practical and evidence-based, this lofty effort will support any leader through today’s data dump. More valuable as a handy self-assessment or as a gap filler in leadership collections.
