I just heard ‘Chogyam Trungpa’ referenced at Authors@Google series! How can mindfulness-based training help us be better businesspeople and leaders—not to mention, people?

PS: if mindfulness is at issue, I’d love to see Google forgo the ubiquitous plastic bottle in favor of a little sustainable elegance—the good ol’fashioned glass of water or mug.

More info re the above via Google:

Michael Carroll visits Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss his book “The Mindful Leader: Ten Principles for Bringing Out the Best in Ourselves and Others.” This event took place on October 17, 2008, as part of the Authors@Google series.

A new generation of business leaders is turning to mindfulness as a cutting-edge leadership tool. Research suggests that the practice of mindfulness–a technique for learning to live in the present moment–can help individuals gain clarity, reduce stress, optimize performance, and develop a greater sense of well-being. 

Michael Carroll, corporate executive, Buddhist teacher and author of The Mindful Leader will give mindfulness meditation instruction and discuss how such mind training can cultivate natural leadership talents like courage, confidence and poise. We will explore how mindfulness, beyond mere pleasantry, is how we can learn to adopt a realistic and inspiring approach toward workplace leadership.
