Leaders today face nearly impossible tasks. Forced to do more with less, expand globally, innovate quickly, inspire broadly and--oh, yes--balance work and family. How can one manage all this pressure?

The Zen Leader does not encourage you to just "be peaceful." Neither does it suggest you work harder, faster, or ignore the pressure. Quite the opposite: it's about using the pressure to propel "flips" in consciousness that create transformational leaders, leaders who create the future with joy and enthusiasm, rather than drive themselves and their people to exhaustion.

The Zen Leader guides you through 10 "flips" that take you from barely managing to mastering change--not by doing more, zoning out, or pretending you have all the answers. Chapter by chapter, You'll learn how to make the "flips" that reframe your life, your leadership, and your world. Discover how you can get out of your own way and realize The Zen Leader in you.

About the Author:

Dr. Ginny Whitelaw is both a leadership expert and a roshi (Zen master) in the Chozen-ji line of Rinzai Zen. Cofounder of Focus Leadership, she has taught and coached in countless programs to Global 1000 leaders, in part through her affiliation with Oliver Wyman Leadership Development and Columbia University's Senior Executive Program. Formerly Deputy Manager for integrating NASA's Space Station Program, she has a PhD in biophysics as well as a 5th degree black belt in Aikido.

Review:

"The Zen Leader is an important and very helpful book in the science and art of leadership. Based on everything from Zen to Integral Philosophy, it outlines 10 fundamental 'shifts' or 'flips' that can move you from small mind to Big Mind, bringing an expanding capacity of leadership with each one. Give it a try and see for yourself!"
--Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision

"A terrific contribution filled with original insights and solutions."
--Jim Loehr, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Power of Full Engagement

"As most leaders know, the best answers are often found in how one frames the question. In this remarkable book, Dr. Ginny Whitelaw sharpens the reader's abilities to reframe everything. Offering a genuinely innovative amalgamation of Eastern thought and the world of work, Dr. Whitelaw provides the reader grounding in practical leadership application, just as she introduces the next stretching insight. This book is a gift that keeps on giving."
--Ed Bernard, vice chairman, T. Rowe Price Group

"This book is an incredible journey through soul-searching ideas, [providing] a laser-focus on critical leadership issues, and practical exercises that embed the understanding and ability to make the flip at our very core. Fascinating!"
--Virginia McLaughlin, Oliver Wyman Leadership Development
