In a world where we know engagement sucks, if we are going to be world class leaders we must have the self accountability to ask ourselves:

Are we really engaged….Are we full present and mindful?

Forget The Mother of Dragons on the episode we go Full Monty with the Mother of Mindfulness!

As a leader you know that engagement is a very real issue. Too often our employees and team members seem distracted. It’s a constant struggle to find new ways to not only keep good people, but to keep them engaged…and a new ping-pong table isn’t going to cut it.

So in a world where almost everyone on the workforce seems to be to a varying degree living on the ADHD spectrum. How can we raise not only the engagement of our teams but also of ourselves?

Well stay tunes because our guest on this episode is: Dr. Ellen Langer. She is a social psychologist and the first female professor to gain tenure at the department of Psychology at Harvard University. She is often referred to as the mother of the Mindful Movement She is an artist, and the author of eleven books, and over the last 35 years she’s written more than two hundred research articles for general and academic readers on mindfulness.
