The Art of Zen Leadership
Leader Zen authored by Jess Stuart, an experienced leadership coach, HR professional, and international keynote speaker, is a must-read for those seeking to unlock their potential around self-mastery and mental fitness for calm and conscious leadership. The book addresses the challenges of the post-pandemic era, which has necessitated a new ilk of leadership that focuses on evolution and adaptability. The book offers strategies for overcoming the talent shortage, hybrid working, employee engagement and turnover, empathy fatigue, change weariness, and impacts on staff morale, which have contributed to a rise in burnout as a workplace phenomenon. The book aims to develop calmness, self-mastery, mental fitness, and awareness as core leadership skills, empowering leaders to adapt to change, increase focus and concentration, and in turn become fearless but wise, compassionate, and respected.
