Book excerpt: A guide to using pressure to be a better leader through principles of Zen Buddhism. 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 simply to “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 ten “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. Praise for The Zen Leader “The Zen Leader provides a calm and reassuring voice—telling us what is important about leadership and about ourselves. She distills leadership to its essence, and offers simple, easily understandable tools for any current or aspiring leader to understand, use, and build on his or her own natural gifts.” —David Dotlich, chairman of Pivot and coauthor of Why CEOs Fail; Head, Heart, and Guts; and other books on leadership “The chapter entitled “From Controlling to Connecting” will change how you interact with others, and will enrich your life. You will see the vision of what you want our world to be and help strengthen the business connections we all need.” —Blythe McGarvie, author of Shaking the Globe “Before you can effectively lead others, you must be able to control yourself first. Dr. Whitelaw invites us on a journey of self-discovery using easy-to-follow exercises. By learning to experience for yourself the power of a unified mind and body, you will begin to taste your full potential.” —David Shaner, author of The Seven Arts of Change
