There are lots of books that address how we should take care of ourselves, find calm, and enjoy happiness in a hectic work world. But few of those books apply the lessons of Buddhist thinking as resolution and guidance tools. These questions, though found in the modern day, are actually the core of all Buddha’s teachings: impermanence, suffering, and the quest for happiness (freedom from suffering). This makes Buddha the kind of consultant or coach we need today in the workplace. Following in the tradition of the authors' first best seller, this work goes on to explore and answer 101 dilemmas that we encounter at work, with topics that include time management, goal-setting, conflict, job dissatisfaction, unemployment, and even workplace trysts. The authors emphasize practical learning and coping, not esoteric insights or metaphysics, applying concrete solutions from Buddhist teachings to real problems in easily digestible chunks. 1.

Despite the countless books written on the subject of managing millennials (most often authored by non-millennials), no one has until now diagnosed the real issue of generational differences in the workplace: generations do not define themselves, their environment defines them. The four main traits - entitled, lazy, disrespectful, and disloyal - are misguided assumptions made about millennials that Kadakia argues are actually positive attributes that every business and industry should internalize. The four "faults" are in fact four qualities of the evolved workplace and worker. Millennials are simply reflecting the fast-changing environment around them. Therefore, understanding millennials is not just about managing a generation, it is about seeing the future of business as changing at an exponential rate and making the necessary adjustments to remain vital and competitive. Kadakia's mindset shift details the ways in which business can evolve their thinking to include technological advances as well as supporting the technological thinker, otherwise known as the Millennial. This book is not only a guide to managing millennials, but can also influence the development of business as a whole. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julie Eickhoff.

Mika Brzezinski, Morning Joe co-host and New York Times best-selling author of Knowing Your Value, has built a career on inspiring women to assess and then obtain their true value in the workplace. In her books and in her conferences, Mika gives women the tools necessary to advocate for themselves and their financial futures. But that is only the first step; once you know your value, you need to grow it - both professionally and personally. Drawing on deeply revealing conversations with powerful and dynamic women, input from researchers and relationship experts, and her own wealth of experience, Mika helps women pinpoint their individual definition of success. She advises her listeners to define the "professional value" that encompasses their worth in the workplace, and the "inner value" made up of their core beliefs and goals. Women can stop feeling overwhelmed, overscheduled, frantic, and forever guilty - but only if they choose their objectives confidently and unapologetically, and focus their efforts accordingly. Mika encourages women to stop seeking the unobtainable "work-life balance", and instead pursue a life of honesty and authenticity, where career and home life combine rather than collide. 1.

New York Times reporter reveals what business leaders around the country are already discovering: Meditation may be the key to fostering a happier, more productive workplace. For the past few years, mindfulness has begun to transform the American workplace. Many of our largest companies, such as General Mills, Ford, Target, and Google, have built extensive programs to foster mindful practices among their workers. Mindful Work is the first audiobook to explain how all sorts of businesses and any kind of worker can benefit from meditation, yoga, and other mindful techniques. As a business reporter for the New York Times who has also practiced meditation for two decades, David Gelles is uniquely qualified to chart the growing nexus between these two realms. As he proves, mindfulness lowers stress, increases mental focus, and alleviates depression among workers. He also offers real-world examples of how mindfulness has benefited companies that have adopted it--from the millions of dollars Aetna has saved in health-care costs to the ways Patagonia has combined leadership in its market with a pervasively mindful outlook. Gelles's revelatory audiobook picks up where best sellers like Thrive and 10% Happier leave off by detailing how mindfulness works in and for the companies that adopt it, revealing the profound impact mindfulness can have on the world of work. Mindful Work goes beyond other books on the subject by providing evidence for the practical benefits of mindfulness and showing listeners how to become more mindful themselves. 1. Language: English.
