Gretchen Steidle knows first-hand the personal transformation that mindfulness practice can bring. BUt she doesn't believe that transformation stops at personal wellbeing. IN Leading from Within, Steidle describes the ways that personal investment in self-awareness shapes leaders who are able to inspire change in others, build stronger relationships, and design innovative and more sustainable solutions. STeidle argues that both personal and societal transformation are essential for a just society, and with this book she offers a roadmap for integrating mindfulness into every aspect of social change. COnventional methods attempt to compel people to change through incentives or punitive measures. COnscious social change calls for leading with a deeper human understanding of change and compassion for the needs and perspectives of all stakeholders.
