Mindful Leadership at Work: The Vision of Marc Lesser, Co-founder of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute
How can we train the business world to practice mindful leadership? Seven years ago, executive coach and Zen teacher Marc Lesser teamed up with a Google engineer and Stanford neuroscientist to take on this challenging proposition for Google. They developed a ground-breaking curriculum to help thousands of employees at Google be more resilient, adaptive and happier leaders. The team eventually brought this curriculum to offices worldwide and developed the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) to support their work and mission. SIYLI is committed to the radical idea that work can not only be fun, enjoyable and a place to get things done, but also a place that creates the conditions for world peace. Join Host Kate Ebner and SIYLI co-founder and CEO Marc Lesser, author of Know Yourself, Forget Yourself, to learn the Google method of creating better leaders and inspiring a more peaceful world.
Marc Lesser is the CEO, co-founder and board member of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute and author of Know Yourself, Forget Yourself. Marc is a long term Zen student and teacher and has also authored Less: Accomplishing More By Doing Less, and Z.B.A. Zen of Business Administration; How Zen Practice Can Transform Your Work and Your Life. Marc is the founder and former CEO of Brush Dance, a publisher of greeting cards, calendars and gift items, with spiritual themes and artwork. He spent 15 years taking Brush Dance from an idea in his garage to a multi-million dollar publishing company, with distribution throughout the U.S. and the world. He facilitates retreats for CEO’s, business leaders, and management teams. Marc was a resident of the San Francisco Zen Center for 10 years. He received his M.B.A. from New York University and his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Rutgers University. He is currently a board member of the Social Venture Network.
