According to the most recent State of the Global Workplace report put out by the Gallup organization, 85% of employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged at work, resulting in $7 trillion in lost productivity each year! This is a crisis. And the solution is mindfulness, both on the part of management and employees. Buddha at Work is part career advice book, part mindfulness workbook, and part Buddhist history lesson. Told through a series of fictionalized conversations with Gautam, Geetanjali Pandit shows you how Buddhist principles guided her through the ups and downs of her C-suite level HR career. From her initial breakthrough of finding her first job to dealing with horrible bosses and selfish colleagues to ultimately being pink-slipped herself, she has seen and been through it all. Each chapter is filled with easy-to-apply mindfulness exercises that will help you bring your best self to the office each day. Inside you'll learn how to: *keep yourself motivated and energized *manage stress and take control of everyday situations *deal with difficult bosses and a negative work environment *channel negativity into a more positive attitude As an added bonus, each chapter also includes a short synopsis of a pivotal moment in the personal development of the Buddha. This book is for anyone looking to advance at their current workplace or for managers looking to motivate disengaged employees.
