Having a greater sense of self-awareness is an essential component of emotional intelligence and effective leadership.
Empathetic leadership allows us to understand the needs of others and be cognizant of their emotions and overall wellbeing.
The quality of being present allows leaders to be more in the moment and available to themselves and their employees.
Leaders navigate a fine balance between confidence and humility. Understanding the ego and how it affects leadership is crucial for leading from a place of poise and presence.
As a speaker and a woman in the world, Dr. Thulani DeMarsay is the embodiment of open attention, sensitivity, compassion, and courage in the face of grief, crisis and chaos. Within the pages of this book, her writer's voice imparts clarity, calm and strength. She offers both a "hopeful path" to contemplative leadership as a "continuous, unbounded way of life," and an immediate and intimate invitation to readers to join her on the page, sharing writing space in response to thoughtful, well-guided exercises. A slender, spacious volume well worth engaging.
I find Dr. DeMarsay’s work to be a most welcoming invitation to be more than our positions, roles, or skill sets, more than our goals and achievement. It is an invitation to really be present which allows for a different level of caring and commitment to wellbeing in the workplace.
