Girl gangs reigning terror at Facebook, narcissistic overlords at Google . . . this is the backdrop of Lean Out, which takes readers on the journey of Marissa Orr, a single mom of three trying to find success in her fifteen-year career at the world’s top tech giants. Orr delivers an ambitious attempt to answer the critical question: What have we gotten wrong about women at work?  “This book is a must-read for insights on the impact that reversing systemic gender biases can have on creating more diverse, healthier workplaces for both women and men.” --Joanne Harrell, Senior Director, USA Citizenship, Microsoft  “This book will make you think differently about what it will take for women to succeed at the highest levels in American business.” --Rishad Tobaccowala, Chief Growth Officer, Publicis Groupe Lean Out offers a new and refreshingly candid perspective on what it’s really like for today’s corporate underdogs. Based on both in-depth research and personal experiences, Orr punctures a gaping hole in today’s feminist rhetoric and sews it back up with compelling new arguments for the reasons more women don’t make it to the top and how companies can better incentivize women by actually listening to what they have to say and by rewarding the traits that make them successful.  In Lean Out, Orr uncovers: Why our pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well-being. The need to redefine success and change the way corporations choose their leaders. The way most career advice books targeting professional women seek to change their behavior rather than the system. Why modern feminism has failed to make any progress on its goals for equality. More than fifty years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act, the wage gap still hovers at 80 percent, and only 5 percent of CEOs in the Fortune 500 are women. Today, rising up the ranks in many companies still often means cutthroat, win-at-all-costs tactics, where being the loudest voice in the room is more important than being the person with the best ideas for moving the company forward. Not surprisingly, most women don’t want to play this game.  An everyday working woman with a sardonic sense of humor, Orr is an endearing antihero who captures the voice for a new generation of women at work. Lean Out presents a revolutionary path forward, to change the life trajectories of women in the corporate world and beyond.

Mindfulness for All

We are Homo Sapiens Sapiens - the species that is aware and knows that it is aware. But so far, we have yet to live our way into this most important attribute of our humanity. This failure is the root cause of our suffering and malaise. In Mindfulness for All, Jon Kabat-Zinn illuminates how mindfulness as a meditation practice and as a way of being can help us live our way into our species' name and thereby change our world for the better - just as mindfulness has been shown to positively affect our health and wellbeing as individuals. He explains how democracy and social justice can thrive when we take responsibility for our own minds and actions and recognize our deep connections with others who may have strikingly different perspectives and narratives. Mindfulness is an essential catalyst for personal and global healing and transformation, and for principled, ethical, and embodied action in tumultuous times. When it comes down to it, what unfolds in the future depends on how you, we, all of us are in this present moment. Therein lies true wisdom and freedom. Originally published in 2005 as part of a larger book titled Coming to Our Senses, Mindfulness for All features a new foreword by the author, as well as compelling updates throughout the text, and is a 'treasure trove of contemporary wisdom' (Publishers Weekly) from a pioneer of the worldwide mindfulness movement. jonkabat-zinn.com [Twitter logo] @jonkabatzinn [Facebook logo] Facebook.com/kabatzinn Cover design by Joanne O'Neill
