Review

When our mind is settled, we can think clearly, be kind to others, and feel that things are going well. On the contrary, when we are battling with our work and are surrounded by heaps of documents, we see ourselves and others in a very limited way. We all know this; however, every day we prioritize the "things to do" that were previously set up and get bogged down in busy lifestyles. There are many business leaders who cannot free themselves from this kind of situation.
As a neuroscientist, Watkins argues that great leaders develop a good balance of human physiology, subjective emotions, thoughts, and behavior. The author claims that our objective actions are driven by the thoughts originating in our inner self; therefore, sophistication of our inner selves, for example our ego maturity of leaders greatly impacts the performance of their organizations. This rather unique view emphasizes personal maturity as an essential aspect of leadership, as opposed to other leadership books that primarily focus on "actions". Readers will become keenly aware of the need to not only increase their business knowledge and techniques, but to also upgrade their human qualities.
Take your hands off what you are doing for a moment, and reconsider the essence of good leadership and how you cultivate it. By engaging in this state of “being” and following Watkins’ advice, you will see your everyday business from a refreshingly new perspective. (Mizue Sato)
