The conditioning begins early in our lives. Great achievements will bring lasting happiness and fulfillment; great achievements form the bedrock of stable self-esteem and strong character; great achievements will become the foundation for a successful life. If these well-intentioned promises are true, why does winning never seem to be enough? In The Only Way to Win, Jim Loehr draws upon two decades of work with Fortune 500 executives; world-class athletes such as Monica Seles, Dan Jansen, and Eric Lindros; and other high achievers at the Human Performance Institute (HPI) to reveal surprising insights about achievement motivation. Specifically, Loehr finds that the blind pursuit of external achievement often results in emptiness, addiction, and, ironically, poor performance. It’s not really about what you achieve, he argues, it’s about who you become as a consequence of the chase. From the bestselling author of On Form, comes a compelling, practical, and hopeful read filled with relatable stories and useful exercises. The Only Way to Win will serve as a powerful wake-up call for business leaders, employees, teachers, and coaches. It will also provide inspiration for readers looking to perform better, achieve more, and change both their own lives and those of the people they influence.

“I have long thought that what the Buddha taught can be seen as a highly developed science of mind which, if made more accessible to a lay audience, could benefit many people. I believe that Dr. Weiss’s book, in combining such insights with science and good business practice, offers an effective mindfulness based program that many will find helpful.” --His Holiness, the Dalai Lama A practical guide to bringing our whole selves to our professional work, based on the author’s overwhelmingly popular course at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. In today’s workplace, the traditional boundaries between "work" and "personal" are neither realistic nor relevant. From millennials seeking employment in the sharing economy to Gen Xers telecommuting to Baby Boomers creating a meaningful second act, the line that separates who we are from the work we do is blurrier than ever. The truth is, we don’t show up for our jobs as a portion of ourselves—by necessity, we bring both our hearts and our minds to everything we do. In How We Work, mindfulness expert and creator of the perennially-waitlisted Stanford Business School course "Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion" Dr. Leah Weiss explains why this false dichotomy can be destructive to both our mental health and our professional success. The bad news, says Weiss, is that nothing provides more opportunities for negative emotions—anxiety, anger, envy, fear, and paranoia, to name a few—than the dynamics of the workplace. But the good news is that these feelings matter. How we feel at and about work matters—to ourselves, to the quality of our work, and ultimately to the success of the organizations for which we work. The path to productivity and success, says Weiss, is not to change jobs, to compartmentalize our feelings, or to create a false "professional" identity—but rather to listen to the wisdom our feelings offer. Using mindfulness techniques, we can learn how to attend to difficult feelings without becoming subsumed by them; we can develop an awareness of our bigger picture goals that orients us and allows us to see purpose in even the most menial tasks. In How We Work, Weiss offers a set of practical, evidence-based strategies for practicing mindfulness in the real world, showing readers not just how to survive another day, but how to use ancient wisdom traditions to sharpen their abilities, enhance their leadership and interpersonal skills, and improve their satisfaction.

It began with a letter Scott wrote to the CEO of his company. Amidst the economic turmoil brought on by the 2008 financial crisis, senior management solicited feedback from employees on ways to improve the operations of the firm going forward. The message resonated with Scott. He sensed a different way of doing things—that by examining company values and focusing on teamwork, the firm could achieve economic profit and create a workforce of engaged, fulfilled team members. Completing this exercise had profound meaning for him. Scott began to see the power of identifying core values, establishing team culture, and developing an action plan for success. The letter turned into a blueprint for creating a new career and a life of purpose. In an enlightening account of Scott’s journey of introspection and inspiration, he provides a how-to guide for transforming any area of life and delivers one profound message: living a life of fulfillment is predicated on honoring your passion and purpose and contributing meaningfully to others around you. In this moment of economic rebirth and global self-examination, there has never been a better time to follow your heart and claim ownership for your true identity. We—the world and individuals—cannot afford to ignore those internal impulses that are telling each of us to believe in ourselves and honor what we are most passionate about creating and contributing in our lives. The stakes—political, economic, social, and spiritual—are just too high not to. Join Scott as he teaches you: How to find your passion and turn it into a life of meaning What the difference is between a career and a calling What your “Trajectory of Purpose” is and how defining it now will improve your life forever How to start your own company from scratch and establish values of lasting success How to create a “Mindset of Opportunity” and see the world as a team effort How to live a life of self-leadership that allows you to call the shots and be the architect of your own life The time—as always—is now!
