The more centered, present, and authentic you are as an individual, the more effective you will be in your work and in your life. This has been the premise of more than fifteen years of developmental work taught at the Decurion Corporation and resulting in The Practice of Self-Management: A Handbook for Walking the Path from Reactivity to Presence and Connection. Time-tested lessons, meditations, and daily-life practices will help you to expand your awareness, deepen your understanding, and transform your connection with those around you. The practices found in this handbook do more than enhance business effectiveness. Becoming more present, reducing reactivity, and dissolving barriers between yourself and others will transform your life as a whole.

“I’ve read many books about being ‘fully present’ as a path to self-understanding, personal well-being, and effectiveness. This is one of the best, and, in one vital respect, it stands almost alone: the practices it advocates have been tested and proved in the fast-paced, high-pressure corporate world where they’ve helped people forge more open, honest, and generative relationships with coworkers, customers, strangers, and, most important, themselves. Anything we can do to develop ‘true self’ also enhances the well-being of those with whom we live and work. This wonderfully well-written and practical handbook offers wise counsel on what true self-development looks like in thought and action.”
Parker J. Palmer, author of On the Brink of Everything, Let Your Life Speak, A Hidden Wholeness, and The Courage to Teach
