How We Work by Leah Weiss

Live Your Purpose, Reclaim Your Sanity, and Embrace the Daily Grind

At work, we often feel confined — and not just by our cubicles. We use guarded language and stay long hours. We feel trapped by a never-ending project or compelled to skip vacation days. We are physically confined, too: tethered to desks, phones, and keyboards, tapping away at emails to keep up the appearance of busyness. More than ever before, Americans are working longer hours, taking less vacation, and reporting feeling sick, bored, and anxious at work. The kicker: we’re not supposed to feel any of this. “Acting professional” is code for keeping emotions out of the workplace. Employees are expected to become numb the moment they punch the clock. But they’re not.

Leah Weiss, Stanford lecturer and author, is asking a revolutionary question of a tired, dissatisfied American workforce: How are you?

Weiss knows that actually feeling our feelings changes the way we work — for the better. Her research shows that practicing mindfulness in the workplace leads to healthier employees, clear-sighted leadership, and yes, even bigger profits.
