Overview

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.
