Buddhism has for thousands of years provided a spiritual foundation for the daily lives of millions of people around the world. But does Buddhism have anything to offer us Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike in todays world of work? Metcalf and Gallagher think it does. Spiritual wisdom, Western or Eastern, inspires and instructs us in living a good life. And thats just as true at work as at home.
Buddha mind a source of calm, compassion, and insight exists within each of us, not just the historical Buddha. Being Buddha at Work shows how to embody that mind in the stress and clamor of the workplace how to tap into the Buddha consciousness so we can relieve daily tensions and greet challenges with awareness, equanimity, and good humor.
The book is divided into three sections. The first, Becoming a Mindful Worker, covers Buddhas wisdom for our own work; the second, Cultivating Mindful Work Relationships, focuses on how to work with other people; the third, Creating a Mindful Workplace, deals with broader organizational topics. There is wisdom here for everyone from front-line workers and team members, to supervisors and managers, to top executives and organizational leaders.
