As business leaders, we are so often called to do things: make decisions, fix problems, manage money. But, the irony is, the more we do, the less control we have. Effective leadership requires composition, control, and focus—skills which are all strengthened by learning to donothing.
Years of practicing mindful meditation have helped Rob Dube become an acclaimed entrepreneur, propelling his leadership to new heights.

He also teaches you how to meditate—the easy part!—and the best ways to turn a daily practice into a lifelong habit.
