Truth You Can Act On: 

  1. Understand Your Biology. As leaders, when you start to understand the biology behind your brain, you can demystify it in a way that you don't have to feel like you're being controlled by it. Neal recommends meditation as a tool to combat that stressed or overwhelmed feeling. 
  2. Emotion. Releasing and using your emotions is a core principle of mindfulness. As a leader, having emotions and showing vulnerability can bring your workplace together.
