Scott Cluthe talks Live Thursday with Marc Lesser, CEO of SIYLI and author of Know Yourself, Forget Yourself from New World Library.  The call in line is 347-308-8478.

The book states: "We all yearn for clear-cut answers to life’s problems, yet we rarely get them. Formulas fail and contradictions mount. In Know Yourself, Forget Yourself, executive coach and mindfulness teacher Marc Lesser shows that understanding and embracing the points where life feels most confusing, most contradictory can lead us to more satisfaction and joy."

Lesser provides clear guidance and simple practices for embracing five central paradoxes in life and navigating them to increase our effectiveness and happiness. Influenced by the revolutionary mindfulness and emotional intelligence trainings he helped develop at Google, Know Yourself, Forget Yourself is a profound book about cultivating the emotional skills to understand the right path through difficulties and challenges.

Marc shares this,  "One of my most gratifying activities during these past few years has been co-developing and co-teaching a program at Google called Search Inside Yourself, a program that integrates mindfulness with emotional intelligence. Daniel Goleman in his book Working With Emotional Intelligence. says, “Analysis done by dozens of different experts in close to five hundred corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations worldwide have arrived independently at remarkably similar conclusions. Their conclusions all point to the paramount place of emotional intelligence in excellence on the job – virtually any job”.
