Description

Join NAWMBA-Seattle Professional Chapter's book signing and panel event at the University Bookstore on February, 28, 2017. This event features author Sara Harvey Yao and her book "Drop-in: Lead with Deeper Presence and Courage" and panel speakers:

  • Jeana Jorgensen - General Manager, Microsoft GTM Services, Microsoft

  • Molly Akers, Director Talent Management, T-Mobile


  • Joanie Parsons, President, Parsons + Co.


Drop In challenges our assumptions about the effectiveness of our busy lives and offers a compelling alternative approach to success by inviting people to learn how to "drop in" to the present moment. Deepening our awareness of the present moment, asserts Sara Harvey Yao, is the most efficient and sustainable way to navigate the complexities of work and life and to access our clarity, connection, and courage so we can lead more powerfully. Full of practical tools, Drop In will help busy professionals get out of the spin cycle of their minds and tune in to their already-existing wisdom and clarity.

PARTIAL LIST OF COVERAGE


NETGALLEY REVIEWS

"I've meditated infrequently for the past 5 or 6 years; though I now do it more regularly and decided to read this book to see if it could offer some new meditation techniques. The book immediately dispelled that concept but introduced me to something else, presence. I had only heard a little bit about it before, but only really focused on "mindfulness". That was an interesting discussion. After becoming interesting with presence I was looking for more of a beginner's program (like a 7-day thing). In either case, the author provides the basic parameters that I can play around with." - Charles Franklin, reviewer

"I like this book for the simple fact that it emphasizes practical wisdom over self-help...For those who long to find a reprieve for their mind and spirit, Drop-In is a great inspirational guide to enable self-care and awareness. For those who are already practicing well-being, you'll appreciate the reminders in how to continue effectively "dropping-in" to life." - Laurie Kozlowski, reviewer
