Experience is making a comeback. Learn how to repurpose your wisdom. At age 52, after selling the company he founded and ran as CEO for 24 years, rebel boutique hotelier Chip Conley was looking at an open horizon in midlife. Then he received a call from the young founders of Airbnb, asking him to help grow their disruptive start-up into a global hospitality giant. He had the industry experience, but Conley was lacking in the digital fluency of his 20-something colleagues. He didn't write code, or have an Uber or Lyft app on his phone, was twice the age of the average Airbnb employee, and would be reporting to a CEO young enough to be his son. Conley quickly discovered that while he'd been hired as a teacher and mentor, he was also in many ways a student and intern. What emerged is the secret to thriving as a mid-life worker: learning to marry wisdom and experience with curiosity, a beginner's mind, and a willingness to evolve, all hallmarks of the "Modern Elder." In a world that venerates the new, bright, and shiny, many of us are left feeling invisible, undervalued, and threatened by the "digital natives" nipping at our heels. But Conley argues that experience is on the brink of a comeback. Because at a time when power is shifting younger, companies are finally waking up to the value of the humility, emotional intelligence, and wisdom that come with age. And while digital skills might have only the shelf life of the latest fad or gadget, the human skills that mid-career workers possess--like good judgment, specialized knowledge, and the ability to collaborate and coach - never expire. Part manifesto and part playbook, [email protected] ignites an urgent conversation about ageism in the workplace, calling on us to treat age as we would other type of diversity. In the process, Conley liberates the term "elder" from the stigma of "elderly," and inspires us to embrace wisdom as a path to growing whole, not old. Whether you've been forced to make a mid-career change, are choosing to work past retirement age, or are struggling to keep up with the millennials rising up the ranks, [email protected] will help you write your next chapter.

Everyone knows that yoga helps reduce stress and increase the body’s flexibility and strength. But the poses are only one part of a larger philosophy offering profound insights for confronting the complexities of daily life. Yoga can help you remain centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day—especially those between nine and five. This unprecedented guide shows how practicing the full range of yogic concepts—the traditional “Eight Limbs of Yoga”—leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment and features examples from professions like law enforcement, teaching, banking, filmmaking, medicine, and many more. But beyond that, this book is an invitation to use all of yoga’s teachings to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us. The Enhanced Edition includes six videos (9 minutes) and seven audios (21 minutes). The videos include personal stories about the benefits of practicing yoga at work, a method to help honor non-lying and non-violence, and three breath control techniques. The audios feature meditations to help release negativity, increase energy, calm the mind, tap into one’s own essence, and be fully present at work, as well as specific suggestions for living out the yogic precepts of contentment and surrendering to a higher purpose in the workplace.

This collection of essays and interviews highlights the modern movement of ‘philosophical practice’. Taking their cue and call from Socrates’ summons to ‘know thyself’, contemporary philosophical counsellors and practitioners have returned to the ancient understanding of philosophy as consolation and contemplation, as a life directed to the loving search for wisdom and clarity. Socrates and the Stoics continued this tradition, seeing philosophy primarily as a practical way of living in alignment with oneself and the logos. Thus interpreted, philosophy is a path, teaches a method more than pronounces a thesis, and issues a living praxis devoted to daily spiritual exercises whose aim is nothing less than the transformation of the self – a metamorphosis of the personality. This conception of philosophy’s essence was lost, but was later retrieved by certain philosophers, such as Viktor Frankl and Ludwig Wittgenstein, in the twentieth-century, who have unleashed and uncovered philosophy’s original therapeutic impulse and intent. As such, this book will prove of inestimable value to philosophers, psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, counsellors, clients, and students of these disciplines.

Have you ever said something that was so profoundly insightful that you knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that a deeper wisdom than yours was speaking? In fact, there are times when someone else does the same thing and deep inside you are certain that the fountain of that wisdom did not originate in the person speaking. Have you ever done something that was so profoundly unique that you knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that a deeper creativity than yours was manifesting itself through you? In the past some have tended to emphasize creativity at the expense of wisdom or vice versa. I propose that these two invaluable gifts are to a large extent indistinguishable and inseparable, and although there are important differences between them they remain a strong, undefeatable powerful force when put together. In Creative Wisdom you will discover that there is a profound connection between creativity and wisdom. In fact most creatives who are known for lasting inventions and innovation operate in wisdom in one way or the other. This book is also a valuable tool to help you uncover, discover, stimulate and grow creativity insights through the instrumentality of wisdom. This book transcends from simply putting out information and techniques about creative wisdom to putting into the hands of all who are desirous a 365 daily wisdom and creativity declarations and notions that will literally affect the way you perceive and think.
