WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass., July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "It is time to redefine leadership and business in noble terms. It is clear to me that a sustainable society requires it. The Yoga of Leadership shows a leader how to become a happy, healthy, and connected leader that is motivated through purpose and principle," continues Mitchell.

The Yoga of Leadership is the WINNER of the 12th Annual National Indie Excellence Awards in both the Leadership and Motivational categories and the FINALIST in Wellbeing. The Yoga of Leadership is also a FINALIST in the Motivational category in the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Award contest.

"I am truly honored and humbled for the recognition of two nationally known award contests," says yoga teacher and financial services professional Tarra Mitchell about her new book, The Yoga of Leadership: A Practical Guide to Health, Happiness, and Inspiring Total Team Engagement.

To help leaders achieve and maintain qualities essential to leadership success while fostering team engagement, Mitchell has designed a novel approach to leadership growth and development. Leveraging time-honored techniques from the traditional practice of yoga, The Yoga of Leadership explains how, by taking care of their holistic well-being, leaders are better able to:

  • control emotions and manage stress,
  • focus and concentrate,
  • strengthen relationships, connection, and engagement,
  • lead through an embodied set of principles,
  • think more clearly and decisively, and
  • make life-enhancing choices that improve overall well-being.

"Personal well-being is not only principle centric, but also a leading indicator of success at work and in life. When the rubber meets the road and we have to perform as leaders, it all needs to be in check," Mitchell says.

"As I've seen time and again, it's better to get folks to enlist than be drafted. True winning is about winning people over, inspiring them. Leaders must connect with their teams, know them well, and communicate the right messages to them so they willingly 'enlist'. People want to follow principled leaders who are ethical and supportive," furthered Mitchell.

Praise for The Yoga of Leadership
"The Yoga of Leadership is an informative and thought-provoking complement to books on leadership. Oriented toward individual transformation, Tarra Mitchell shares a morally deep and timely message empowering leaders to raise consciousness through what she calls holistic wellbeing. With the integrity of an insider, she intelligently weaves together the elements necessary to become inspiring leaders in today's fast-paced work environment and offers a convincing case leveraging ancient wisdom, science, and stories. This book has profound implications for how we manage our days, weeks, teams, and organizations."

—John Mackey, Co-Founder and CEO, Whole Foods Market, Co-Author, Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business

"In our 30 years of working with clients on personal finance, we at Edelman Financial know that personal finance is more personal than finance. There is a necessary human element in all business endeavors. Tarra and I share the same language. The Yoga of Leadership teaches us how to tap into our inner self so we can be the best leader and person we can be. Brava, Tarra!

—Jean Edelman, Co-Founder, Edelman Financial Services, and Author, The Other Side of Money

"The Yoga of Leadership is a deep and meaningful resource with real world applicability. Tarra Mitchell brings the ancient wisdom of yoga into leadership in a way that will easily resonate. Tarra committed to me many years back that she would bring yoga to the business world in some way and here it is!"

—Rolf Gates, Teacher and Author, Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Meditations on Intention and Being: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion.
