This anthology of interdisciplinary writings looks at the integration of mind, body, and spirit as it plays out in the workplace—whether in birth coaching, teaching parents, assisting the terminally ill, or working in the military, the classroom, or the corporation. These essays reveal what gets in the way of our humanity in the work world and how to rediscover that humanity. Written by leading professionals in business, education, medicine, technology, finance, psychology, and the military, this collection of essays explores how reconnecting with one’s humanity can result in true leadership in any field.

Dr. Strozzi-Heckler has taught the principles of embodied leadership and mastery to businesses, the government, the military, non-profit organizations, health care professionals, and educators for the last thirty years. He is the author of The Anatomy of Change and In Search of the Warrior Spirit as well as the editor of Aikido and the New Warrior and Holding the Center.
"Being Human at Work shows that human accomplishment emanates from the wisdom of our body, soul, spirit, and mind. When we operate as though it is only from our intellect, we use a fraction of our capacity. This book shows that when we allow people the full expression of their "selves" at work, breakthrough results occur."
—Ruth Otte, former president of The Discovery Channel
"This book is a rich blend of essays by Strozzi Institute colleagues, who view the body as a subject rather than as an object, the senses as integral to the intellect, and long-term mastery of the self as a universal birthright."
—George Leonard, author of Mastery and The Ultimate Athlete
