I can’t wait for all of you to listen to my powerful conversation with mindfulness expert and Stanford Graduate School of Business Professor Leah Weiss! We talk about her affinity for making infant leg warmers, how she got interested in mindfulness practices at a very young age, and why a lack of self-awareness might be holding you back from the success you’ve been looking for at work and at home. You don’t want to miss this one!
About the Book: In today’s workplace, the traditional boundaries between “work” and “personal” are neither realistic nor relevant. From millennials seeking employment in the sharing economy to Gen Xers telecommuting to Baby Boomers creating a meaningful second act, the line that separates who we are from the work we do is blurrier than ever.
The truth is, we don’t show up for our jobs as a portion of ourselves—by necessity, we bring both our hearts and our minds to everything we do. In How We Work, mindfulness expert and creator of the perennially-waitlisted Stanford Business School course “Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion” Dr. Leah Weiss explains why this false dichotomy can be destructive to both our mental health and our professional success.
The bad news, says Weiss, is that nothing provides more opportunities for negative emotions—anxiety, anger, envy, fear, and paranoia, to name a few—than the dynamics of the workplace. But the good news is that these feelings matter. How we feel at and about work matters—to ourselves, to the quality of our work, and ultimately to the success of the organizations for which we work.
The path to productivity and success, says Weiss, is not to change jobs, to compartmentalize our feelings, or to create a false “professional” identity—but rather to listen to the wisdom our feelings offer. Using mindfulness techniques, we can learn how to attend to difficult feelings without becoming subsumed by them; we can develop an awareness of our bigger picture goals that orients us and allows us to see purpose in even the most menial tasks. In How We Work, Weiss offers a set of practical, evidence-based strategies for practicing mindfulness in the real world, showing readers not just how to survive another day, but how to use ancient wisdom traditions to sharpen their abilities, enhance their leadership and interpersonal skills, and improve their satisfaction.

In this episode I sit down with Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis to talk about the ways her personal faith journey and convictions influenced her decision to defend traditional marriage and religious freedom.
About the Book: This true story goes behind the scenes to reveal how God gave this unlikely candidate a platform to defend marriage and religious freedom.
In this amazing narrative of redemption and courage, Davis details her personal experience from the moment former Governor Beshear ordered the state’s county clerks to issue same-sex marriage licenses, throughout her arrest and release from jail.
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee “It’s a great read. But more than that, this remarkable story of what God did in Kim’s life gives me hope for our nation.”
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said, “When history called upon Kim, she was both ready and willing to respond. Will the same be said of you?”
So excited to bring Kyle Mann on for this episode of The Shaun Tabatt Show! We discuss the history of The Babylon Bee and explore how a couple of guys running a Christian satire website end up getting a book deal with a major Christian publisher.
About the Book: Written in the trademark style of The Babylon Bee, this book humorously satirizes cultural Christianity while peppering in subtle challenges to the reader.

About the Book: Award-winning social entrepreneur Justin Zoradi was once haunted by this question as a young person daunted by the world’s needs, yet wanting to make a difference.

A life of significance isn’t about what you are doing, it’s about who you are becoming. In these trying times, God is calling you to be brave. Made For These Times is a rallying declaration that we cannot rely on the heroes of the past to engage the challenges of today. It’s your turn – let this book be the spark you’ve been waiting for.
