“As leader: Are you addicted to a high level of busyness? Do you (subconsciously) believe you need to work hard or hardest to be effective? Or be the expert in everything? Do you have a hard time to give yourself permission to make space to think and feel? Then this book is for you. Jennifer Card makes a meaningful and actionable contribution to the concept of equanimity: the capacity for self-composure, self-awareness, and cognitive calmness in the face of uncertainty. A superpower for any leader in a time of rising uncertainty and ever more complexity”.
Dr. Katharina Schmidt, PsyD, MBA, MCC Inspiration & Discipline
“The insights in this book help leaders become the well-being hub of their organizations by first cultivating their power over their own minds. Dr. Card’s theory-based and practice-oriented methods are universally applicable to leaders across geographic regions, times, professional fields, seniority levels, and challenges; every leader can find a home in this book.”

“We all want to perform at our best. The reality, though, is that we spend much of our time off balance, drained, and operating in survival mode. Dr. Card’s book provides an antidote to this common experience. While developing traditional leadership skills is important, Dr. Card guides and equips leaders to cultivate the meta-skill of equanimity, which in turn unleashes one’s best self. Today’s leaders must adopt a “marathon” mindset and skill set. Leadership Equanimity is the instruction manual that will carry leaders across the finish line with energy to spare”.
Dr. Elias Ursitti, Leadership Psychologist & Executive Coach
“The examples help the reader to see that equanimity can be gained through small moments, not grandiose gestures”.
Suzanne Devlin, PhD. Chair Organizational and Leadership Pscyhology Department, William James College
