Ray’s Books

Incredibly well researched, as with everything Ray writes, Eye of the Storm provides a detailed overview of the crisis that some leaders and organizations are experiencing where the focus is on ego driven, externally focused goals. Ray outlines the solution –a mindful way of being (vs doing) that nurtures an inside-out approach to being intentional, and ethical in order to create a win-win situation for the leader, their family, their team, the organization and beyond. – Tana Heminsley
