Meet the ineffable Don Jones, a legend in the field of technology who is also a fantasy fiction writer. Why is he on the Language of Mindfulness? Aside from being a great guy, after decades of success in IT, he is starting a venture that helps people, anyone actually, but with a special emphasis on IT, to learn and use the skills needed to have a successful career. Don fully embraces the principle that you need more than professional skills to be successful in the business world these days. Skills that you need include emotional intelligence, mindfulness, group dynamics, and it wouldn’t hurt to learn some public speaking as well. He’s offering support for these and others through his membership non-profit, The Ampere Club.
In this episode, Don and I talk about how “soft skills”, including mindfulness are essential in today’s workplace to help you stand out and succeed.
