In Reinvent the Wheel, McNealy takes on the mistaken belief, pervasive in our workplaces, that doing well is more important than being well. In executive summary style, with to-the-point research combined with poignant stories, McNealy shows that well-being, in fact, drives, promotes and accelerates success.
The secret sauce of Reinvent the Wheel is a simple, yet powerful image, the Well Being Wheel, created by McNealy to reinforce her revolutionary process for achieving total well-being. Created to restore her own well-being and turbo-charge her success, the Well Being Wheel is used by thousands of business high-achievers as a tool for optimizing their health, happiness, and work performance. Each succinct chapter highlights a spoke of the Wheel:
6 for BODY
6 for MIND
6 for SPIRIT
Along with instructions to readers for customizing the 18 spokes for themselves, the book features exclusive interviews and original content from 18 well-being fueled "Exceptional Executives," CEOs, founders and entrepreneurs who master and leverage these different aspects of well-being, and consistently show up in breakout mode. With surprising candor and openness, the Exceptional Executives share their secrets to well-being, and include, among others: John Mackey, Co-founder of Whole Foods Market, Steven Rice, Chief Human Resources Officer, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc., Chip Conley, Founder of Joie de Vivre Hotels, Gopi Kallayil, Chief Evangelist of Brand Marketing at Google, and Robyn Denholm, CFO Telstra Corporation and Chairman of the Board of Tesla. Their behind-the-scenes strategies inspire the reader to up-level their belief in what level of success, in business and life, is possible.
