Spreading Mindful Intentionality Inside Google with Bill Duane on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 56

What does a title like Superintendent of Well-Being at Google actually mean? For Bill Duane it was a chance to take the mindfulness practices that helped him deal with his own anger and grief, and share them in a sustainable way. In this episode of Hack the Process Bill will explain how the practical value of meditation overcame the objections of his rational mind, what processes helped him develop a scalable training program at Google, and why he decided to leave the company after twelve years to create space for new opportunities.
