10% Happier with Dan Harris
Dan Harris wrote the bestselling book, “10% Happier,” started an app — “10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics” — and now, in this podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there’s anything beyond 10%. Basically, here’s what this podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)?
Janice Marturano was a vice president at General Mills working on the Pillsbury merger deal in 2000 when she lost both her parents, and began a regular meditation practice as a way to soothe stress at work and in her personal life. Noticing the relief a daily practice brought her, and wanting to lead by example, she sought out a way to introduce mindfulness to her coworkers, and by the time she left General Mills to start the Institute for Mindful Leadership, she said more than 700 employees had completed mindfulness leadership training.
Leaders in the Trenches
Every business owner I know understands that leadership is a key aspect of growth. Leadership is not the “command and control” type of approach to delegating. Real leadership is so much more.
Our guest today is Janice Marturano, and she shares the four areas of leadership excellence in this interview. Plus, we talk about the two competencies of excellence in leadership. Janice spent more than 30 years being a leader and now her mission is to help others become the leaders they want to be.

Janice Marturano spent 15 years as a high level leader for General Mills. As a self-proclaimed “closet meditator,” she utilized mindfulness and meditation to move herself through some very difficult times in her personal and professional life. As her colleagues began noticing the changes, she soon found herself building out programs for the leaders of General Mills so they too could become mindful leaders. Word spread and in 2011 she began her own non-profit in order to put her full energy into fulfilling the demand! In this inspiring interview, Janice shares about how her company has grown into multiple countries, how she has grown as a mindful leader herself and how YOU can leverage the practice of mindful leadership to help you focus and move your business forward!

Great leaders transcend companies, cultures, and ultimately themselves. Spend a day in their presence, and you’ll know why they’re drawn to leadership – almost universally, you’ll discover that each of them yearns to leave the world a better place. To them, it’s less about earnings projections and much more about human dignity. When the rest of the world is fixated on problems, you’ll find them contemplating the possibilities. To a person, they hardly shy away from making the tough decisions; and despite the consequences, they understand that their ultimate freedom to lead will only come when they accept the responsibility to let go.
