About the book
Corporate Nirvana was Sonali's first book and offers powerful insights to identify our true goals, and lead a meaningful life. It is full of inspiring and practical ideas, shared through a leader's extraordinary story set in the corporate world. His struggle with his dysfunctional personal and professional life will resonate with many of us who choose to live a hectic life as the expense of our own best leadership interests. As we forget why we began our leadership journey, we tend to lose sight of who we are and what we value. We begin to exclude those we once cared about, even our team and peers, not to mention our loved ones. Inclusive Leaders, on the other hand, have a sense of balance as they stay in touch with their core and what they value above short-term gains. Several readers have found useful lessons on how to balance their personal and professional success through this book. Shop for Corporate Nirvana
