The 1% Podcast – Scott Shute

Scott Shute’s work combines the knowledge of ancient philosophical teaching with the practicality of work. He blends his lifelong practice and passion with his practical leadership and operations experience. His mission is to change work from the inside out by “mainstreaming mindfulness” and “operationalizing compassion”. He put that mission into practice in his previous role as Head of Mindfulness and Compassion at LinkedIn, as well as putting it to paper in his 2021 book ‘The Full Body Yes: Change Your Work and Your World from the Inside Out’.
