Publisher's Summary

Become a true leader through Mindfulness.

If you thought leading a team or organization meant simply creating and implementing a financial plan, delegating responsibility, and watching the bottom line, well, you're only partly right. True leadership comes from within, a place of deep calm and focus, that allows you to respond to any situation as it arises.

In Mindful Leadership, you'll learn how to draw on those inner reserves through Mindfulness Meditation, a tool you can use to achieve focus and clarity, reduce stress, and develop the presence of mind to meet any number of challenges.

The author opens up a world of meditation exercises that can be done anywhere, anytime (no chanting or patchouli required!) and that are the gateway to improved judgment and decision making, improved time management, enhanced team effectiveness, greater productivity, and more on-the-job inspiration and innovation. This book:

  • Details the nine ways in which leaders can incorporate Mindfulness into every aspect of their lives
  • Illustrates how meditation and business actually do mix
  • Is essential for anyone interested in anticipating and serving client needs

The author coaches executives throughout North America and is quoted widely in the media. Offering essential skills for both life and work, Mindful Leadership shows how it's possible to successfully lead a team, an entire organization - or just yourself.

A little disappointing

Would you try another book from Maria Gonzalez and/or Vanessa Hart?

I'd try another form Maria Gonzalez, but I prefer a different narrator.

Has Mindful Leadership turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Vanessa Hart?

Not sure - but someone more dynamic ... how about a Warren Greshes

Lost Interest

I lost interest and didn't finish the last couple of chapters. I am not certain that I got anything new or different for the time.

Probably parts better in print

The reader of this book was excellent, particularly for the topic, but the instructions for meditation techniques would probably be better received in print. Great book, overall, and I certainly recommend it and Vanessa Hart as a narrator - I very much enjoyed her voice.
