Simple, short, serene and calming are several words coming to mind while reflecting on the readings in Maria Gonzalez's work. Mindful Leadership comes from considerable time spent developing mindfulness methods, and research with various other sources.

Well written, compact volume for busy people. Mindfulness is a process anyone can learn to achieve clarity, focus, and improve yourself as a leader. Excellent read for anyone. Lots of real world examples and scenarios. Recommended.
