Praise for Mindful Leadership
"Whether I was running a multi-billion-dollar company or a start-up, I thought I was doing everyone a favor by multi-tasking. I actually believed I was one of the few that could do it well. Maria''s insight and approach have made me realize that I was a distracted and inefficient leader who created stress for both myself and those I led. This book is a must-read for anyone in a position of leadership or a position to impact others in small organizations or large."

approaches the subject of leadership and decision-making from an unusual perspective. The insights are practical and useful; the techniques, which are both simple and complex at the same time, are laid out clearly and in fascinating detail."

"Make no mistake about it: this book is a gift. A gift to all busy leaders, managers, and individuals who wish to make a difference for themselves and, above all, for those around them. Looking beyond the razor-edge of Key Performance Indicators and hard outcomes, it deals with changing the way one looks at leadership, bringing authenticity and values to the fore, and achieving more for all in the process. Management meets meditation to provide something simply awesome and awe-inspiring for those fortunate enough to read this and be open to its wisdom. It''s a much needed new way of living and thinking, like a breath of fresh air to chase those blue cobwebs away from our minds, recharge our energy, and add gracious purpose to our lives. Thank you!"
