The Mindful Leader

Check out the new interview series by my colleague Maria Gonzalez called “Conversations with Mindful Leaders.” The interview she conducted with me is in the January issue of her “Mindful Leadership” newsletter (scroll down about 3/4 way down to the interview). We talk about inspirational people in my life path, the cross-fertilization of science and meditation, and how mindfulness changes lives.

Myoshin (Maria) is founder and President of Argonauta Strategic Alliances Consulting and a long time student and facilitator of the Basic Mindfulness system. Her vision is “to spread mindfulness globally,” chiefly by offering her skills to help organizations and their leaders to apply mindfulness to every aspect of their business, including developing strategy, creating successful strategic alliances and managing the organization.

She challenges people to consider: What will change in your life if you start thinking of yourself as a leader? What if every action becomes your way to lead?
