Northeastern University: Meet the Author


Meet Author of The Mindful Leader, Michael Carroll

Author Michael Carroll discusses his book, "The Mindful Leader: Ten Principles for Bringing Out the Best in Ourselves and Others" as part of Northeastern University Libraries' Meet the Author Series, on January 28, 2009. Michael Carroll, a Buddhist-trained HR executive with many years of experience in both the corporate world and the world of Zen, draws attention to the benefits that can result from taking time out to reflect in the workplace. In "The Mindful Leader," Carroll addresses ways to enhance productivity when working, focusing on ways to open communication and break the limitations of routine. By the end, stressed-out employees and students may be willing to give meditation a try as a way to connect with and open up to their colleagues.
