LATimes: Mindfulness as a Management Skill?

Earlier this year the LATimes published a fantastic article by Robin Rauzi about applying  mindfulness to business.  It was one of the most thoughtful pieces of the genre so far.  I was happy to be featured, but happier to see that people realize the mindfulness is more than just reducing stress, but integral to how knowledge workers can effectively function.

You can download the text of the article:
