This book applies the concept of mindfulness to the challenges faced by academic leaders such as department chairs, deans,
provosts, presidents or chancellors, and faculty leaders. In addition to instructing academic leaders how to become more
mindful, the book also provides clear and practical explanations about what mindful leadership means in the setting of higher
education. Unlike other books on mindfulness, this work does not assume that the only pathway to becoming more mindful is
meditation. Although meditation is discussed as a technique, the book also presents numerous others strategies for becoming
a more mindful leader without a meditation practice. The book is designed for use by individual academic leaders, administrative
teams in a retreat, leadership workshops or training programs, and courses in higher education leadership.
