Book Reviews

Dr. Marouf has written a guide for leaders to engage in a personal journey of knowledge mindfulness in this disorienting age of disruption. She orients this path toward personal knowledge maturity—that is less of a destination but rather a process of renewing one’s knowledge and ability to take action in the world. It uniquely blends what is personal with what is strategic and practical.

I found Knowledge Mindfulness very relevant to any large organization, as successful companies strive to shift knowledge from individuals to “Organization Knowledge” where many can benefit and draw on the vast experiences across the organization. The success of any organization can be tied to employee motivation in engaging with Knowledge Mindfulness and Knowledge Sharing. Good leaders encourage employees to make proper use of their knowledge process and draw on mindfulness to better facilitate Knowledge Creation and Knowledge Sharing. The book directs organizations on how to better build and maintain organizational knowledge and how sharing this knowledge across the organization is an essential part of the success and continuity of any organization. The book addresses a comprehensive model with practical examples and actionable strategies that executives can use to enhance their Knowledge Mindfulness process. With my five decades in executive roles, I found this book to be very relevant to today’s volatile world.

If you struggle to understand how knowledge mindfulness can help you and the situations around you, then Prof. Laila Marouf’s book is a must read.

Jeroen van der Veer

Former CEO, Phillips

This book is a much needed, timely, and elegantly constructed link between two key concepts: knowledge and mindfulness. As the world hurtles towards an uncertain future, we need to take stock and be aware—personally and as a species—of what it means to be human, about how knowledge enhances our existence, and in the face of AI, how it might not. The heartfelt arc of this book is a real meditation by itself, but the message is very refreshing.
