Chamber, Northshire to Host Luncheon Featuring Author Michael Carroll

By Staff Report | Business
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with Northshire Bookstore to host a luncheon featuring Michael Carroll, author of Fearless at Work and The Mindful Leader. The event will take place Friday, December 13, noon to 1:30 p.m. at The Holiday Inn, 232 Broadway, Saratoga Springs. As a founding director of AAW Associates, Michael Carroll consults with major corporations on bringing mindfulness into the workplace. In The Mindful Leader, Michael Carroll focuses on ten key principles of mindfulness and how they apply to leading groups and organizations, addressing a range of topics along the way. In Fearless at Work Carroll explains how the practice of mindfulness—full awareness of our moment-to-moment experience—can help us become more confident and open to possibility in our work life. He offers a system of potent, inspiring principles that we can use as a practice for helping us work with our insecurities and awakening our natural bravery, resourcefulness, and resilience. “I read The Mindful Leader and came away with some very relevant and interesting ideas on leadership and how to work with others”, says Todd Shimkus, President, Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce. “He offered some really sensible strategies to better manage conflict and acknowledged the importance of caring for yourself while you are trying to do your job. I expect his presentation will be both inspiring given his experiences as well as practical with everyone that does attend coming away with a few good ideas and a new book too.” “We hosted Michael Carroll in Vermont. He is the real deal.” said Chris Morrow, co-owner of Northshire Bookstore. “He has decades of experience in various corporate environments as well as a lengthy and robust training in meditation - a great combination.” Those attending will receive a copy of Fearless at Work, lunch and a ticket to listen to Mr. Carroll speak about leadership. This event is open to all Chamber and community members for $40. At the conclusion of the event, you will have the opportunity to get your copy of the book signed during an autograph session.
