Organizations must keep evolving and adapting in this rapidly changing world to stay relevant and succeed. Business leaders must focus on the interconnectedness between knowledge, self, and the external world. Knowledge serves as a bridge between the internal and external world, and knowledge management focuses on externalizing tacit expertise and using it as a vital source for competitive advantage. According to author Laila Marouf, a successful organization's knowledge is powerful and dynamic, akin to a living system of intricately woven varied inner life threads and the collective human wisdom of countless diverse individuals. Knowledge Mindfulness is a book aimed to help you change how you think, approach any given situation, and apply knowledge most efficiently and effectively. Including the additional domain of self to personal expertise and its interconnectedness leads to knowledge mindfulness.

With this book, Professor Laila Marouf offers readers the tools and practices of knowledge management to help them find a deeper understanding of knowledge and self. By the end of the book, you will learn to tap into your intuition and find your authentic self. Knowledge Mindfulness presents ways in which leaders can drive their success forward, which include experimenting, humanizing the knowledge markets, finding joy in the daily grind, thinking about the consequences, and many more. Marouf rightfully emphasizes that the world is currently in a VUCA state (volatile, uncertain, changing, and ambiguous). In this world, holistically combining internal and external knowledge with all that they entail and their interconnectedness gives us a broader and fresher perspective on knowledge management. Marouf presents some complex and thought-provoking subject matter in an accessible manner that makes it easy to grasp for readers—highly recommended.
