About the Author

Mindy Hall, PhD is the President and CEO of Peak Development Consulting, LLC. Since founding the company 1996, she has worked with clients throughout North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia to create sustainable organization and leadership development solutions: helping leaders create solutions for today’s challenges, while also growing their capacity to lead future initiatives from within. Clients include leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology, technology, insurance, manufacturing, government, and nonprofit organizations, several of which are among the Fortune 50.

Mindy has over 25 years of experience in organization and leadership development. Prior to founding Peak Development, her corporate career spanned positions in the pharmaceutical and banking industries, including experience in global roles and as an expatriate in Paris. She began her career as the director of a nonprofit, 24-hour crisis center and has always been surprised how transferable the skills were from crisis center to corporate work.

She holds a PhD in Human and Organizational Systems from Fielding Graduate University, and her doctoral dissertation, “Deep Learning: A Case Study Exploration” was published in paperback in 2011. She also holds Master’s Degrees in both Organization Development and Human Resources Management.

Her newest book, Leading with Intention: Every Moment Is a Choice, challenges you to make a profound, deliberate mark on both your organization and the world around you. Informed by her experience working with leaders in Fortune 50 companies, biotech start-ups, financial services firms, and non-profit organizations, Leading with Intention provides real-life examples and practical tools for increasing your awareness and being more deliberate in your choices. It is available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Mindy hosts the podcast Peak Development Radio, featuring great conversations and practical advice for making your organization stronger. Guests have included leaders from Johnson & Johnson, Starbucks, Novartis, Pfizer, Biogen Idec, and more. Episodes are available through peakdevelopment.com, iTunes, and Stitcher radio on-demand.

She is a contributing columnist for Entrepreneur, and writes the Growing Your Organization blog, for leaders who know that growth isn’t solely about size; it encompasses culture, strategy, innovation, efficiency, leadership, teamwork, and more.

She counts herself fortunate to be doing work she loves with people she respects. Her philosophy can be summed up in eight simple words: “I want it to matter that we met.”

Being ‘intentional’ is a simple concept that when applied is so powerful. It allows you to shape how you engage and are viewed as a leader. This book is going to be a must-read for my entire leadership team.
Michael ConwayExecutive Vice President of Global Channel Development (CPG and Foodservice)Starbucks
Presence may be the metacompetency of effective leadership. In Leading with Intention, Mindy Hall gives you the pragmatic tools to be present with yourself, your colleagues, and your life to manifest your deepest, most heartfelt intentions.

I have long awaited the publication of this book. Mindy’s concepts—elegant in their simplicity and practical in their application—make this the go-to manual for leadership impact!
Lisa UthgenanntSenior Vice President of Human ResourcesCovance
Through the leadership looking glass, Dr. Hall takes us to a place of self-examination. We all likely have a collection of ‘how to’ business books proudly displayed on our on shelves. This one remains on my desk.
Jeffrey KeislingCorporate Vice President and Chief Information OfficerPfizer
Beware! There are too many books on management. However, Leading with Intention is unique. It is clear (no jargon!), based on real-life experience, intriguing, smart, and useful. This is a must-read!
Michel de RosenChairman and CEOEutelsat Communications
Not surprisingly, Mindy Hall’s Leading with Intention is well written and immediately practical in its applicability, making every moment of the day a leadership opportunity. Don’t bother trying to highlight all the valuable points. You will find them in almost every paragraph.
Christopher P. MolineauxPresident and CEOPennsylvania Bio
The best leaders I have met never stop looking for ways to improve. Because Dr. Hall’s stories and tools are deceptively simple to use but profoundly real in their impact, these leaders will want to keep this book close at hand.
Christi ShawPresidentNovartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation
Leading with Intention is not leadership theory; it is leadership practice. It offers tools that you can begin applying right away and that integrate into your existing efforts.
