"Leading With Intention: Every Moment Is a Choice directly and perceptively addresses the issue of self-awareness in leadership...Hall's emphasis is on practical guidance for executives."
"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. Molineaux, President and CEO, Pennsylvania Bio
"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 Conway, Executive Vice President of Global ChannelDevelopment, Starbucks
"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."
-Nicholas J. Valeriani, Chief Executive, West Health
"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."
-Kevin Cashman, Senior Partner, CEO and Executive Development, Korn Ferry, and best-selling author of Leadership from the Inside Out and The Pause Principle
"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 Shaw, President, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation

While the ideas in the book are intriguing, the style of the book is challenging. It's too short. Each chapters is only a few pages. It's almost too easy to read. I found that I had to go back and reread frequently. It was like reading somebody's lecture notes without the context of actually hearing the talk. Longer, more cohesive chapters would have helped hold the ideas together.
Some of the later chapters went into areas that I thought were better explained in other books, such as Leadership and Self-Deception and The Outward Mindset. Nevertheless, it's still a good book and worth reading.
