Clark Baim is a Fellow of the Berry Street Childhood Institute, in recognition of his excellence, integrity and leadership. Personally, I think of Clark as a Jedi Knight! After years of training, he continues to seek truth in himself and others, always establishing and working within respectful, compassionate and diplomatic relationships. Thank you Clark for sharing some of your wisdom in this book.

Clark Baim's well-written and easily accessible book on mindful co-working is very timely indeed: with more people working harder and longer than ever before and in today's climate of job insecurity, "working together" is fundamental for business success. This highly readable and practical book is a must-read for anybody wanting to enhance their working relationships.

Clark Baim's wonderful offering brings the skills of mindfulness into our everyday (potentially) productive relationships. Cultivating Baim's five clearly defined principles of mindful co-working, does not require us to do some special or exotic practice; rather, we are simply asked to do what we do with our full attention -- together. Within that focus, we can co-create a space of working and achieving together that is not only fulfilling for each of us, but also rewarding for all.
