Michael Chaskalson


Michael began his mindfulness practice in the mid-1970s – before it was ever a thing – and has pioneered its application to leadership and other workplace contexts. He is the author of the agenda-setting book The Mindful Workplace (Wiley, 2011) and the bestselling Mindfulness in Eight Weeks (Harper Thorsons, 2014). He co-authored Mindfulness for Coaches (Routledge, 2017) and Mind Time (co-written with Megan and published by Harper Thorsons, 2018) and has written any number of articles and co-authored papers.

Based on his practice of mindfulness and related disciplines, Michael now shares his insights and research with audiences worldwide as a keynote speaker, coach, consultant, and teacher.

Michael has also been a successful social entrepreneur, founding a fair trade company that came to have annual sales of £10 million and 200 employees.

As well as his consultancy and training work at Mindfulness Works, Michael is a Professor of Practice adjunct at Hult Ashridge Executive Education; an associate at the Møller Institute at Churchill College in the University of Cambridge; and contributes regularly to programmes at London Business School.

Michael lives in Cambridge with his wife and Ruby – a bouncy cavapoochon who never lets anything or anyone get too serious.
