Your Mother is Right is a unique and insightful leadership book that connects self awareness, self care and the brain to greater leadership success. The 'whys' behind simple concepts and advice that we have heard before made sense... and made me think about my own personal habits that I need to work on! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a new perspective on how to be an effective leader or someone looking for a book to recommend for their leadership book club!”

I really enjoyed reading "Your Mother Was Right", it was well written with clever insights about how the brain is affected by some of our habits and how in turn this can impact our leadership abilities. I really enjoyed the part about mindfulness, in the information age it is truly amazing how often we are distracted by technology that is supposed to make us more efficient! This book has inspired me to be conscious of my brain health and make changes that can both improve my health and leadership!"

What a wonderfully written book. Written in the first person, it is like having a conversation with the author. Personal experiences lend such an intimate feeling and credibility. I'm sure we can all identify with the "15 Unexpected Lessons" - things we all know but need to be reminded of and take note of how they can relate to so many areas of our lives. This book is a valuable tool for the office professional as well as anyone else who deals with others on a day to day basis - namely everyone!"
