Author(s): Deepak Chopra
"The Soul of Leadership" decodes the mysterious qualities that have propelled history's greatest leaders to the top of the ranks and shrouded them in legend - Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, Buddha - and provides a hands-on approach to understanding and mastering these qualities. The 10 Fundamental Principles, that Deepak Chopra believes all leaders should follow, include: a leader is the symbolic soul of the group; inner qualities determine the outcome of any situation; for every need, the right response can be found; great leaders can respond to all situations from the higher levels of spirit; and, a leader focused only on external goals (money, victory, power) will fail. Using well-known examples of great leaders and a clear, concise breakdown of the virtues that a great leader must possess, "The Soul of Leadership" demystifies leadership and empowers us all to become leaders in our own right - from managing a family crisis to starting our own business.
An accessible guide to unlocking the secrets of great leadership
"I greatly enjoyed Deepak's newest book "The Soul of Leadership." From the chapter on synchronicity on, I couldn't put it down. It's got so many quality ideas that it must be read a second time. The book inspired me to become a better leader."
--George Zimmer, Men's Wearhouse
""The Soul of Leadership" unfolds as an exceptional guide for remembering how to access the peace and clarity the soul brings to any vision, decision, action, or non-action. Deepak Chopra's latest book lights the way to 21st century leadership, where consciousness, love and compassion redefine the locus of power in relationships and organizations. A truly aware leader in touch with his or her soul will always be in the flow of the world. Like a tuned-in kayaker in white water, when you are in the middle of it, you continually contribute your own creativity and good intentions to the overall flow, while inspiring and empowering your team to do the same."
