Description

Leadership is the most crucial choice one can make—it is the decision to step out of darkness into the light.
 
   Bestselling author and spiritual guide Deepak Chopra invites you to become the kind of leader most needed today: a leader with vision who can make that vision real. Chopra has been teaching leadership to CEOs and other top executives for eight years, and the path outlined in The Soul of Leadership applies to any business, but the same principles are relevant in every community and area of life, from family and home to school, place of worship, and neighborhood. “At the deepest level,” Chopra writes, “a leader is the symbolic soul of a group.”
   
   With clear, practical steps, you are led through the crucial skills outlined in the acronym L-E-A-D-E-R-S:
L = Look and Listen
E = Emotional Bonding
A = Awareness
D = Doing
E = Empowerment
R = Responsibility
S = Synchronicity
   
   After identifying your own soul profile and the core values you want to develop, you can use these seven skills to allow your potential for greatness to emerge. Only from the level of the soul, Chopra contends, are great leaders created. Once that connection
is made, you have unlimited access to the most vital qualities a leader can possess: creativity, intelligence, organizing power, and love.
   
   The Soul of Leadership
aims to fill the most critical void in contemporary life, the void of enlightened leaders. “You can be such a leader,” Chopra promises. “The path is open to you. The only requirement is that you learn to listen to your inner guide.” In this unique handbook you are shown how to do just that, in words as practical as they are uplifting. The future is unfolding at this very minute, and the choice to lead it lies with each of us, here and now.

Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 29, 2010 – For Chopra, whether one owns a company or coaches Little League, good leadership comes from the soul. The author's prominence as a contemporary spiritual teacher would not be possible without business savvy, making him uniquely qualified to address how the sacred can thrive in the secular realm of commerce and management. With exercises in meditation, soul profiles, and group consciousness building, readers are taught to locate and then lead from the soul. It is leading from the soul that is the mark of a "successful visionary," Chopra writes, someone who "makes his or her vision manifest in the world." Chopra's approach is both calm and challenging, particularly when exploring the seductive nature of power and its potential for misuse. Compassionate managers, the author maintains, must move from the needs of the ego to the needs of the group. This volume teaches that influential world figures don't have a monopoly on vision, and anyone can improve the lives of others by merging self-awareness and compassion. In the business of making positive contributions, it is possible to "lead and serve at the same time."
