The Soul of Leadership: Unlocking Your Potential for Greatness

Deepak Chopra, Harmony, $25 (304p) ISBN 978-0-307-40806-8
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." (Dec.)
