The Leader's Way : The Art of Making the Right Decisions in Our Careers, Our Companies, and the World at Large
The world today faces many unique challenges: the worst global recession in over seventy-five years, with millions out of jobs and entire economies in a tailspin; billions of people living in abject poverty; the imminent threat of an environmental meltdown. Even prosperous businesses and leaders feel insecure about the future. A new kind of leadership is needed-one that sees events as they really are and understands the interconnectedness, impermanence, and interdependence of individuals, companies, and the global economic system.
Through fascinating insights and day-to-day examples, His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers practical tools and advice on how to lead in our twenty-first-century world. Drawing on the wise teachings of Buddhism, he says, we can become better, more informed leaders as individuals, achieve more progressive leadership in our organizations, and help address some of the world's most pressing problems. Moreover, we can improve the quality of life for all by promoting responsible, ethical, and profitable business practices. "That" is the leader's way.
A rewarding, surprising view into the life and thoughts of one of the world's most inspiring leaders, "The Leader's Way" provides a powerful manifesto for leading change at every level-in our lives, our organizations, and the wider world. "From the Hardcover edition."
