Leading with Soul: An Uncommon Journey in Spirit (Wiley Audio) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the appearance of Leading with Soul in 1995, Terry Deal and Lee Bolman became pioneers in the movement to reconnect work and spirit. Since then, interest in the spiritual dimensions of leadership and work has exploded. In book clubs and boardrooms, talk shows and seminar rooms, more and more people are coming together in the search for depth and meaning in their work and their lives. While preserving the book's basic story and message, the newly revised edition of Leading with Soul offers much more. Bolman and Deal present insights about the changing nature of work and the new face of workers. They add an entirely new chapter that highlights stories from readers who share their own real experiences with soul at work. At the heart of this groundbreaking book is a contemporary parable, which tells the story of Steve, a dispirited leader in search of something more meaningful in his life than an obsession with the bottom line. Through conversations with Maria?a mysterious sage whose wisdom was forged in her own hard-won business career?Steve unexpectedly discovers the true meaning of leadership. Having rediscovered his own soul, he is able to ignite the spirit of his organization. The Authors Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal pioneered the study of business life and learning in their best-selling book Reframing Organizations (1991) from Jossey-Bass. Bolman is an author, teacher, and consultant who currently holds the Marion Bloch/Missouri Chair in Leadership at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He consults worldwide to corporations, public agencies, universities, and schools. Deal is the Irving R. Melbo Professor of Education at the Rossier School, University of Southern California, and a consultant to business, health care, military, educational, and religious organizations worldwide. He is the coauthor of sixteen books, including the best-selling Corporate Cultures (1983, with A. A. Kennedy) and Managing the Hidden Organization (1994, with W. A. Jenkins).

Synopsis:

This is an updated edition of the best-selling book that first announced the importance of spirit in the workplace. Since its original publication in 1995, Leading with Soul has inspired thousands of readers with its simple message-the heart of leadership lies within the hearts of leaders.

Synopsis:

Since its original publication in 1995, Leading with Soul has inspired thousands of readers. Far ahead of its time, the book bravely revealed the path to leadership to be a very personal journey requiring a knowledge of self and a servant-leader mentality. Now, in this new and revised edition, authors Bolman and Deal address such currrent issues as the changing nature of work, the new face of today's workforce, and the greater need for an infusion of soul in the workplace. They also include real-life stories from readers of the first edition, and answer key questions that those readers raise. As vital as ever, this revisted narrative of an executive and his quest for deeper meaning continues to point the way to a more fulfilling work experience.
