Other than an occasional quote from a notable Catholic, there is very little here that connects tenets the Catholic faith to the practice of leadership. Likewise, there is only one substantive reference to Robert Greenleaf's "Servant Leadership." In sum then, the subtitle "An Introduction to Catholic Servant Leadership" is really dishonest.

I used to roll my eyes when I thought of leadership. I can't help it. Years in FFA and then as a full-fledged overachiever in college left me burnt out and with a bad taste in my mouth about leadership. Isn't "leadership" just a code word for "getting people to do more and more and MORE"?

Well, as it turns out, no, it's not. Being a leader doesn't mean being on the edge of overcommitted. It isn't another name for boss's pet.

I started to learn this, I think, at about the halfway point of my master's program. Maybe it was having to juggle all that reading or maybe it was the experiences of all of the group projects we did. (Ahh, the good ole days of b-school. I'm getting the starts of a caffeine attack just thinking about it...)

When I started Warneka's book, I was afraid. I wanted to like it...but I was quite sure it would be more of the fuzzy-overworked-impossible medicine I had rejected from other leadership materials. I was pretty sure he had put a Catholic moniker on concepts that had nothing, in my mind, to do with leadership.

I was gloriously, wonderfully, joyfully...WRONG.

Warneka approaches leadership in a way that reminds me of Cesar Milan (of Dog Whisperer fame and whose book I'll be reading soon) or Dr. Ray Guarendi (whose book captured me a few months ago). It's not a long book, because Warneka doesn't beat around the bush or use fancy phrasing.

I don't know a thing about martial arts, and I've never heard of Aikido. But I know that this little book has changed my approach to leadership and has made me pay attention to making a habit of Catholic leadership.

Peaceful Leader is excellent reinforcement for the teacher who wants to be a better student and the student who wants to be a better teacher. No matter your faith or discipline if you are truely interested in being universal in your works and actions I recommend opening yourself to Mr. Warneka's interpretations. This is a great read for those who's attention span is limited as the book is easy to cover quickly and is more enlightening each time you read it. Another useful tool in my journey that has value far above the monetary cost. I am truely grateful for the opportunity to read this.
