Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Mindfulness, meditation, and awareness of the power of emotions is helpful in every area of life, and now, after 55 books, Chopra offers a succinct guide that employs his principles and specifically addressing managers. With a focus on spirituality, Chopra analyzes problems faced in the workplace and offers guidance for reversing negative attitudes and fostering a harmonious office environment. The examples he gives are realistic, his analogies are often compelling, and the exercises he outlines are always clear and helpful. Chopra has coined a terrific acronym-L.E.A.D.E.R.S.-for his leadership system, starting with "Look and Listen" and ending with "Synchronicity." And the stories of two leaders who made millions following the deepest inclinations of their souls (which Chopra argues is the only path to true success) make this leadership system appear deceptively simple to employ. Its basis is the idea that true leaders use their power to achieve visionary goals, but a leader must also have integrity. Chopra brings deep meaning to the discussion, rebranding success as something far beyond financial gain, which seems wise in light of recent economic events.

Review

“I greatly enjoyed Deepak's newest book The Soul of Leadership.  From the chapter on synchronicity on, I couldn't put it down.  It's got so many quality ideas that it must be read a second time. The book inspired me to become a better leader.”
—George Zimmer, Men's Wearhouse
 
The Soul of Leadership unfolds as an exceptional guide for remembering how to access the peace and clarity the soul brings to any vision, decision, action, or non-action. Deepak Chopra’s latest book lights the way to 21st century leadership, where consciousness, love and compassion redefine the locus of power in relationships and organizations. A truly aware leader in touch with his or her soul will always be in the flow of the world. Like a tuned-in kayaker in white water, when you are in the middle of it, you continually contribute your own creativity and good intentions to the overall flow, while inspiring and empowering your team to do the same.”
—John Mackey, co-CEO Whole Foods Market
 
“Leadership begins at home and in the heart. Deepak Chopra offers not only a blueprint, a step by step guide to releasing the power of leadership within each of us, but a powerful call to action. By evolving toward an ever higher level of spiritual awareness, we have the capacity to change our lives and the world itself. An insightful, inspirational and much needed book.”
—William Cohen, Former United States Secretary of Defense

"The Soul of Leadership" is a guidebook that not only encourages us to step up and take a leadership role in our lives and our communities, it shows us exactly how to do it. Deepak Chopra based this book on a course that he teaches at Kellogg's School of Business at Northwestern University. We may not be so lucky as to be able to take his class at this prestigious school, but we can read the book, and benefit from the wisdom in it. I'd like to see every college student have this book as required reading. The potential for greatness is within each one of us. By accessing it we help ourselves, and the world. Isn't that what we need right now?

This book is inspired by a course that Deepak Chopra teaches at Kellogg's School of Business at Northwestern University. It is full of great wisdom and practical advice.

Chopra points out that a great leader has a vision that inspires others, and the ability manifest this vision. Where does this ability to manifest a vision come from? It comes from knowing your spiritual self and from being aligned with and rooted in a place of inner peace, love and joy on the level of the soul. Both emotional and spiritual intelligence are needed. Additionally a leader needs to understand and know how to meet the different levels of needs within the group.

A great leader leads the group towards evolution instead of stagnation, towards an increase in the group's consciousness instead of a decrease, towards expansion instead of constriction, and towards serving the souls purpose instead of the opposite. Chopra also warns against leadership traps such as: obsessing over risk, avoiding problems, not being in tune with the groups needs, not taking responsibility for bad decisions and their consequences, blaming others and making excuses, craving approval and reassurance, not delegating authority - or delegating but still keeping a tight grip on all decisions, looking out more for yourself than the group, only listening to a few select voices, lying or covering up the truth.

The book guides you with Chopra's L-E-A-D-E-R-S formula:
-Look and Listen both inside and outside of you on the level of body, mind heart, and the soul, and ask the right questions.
-Emotionally bond with employees and customers and form real relationships. Employees need to feel they are truly part of the business, so deep motivation, and a sense of purpose and loyalty can form.

As a great fan of Deepak's I was thrilled to read this book. He brings the elements of leadership to the fore as a spiritual as well as practical issue. You cannot separate a leader from what he or she is like on the inside and what their foundation is because out of that flows their decisions and actions.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in leadership as well as to all managers in the business world. There is much here to provoke your thinking.

You can never go wrong with Deepak Chopra. He uses a very simple and easy style so you don't feel lost in gobbly-gook talk like some other new age speakers have.

I rated five (5) stars "The Soul Of Leadership" because with it Deepak Chopra makes and in depth penetration of the human soul with the purpose that the interested reader that follows the book guide himself through the different relationships in his life experiences.
The potential reader should not be confused by the title of the book and think that it is for persons that are currently considered leaders according to our usual leaders standards. The book goes far beyond the current leaders standards and asserts that synchronicity of the soul is the hidden support of real visionary leaders which any of us can attain revising and following our beliefs accordingly.
I strongly recommend reading and absorbing in depth the soul nourishment offered by Deepak Chopra with this book.

In his latest book, Deepak shows us how to use our greatness to benefit the world... to release the power of leadership within ourselves using consciousness, compassion and love (which to me, is always the key). Like all his works, The Soul of Leadership offers techniques to attain a higher level of spiritual awareness, in this book, to change not only our own lives, but our endeavors, our world.

If you follow Deepak's guidance, you'll learn to define your own values so you can be the "symbolic soul" of your community or business, and have access to the creativity, smarts, power and love to be an enlightened leader. We so need more of these in the world today. Read this book and join them!

Namaste! Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries
