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.
