Great read and advice. Still pertinent to today's society.
The Tao of Leadership by John Heider is the most comprehensive common sense, easy to read book one can learn from that if practiced can lead to a sense of personal peace and understanding of humanity. The Tao of Leadership is the closest answer to world peace we may ever have if read and practiced. The Tao of Leadership can be opened up to any page and easily read as all chapters are just a page or two.
To think that this little gem of a book was required reading by one of my professors in college amazes me. The messages inside are simply profound! ¿ as I just found out by rereading this book almost 15 years later. In college, I got it to some degree but not nearly to the degree that it clicked with me now. For some reason I held onto this book and while I was browsing my bookshelf it kind of jumped off at me. It also amazes me that the wisdom in the book the Tao Te Ching written by Chinese sage Lao Tzu around the year 600 BC ¿ the one in which John Heider¿s adaptation was derived ¿ transcends time and is as relevant today as it was then. I say this is a must read for all since we are all leaders of our own lives. Additionally I recommend that you sit with and think about the message in each chapter a bit to give each concept time to soak in a bit. You¿ll be glad you did!
