How to be the very best kind of leader

In the fifth century B.C., the Chinese sage Lao Tzu set down the laws of effective leadership that he had discovered after years of meditation and careful observation. He called his invaluable teaching Tao Te Ching, which translates as 'The Book of How Things Happen', and addressed it to the wisest, most powerful leaders of his day.

Knowing how things happen gives the leader more power and ability than all the degrees and titles the world can offer. This program — featuring comments and anecdotes by bestselling author Dr. Denis Waitley — will help you learn how things happen.

The principles within this program are for anyone who aspires to leadership, whether in business, politics, government, school, church or family. Through a combination of excerpts from the Tao Te Ching, juxtaposed with contemporary examples that illuminate the quotations, The Tao of Leadership instructs listeners in the art of governing through the skillful management of human resources.

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!
