Ask a dozen people what makes a soulful leader, and you will probably get a dozen different answers. In The Soul of a Leader Echoes, Eileen Timmins, Ph.D., and Alicia M. Straughter, Ph.D. intuitively and succinctly define the importance of soulfulness in an organizational leader and reveal the leadership model the world desperately needs now more than ever: servant leadership.
Through the stories in this book, drawn from interviews with dozens of select CEOs, physicians, pastors, principals, military personnel, and nonprofit and organizational leaders, the authors created a recipe for identifying, cultivating, and becoming a true c-suite soulful leader who grows and helms successful organizations.
The book explores the remarkable real-life stories of top leaders — ordinary people who weave their spirituality into their leadership to create an extraordinary impact on their organizations, leading them to outperform competitors and achieve success. By unifying the culture, maximizing human potential, and aligning the organization around a common set of principles, soulful leaders engender a competitive advantage, arguably more powerful than any other.
