Summary When Fortune announced its list of the World's Greatest Leaders, the top spot was awarded--not to a captain of industry--but to the new pontiff. In the year since his election, Pope Francis earned that accolade ... and more. He has achieved the remarkable: breathed life into an aging institution, reinvigorated a global base, and created real hope for the future. How did a man who spent his life laboring in slums far from the Vatican manage to do this and so quickly? The answer lies in his humility--and the simple principles that spring from it. This book explores 12 of these principles and shows how leaders and managers can adapt them for the workplace with equally impressive results. They include: don't stand over your employees--sit down with them; avoid insularity; don't judge--assess; take care of people, not lobbies; go where you are needed; temper ideology with pragmatism; and, don't change--reinvent! -- Edited summary from book
Collects twelve lessons in leadership from Pope Francis, that provides readers with a way to become compassionate, authentic, and effective leaders
