Confucius on Leadership
A path to effective leadership using the wisdom of the ancient philosopher
Few things are more important than the quality and credibility of leaders, as they play a vital role in every aspect of our lives, yet strong leadership is a difficult skill to master. Good leaders must learn not only to manage, analyze, and appraise, but also to encourage, improve, and inspire. Here, a leadership training expert explains how Confucian philosophy can help one become a better leader. He demonstrates how, far from merely being interesting ideas from centuries ago, Confucius's sayings, or Analects, can help readers to develop all aspects of leadership ability--from communication and creativity to motivation and decision-making. Whether one already has a team or an organization, or has aspirations to build one, this unique combination of ancient and modern wisdom will help build the skills needed to be the best leader possible.
