Leadership principles from a success of a 450-year-old organization - the Jesuits - are applied to today's corporate world. Effective leadership is crucial to building organizations with staying power. In Heroic Leadership, author Chris Lowney examines organizational principles derived from the history and teachings of the Jesuits and applies them to modern corporate culture. Based on the four core values of self-awareness, ingenuity, love, and heroism, this book identifies practices that sixteenth century priests developed to foster strong leaders and achieve longevity. A Jesuit seminarian turned investment banker, Lowney recognized a tremendous lack of able leaders throughout his seventeen years of multinational management experience. By modeling the Jesuits' success, Lowney shares methods for molding innovative, ambitious leaders in the modern corporate environment. "Entertaining and well researched, this is a must-read for any business leader, and an inspirational read for anyone who wants to be a better human being." --Walter Gubert, chairman of the investment bank, J.P.Morgan "Lowney does a wonderfully engaging job of making clear connections between our current leadership challenges and the principles employed so effectively by the Jesuits." --Edward J. Kelly III, president and CEO, Mercantile Bankshares Corporation longevity. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
