In his latest book, The Soul Of Leadership, author Deepak Chopra guides readers on the path to becoming the kind of leader the world needs.
- In Chopra’s book, he challenges readers to become a leader who not only has vision but has the ability to make that vision a reality.
- The principles taught in The Soul Of Leadership mimic the lessons Chopra has shared with leaders and CEOs over the last eight years.
- Though Chopra has worked alongside leaders in business, he tells readers that these lessons aren’t just for business leaders—they’re for leaders in every aspect of life.
- A leader isn’t just the person in charge of a group or organization. Chopra says, “At the deepest level, a leader is the symbolic soul of a group.”
Why it’s important
Practical leadership extends beyond effectively running a business or managing a company as CEO. Chopra teaches principles that can be applied to everyday life. The outline of Chopra’s book is in the acronym L-E-A-D-E-R-S.
Chopra’s skills to develop in order to become a successful leader are: Look and listen, Emotional Bonding, Awareness, Doing, Empowerment, Responsibility, and Synchronicity.
With these skills developed, Chopra argues that the reader can become a great leader. The most important element, Chopra instructs, is to develop from the level of the soul. From there, leaders can cultivate creativity, intelligence, organizing power, and love, which Chopra says are the most important qualities of a leader.
Chopra is a professor of family medicine at the University of California, San Diego, and works alongside the Gallup Organization as a senior scientist. He has written more than 90 books that have been translated into 43 languages.
