Heroic Leadership : Best Practices from a 450-Year-Old Company That Changed the World
by Chris Lowney




Overview -
Author Chris Lowney offers leadership lessons from the Jesuits, the renowned religious order whose originality and expertise have stirred admiration for nearly five centuries. Lowney, a former Jesuit and investment banker, shows how the Jesuits have grappled successfully with the same challenges that test great companies today: forging seamless multinational teams, motivating inspired performance, remaining "change ready" and strategically adaptable. The Jesuits eschewed a flashy leadership style in favor of a holistic approach, focusing on four unique values: self-awareness, ingenuity, love, and heroism. Lowney explores the four principles in detail, illustrating each with anecdotes from Jesuit history. He examines the Jesuit success formula of attacking real-world opportunities with real-world strategies, showing how their formula can be used today to practice effective, whole-person leadership.
