Description - Faith at Work by Donal Dorr

In a world that questions more and more the quality of leadership in churches and politics, Donald Dorr proposes a spirituality that supports authentic leadership. Addressing primarily those who lead volunteer or non-governmental agencies and religious organizations, the author holds that they should provide a model of effective, humane leadership for the business world, public service, and politics.Dorr focuses on scriptural sources for a spirituality of leadership, and draws insights from various spiritual traditions in the history of the church. He emphasizes the surprisingly strong and consistent democratic tradition within Christianity. He also draws on key elements in the thinking of political philosophers and management theorists.In the heart of the book the author describes four different kinds of leaders and outlines five styles or manners in which good leadership is exercised. Dorr concludes with a discussion of techniques for individual and communal discernment and the use of intuition in decision making.Donald Dorr is a missionary who has worked for many years in leadership training and conducting spirituality workshops. He is the author of eight previous books, including the prize-winning Spirituality and Justice.
