Description - The Leadership Dojo by Richard Strozzi-Heckler
The author writes, "Bookstores are filled with stories of great leaders and what they did in certain situations, but nothing about how it's learned." This new work from the best-selling author and international consultant meets this market need with a practical, original examination of centuries-old traditions of shugyo, or self-cultivation. Shugyo is one of many key principles the author applies to develop the individual responsibility, social commitment, and moral and spiritual vision it takes to lead with authority and efficacy. "The Leadership Dojo" is the first book of its kind to base business and management strength on integral body awareness.The book began as a meditation on three key questions the author asked in seminars with leaders from, among many others, AT and T, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, the Navy, the Army, and the Marines: What does a leader do? What are the character values most essential to exemplary leadership? How do you teach these values?
Drawing upon the wisdom of ages from Plato to the "Bhagavad-Gita", from Thucydides to the "Abidharma", the book asserts that leadership skills can be learned and proceeds to teach by example, recounting his countless first-hand experiences training the most influential decision-makers in international business and military roles today. The grounded foundation that results from Strozzi-Heckler's strategies establishes a Leadership Presence, the platform from which ethical action can be taken with compassion and pragmatic wisdom.
