The Dalai Lama is a monk and a spiritual leader who has both feet planted firmly in the real world. Not content with being one of the world’s most recognizable religious figures, he advocates for social and economic change through the application of Buddhist principles. His collaboration and 10 years of conversation with management consultant Laurens van den Muyzenberg – clearly reported here – offer a blueprint for being a better leader and a more satisfied person, and for contributing to solving world problems through integrity, respect and sensitivity toward others. In this book, the Dalai Lama uses wise practicality to teach conscious leadership and to urge people to follow their instincts for good. getAbstract recommends these teachings to those who are interested in how spiritual concepts apply to leadership and business.
