In this book the writer who is Deeper Chopra laid his focus on one of the most important life skill, which is leadership However Chopra s definition of leadership does not only include those individuals with special attributes, but he views leadership as a potential skill to any person who can get inspiration from his soul to become a leader He believes that being a successful leader requires evolving passion to what you do The book is divided into three parts in the first part he defines the letters of the acronym LEADERS , the second part gives a real example of individuals who used their soul to emerge as great leader and the third part outlines ten principles of leadership He defines the key aspects of Leadership as, L Look Listen, E Emotional bonding, A Awareness, D Doing, E Empowerment, R Responsibility and S Synchronicity Although Chopra has interesting perspective of leadership, the soul part was a bit confusing I did not see my self communicating with his ideas, however I liked the way he guides the reader step by step, identifying even the hidden strengths such as emotional intelligence in the way to emerge as a successful leader I truly enjoyed the part that talks about Jeremy Moon s experience in leadership, it was really inspiring and it gave me a real sense of what it takes to build and lead a flourishing business.

Very very good read, a breath of fresh air from the majority of business leadership titles I need to warn you, this is not for everyone, I am afraid many would misjudge this book if they have not read Chopra before I personally could have done book clubs for it My former HR boss let me borrow it, and it was a very pleasant read. This was decent information being delivered, and while Deepak s words themselves can often be inspiring, his accent actually makes the audiobook less valuable He is difficult to follow At the same time, I was expectingfrom the guts of the book These ideas seemed to be on a very basic maybe obvious level I felt like I was finishing it just to get it over with. I almost hate to admit it Chopra has birthed so many cliches but I really enjoyed this book Not only that, I was inspired by it So much so that I m considering picking up copies for my coworkers It s not that he says anything new it s that he is very good at summarizing eternal truths and creating action lists out of them, without dumbing them down Highly recommended for anyone who is wrestling with questions of power and leadership, and wants a deeper approach to handling the role of a leader with grace and integrity. Not only is this a wonderful book for upper management, it provided some very interesting ideas and exercises for becoming the manager of your life, or whatever your sphere of influence is This book is so much better than most of the business management books out there, and I think every manager should be required to read it
