Virtuous Leadership: An Agenda for Personal Excellence9781594172045
By Alexandre Havard
Drawing on the lives of some of the greatest political, intellectual and religious leaders of modern times, and the author’s personal experience, Virtuous Leadership demonstrates that leadership and virtue are not only compatible, they are actually synonymous.
The book defines each of the classical human virtues most essential to leadership (Parts 1 and 2), examines how leaders grow in virtue (Part 3), demonstrates how virtues lead to self-fulfillment (Part 4), and considers the grandeur of the supernatural virtues of faith, hope, and charity and their impact on leadership (Part 5).
The book’s final section, Towards Victory, offers a methodology for the achievement of interior growth tailored to the needs of busy, professional people intent on imbuing their lives with a transcendent purpose. Thus, the aim of Virtuous Leadership is ultimately practical. It is meant to be your guidebook in the quest for excellence.
