Item description for Leading from Within: Twelve Concepts for Leaders Who Seek a Spiritual Frame of Reference by Thomas E. Beeman & Richard Glenn...
In today's competitive and sometimes cutthroat business world, the concept that a leader can and should govern based on spiritual principles might seem impractical or impossible. In Leading from Within, Thomas Beeman and Richard Glenn make the powerful case that having a spiritual frame of reference can actually benefit companies, but more important, nourish the leaders who shepherd them.
Using examples from their own careers and personal experiences, these two health-care executives outline twelve spiritual concepts that senior management in all industries can use to lead and live by.
Leading from Within speaks to CEOs, executives, senior managers, board members, and anyone seeking to direct an organization while staying focused on what really matters---for themselves and for their companies.
Each chapter starts with an illustrative leadership challenge spotlighting a corporate issue. Beeman and Glenn then introduce the spiritual concept relating to that issue, why it matters to the corporation and individuals, and how it relates to leadership. Sections called "Fireside Chats" present conversations between the two authors in which they use examples from their own experiences to further demonstrate the importance of a spiritual perspective. Personal applications, journal opportunities, and daily spiritual practices for the reader round out the insightful, applicable chapters.

Great read... Nov 9, 2009
I've read many books on Leadership. I have been Vice President of Leadership in a large company and dealt with world leaders. I must say, I really like this book.
As the title conveys, it deals with the internal side of leadership. Character, doing the right thing, imperfection and believing the best in yourself and others. In a time that is "post Enron" and "post bailout" - this is a perfect read. The accomplished authors use a conversational tone that makes it both applicable and warm.
If you are interested in learning how to: - bring out the leader within yourself, - lead others within a work place - act as a leader within your home or community then this is a great book to add to your collection.
The Title Should be "What A Crock" Sep 15, 2009
Don't waste your money on this crock of excrement. The only quotes on the dust jacket are by people indebted to one of the authors for paychecks. There's a good reason some of the examples are of a CEO under fire. Using Biblical scripture to justify being a vain and deceptive leader IS a creative use.
