The Four Virtues of a Leader: Navigating the Hero’s Journey Through Risk to Results

Eric Kaufmann. Sounds True, $17.95 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-1-62203-727-8
What leadership consultant Kaufmann lacks in novelty, he makes up for in enthusiasm and encouragement, challenging readers to “embolden your path—your leadership as a hero’s journey—by asking yourself a few simple, but profound, questions.” His guide to leadership philosophy and psychology is intended for those who seek self-improvement and leadership acumen. Evolving into a great leader takes both thought and action, and Kaufmann addresses this formidable task with the titular four virtues: focus (what are you working on?), courage (what are you afraid of?), grit (what are you sustaining?), and faith (what are you yielding?). The method requires substantial self-examination and self-discipline, relying largely on the power of thought. His interest in Zen shows in his strong emphasis on mindfulness. Earnest, encouraging, and thoughtful, this meditation on the soul of a leader will help readers looking for a path to self-understanding along their journey to greatness. (Sept.)
