Virtuous Leadership PDF Summary

Virtuous Leadership PDFAgenda for Personal Excellence

What if leadership is something more about just leading people?

What if it is also about becoming a better person yourself?

In “Virtuous Leadership,” Alexandre Havard digs deep into history to apply some of the findings of the Ancient Greek and Medieval Christian philosophers to modern leadership.

And, commentators say, he does a pretty great job!

Who Should Read “Virtuous Leadership”? And Why?

Unlike most of the leadership books we’ve summarized so far – and there are hundreds and hundreds of them – this one is not about how you can become a good leader, but how you should become a good man leading people to better things and a better world.

“In modern society,” warned Peter Drucker back in his 1973 classic “Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices,” there is no other leadership group but managers. If the managers of our major institutions, and especially of business, do not take responsibility for the common good, no one else can or will.

Havard took this suggestion extremely seriously and developed a whole philosophy out of it.

And his book “Virtuous Leadership” is for anyone believes Drucker’s cautionary notice to be nothing short of a truism.
