The Four Virtues of a Leader
When we see leaders from the outside, we are often focused on their power, authority, and status. But from the inside, true leaders succeed through cultivating the same essential qualities found in the classic hero’s journey. With The Four Virtues of a Leader, top executive coach Eric Kaufmann presents a must-read guide to help you awaken and amplify the fundamental competencies that every successful leader embodies. “A leader influences others through their presence, actions, and communication,” writes Kaufmann. “That means each of us, no matter what our title or job, can be a leader.” Here he offers powerful insights and field-tested guidance for developing the four cornerstones of good leadership: Focus that combines self-awareness with vision; Courage to move toward what you’d rather avoid; Grit for persevering through fatigue and discouragement toward your long-term goals; and the Faith to overcome doubt and stay fully committed to your work.
