$48.99

Hardback
No two authors are better equipped than Bolman and Deal to address and answer the seminal dilemma of our time-the difference between making a living and making a life. They lead the way to discover how to lead a spirited life. --Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of business administration, University of Southern California, and author of Managing the Dream Wonderful lessons about leadership in a very personal story of a relationship between a teacher and a student. It is teaching and storytelling at its best. --James A. Autry, author, Life and Work Bolman and Deal understand that organizations are filled with living, breathing, feeling human beings, people who need more than a paycheck, more than a performance review, more than a promotion. This is a deceptively powerful realization for any leader. --Patrick Lencioni, author, The Five Temptations of a CEO* Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive

- Publisher With the appearance of Leading with Soul in 1995, Terry Deal and Lee Bolman became pioneers in the movement to reconnect work and spirit. Since then, interest in the spiritual dimensions of leadership and work has exploded. In book clubs and boardrooms, talk shows and seminar rooms, more and more people are coming together in the search for depth and meaning in their work and their lives. While preserving the book's basic story and message, the newly revised edition of Leading with Soul offers much more. Bolman and Deal present insights about the changing nature of work and the new face of workers. They add an entirely new chapter that highlights stories from readers who share their own real experiences with soul at work. At the heart of this groundbreaking book is a contemporary parable, which tells the story of Steve, a dispirited leader in search of something more meaningful in his life than an obsession with the bottom line. Through conversations with Maria?a mysterious sage whose wisdom was forged in her own hard-won business career?Steve unexpectedly discovers the true meaning of leadership. Having rediscovered his own soul, he is able to ignite the spirit of his organization. The Authors Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal pioneered the study of business life and learning in their best-selling book Reframing Organizations (1991) from Jossey-Bass. Bolman is an author, teacher, and consultant who currently holds the Marion Bloch/Missouri Chair in Leadership at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He consults worldwide to corporations, public agencies, universities, and schools. Deal is the Irving R. Melbo Professor of Education at the Rossier School, University of Southern California, and a consultant to business, health care, military, educational, and religious organizations worldwide. He is the coauthor of sixteen books, including the best-selling Corporate Cultures (1983, with A. A. Kennedy) and Managing the Hidden Organization (1994, with W. A. Jenkins).
