The author writes, "Bookstores are filled with stories of great leaders and what they did in certain situations, but nothing about how it's learned." This new work from the best-selling author and international consultant meets this market need with a practical, original examination of centuries-old traditions of shugyo, or self-cultivation. Shugyo is one of many key principles the author applies to develop the individual responsibility, social commitment, and moral and spiritual vision it takes to lead with authority and efficacy. "The Leadership Dojo" is the first book of its kind to base business and management strength on integral body awareness.The book began as a meditation on three key questions the author asked in seminars with leaders from, among many others, AT and T, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, the Navy, the Army, and the Marines: What does a leader do? What are the character values most essential to exemplary leadership? How do you teach these values? Drawing upon the wisdom of ages from Plato to the "Bhagavad-Gita", from Thucydides to the "Abidharma", the book asserts that leadership skills can be learned and proceeds to teach by example, recounting his countless first-hand experiences training the most influential decision-makers in international business and military roles today. The grounded foundation that results from Strozzi-Heckler's strategies establishes a Leadership Presence, the platform from which ethical action can be taken with compassion and pragmatic wisdom.

Recensioner i media

"Strozzi-Heckler, a martial arts expert, former marine, and executive coach for AT&T and Microsoft, provides a decidedly mystical primer on leadership. Effective managers, he says, must cultivate their inner "warrior spirit"--becoming, a la George Washington in the Revolutionary War, the physical embodiment of their organizations. Unorthodox, sure, but it worked against the British."<br>"--U.S. News & World Report, "New and forthcoming books for the executive's nightstand <br>"In "The Leadership Dojo, "Richard Strozzi-Heckler draws on his vast coaching experience and encyclopedic knowledge of somatics to pinpoint the true source of leadership: the commitments we hold; the values underlying them; and our presence in the world--through body, language, and action--as we pursue those commitments. "The Leadership Dojo" describes concrete, straightforward practices that nurture extraordinary leadership by deepening our awareness of the commitments we represent, the purposes we embrace, and how we carry ourselves as physical beings. The result is a pragmatic, powerful, and promising approach, worthy of study by anyone seeking to educate, train, or develop leaders to do well and do good at the same time."<br>--James N. Baron, William S. Beinecke Professor of Management, Yale School of Management <br>"The teams that I led using this training met goals on time and under budget. Team members became effective leaders who went on to bigger roles and responsibilities. I would not dream of leading a team without relying on the teachings of Richard Strozzi-Heckler. It would be like skiing without the snow."<br>--Nancy J. Hutson, Senior Vice President, Pfizer Research & Development <br>"In this day andage, the question confronting all sectors is how to develop exemplary leaders who embody their message. "The Leadership Dojo" goes far beyond the traditional concept of leadership development, illuminating fresh practices to guide this quest. A must-read for leaders and leadership development professionals alike."<br>--Richard J. Leider, Founder, The Inventure Group, bestselling author of "Repacking Your Bags" and "The Power of Purpose" <br>""The Leadership Dojo: Build Your Future Foundation as an Exemplary Leader "by Richard Strozz-Heckler bases business and management strength on integral body awareness."<br>"--Publishers Weekly"
