By Dr. Sanjiv Chopra with David Fisher

An accessible and inspiring guide to good leadership based on a popular lecture that Dr. Chopra has presented to thou

sands. Very few of us are leaders all the time, in everything we do, but all of us can become a leader in specific situations. In a committee, in business, at a social club or at a religious institution, we all find a time in our lives when we can lead. Few people set out knowingly to become leaders, rather they see a need and they find a way of dealing with it, and often others choose to follow their example. Based on a talk that he has given to more than 60,000 people in at least seven countries, the ‘Leadership’mnemonic that Dr. Chopra explains in Leadership by Example is as follows: L – listen well. E – empathy. A – attitude.D – dreams and decisiveness. E – effectiveness. R – resilience.S – a sense of purpose. H – humility and humour. I – integrity and imagination. P – principles, and willingness to pack other peoples parachutes. Drawing from his experience as Faculty Dean for Continuing Education for Harvard Medical School as well as the writings and lives of great leaders throughout history, this easy- to- read, inspiring book will serve as a reminder and a guide to becoming leaders in our own lives.
