Description : In this well informed, insightful and comprehensive study, Mario Fernando critically explores the complex and multiform interplay of management theory and practice, personal biographies, theologies of faith and cultural dynamics in order to elaborate and advance a coherent theory of spiritual leadership. George Gotsis and Zoe Kortezi, Entrepreneurship and Innovation In this example of science and theory meeting emerging reality, Mario Fernando delves into the complex dimensions of the interplay of the science of management, theologies of faith, and the dynamics of culture to first understand and then construct and advance a theory of spiritual leadership. With real world insights and reflections from himself and others, he addresses theory to practice implications and cautions against creating just another fad. This insightful and thought-provoking book provides a timely read and focus for reflection for organizational leaders concerned with success in the new age economy and global society, and who seek a path to understand their own personal and pragmatic spiritual leadership grounding. Gary D. Geroy, Colorado State University, US The book will be an important contribution to the literature and will certainly open up some new avenues of research and inquiry. Ralph L. Piedmont, Loyola College in Maryland, US Although interest in workplace spirituality continues to soar, the literature and empirical research on non-Western, non-Christian spirituality in entrepreneurship and leadership is almost non-existent. Mario Fernando s unique study fills the gap in the literature, exploring cross-cultural and religious distinctions of the contemporary meaning and enactment of spirituality in organizations. Case studies of thirteen influential, spiritually motivated Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and Muslim entrepreneurs are used to explore the significant impact of religion upon the management and leadership of an organization. The book concludes that although each entrepreneur s outward practice of spiritual leadership conformed to personal religious beliefs, these practices had two common aims: a connection with self, others and/or an ultimate reality, and a need to direct and motivate self and/or others to develop an organizational culture founded on a sense of shared community. This unique and fascinating work will strongly appeal to entrepreneurship, leadership and business and management researchers and scholars with a particular interest in the interplay between entrepreneurship and spiritual leadership.

Description : In exploring the spiritual dimensions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life and writings, this new book not only fills a crucial gap in Bonhoeffer studies but it also brings to the fore those aspects of his thought that can inform and inspire moral leadership today. The Cost of Moral Leadership probes the spirituality of this modern Christian martyr and shows how his spiritual life formed him into an exceptional moral leader in a period known for grievous immorality. Geffrey Kelly and F. Burton Nelson explore Bonhoeffer's spirituality in the context of his life story, his work for social justice, his Christocentric theology, his emphasis on discipleship, his preaching, and his prolific writing.
