Leading With Meaning: Using Covenantal Leadership to Build a Better Organization
St. Martin's Press, 2003 M04 19 - 169 pages
What makes a good leader? How does good leadership impact an organization? Moses Pava's Leading With Meaning argues that meaningful and useful answers to these questions are available in traditional religious and spiritual resources. Pava shows how religion can talk to real world problems by exploring traditional literature that deal with the idea of the biblical covenant and Jewish leadership. Using what can be learned from these in the business world is the key to building leadership based on mutual trust and respect--a covenantal leadership. In the aftermath of the Enron scandal, leadership with a soul is more important than ever before. This book offers the paths of Humanity, of No Illusions, of Integration, of Moral Imagination, of the Role Model, and of Moral Growth as six ways to achieve it. The best teachers have always showed us how to use yesterday's language to solve tomorrow's problems. Moses Pava continues in this tradition and clearly shows us why a covenantal leader is a successful leader.
