Without question, managing people effectively requires strong leadership. Are these leadership qualities easily teachable? What exactly characterizes good leadership qualities? And what are the significant gender differences between masculine and feminine leadership styles?

Abbot Primate Notker Wolf and Sister Enrica Rosanna have each held significant leadership positions, and based on their real-world experience, they clearly examine and answer these questions. Together they establish common mistakes that most people make and explain what it truly takes to become an effective leader in business, politics, school, and family life. This is a book that is beneficial to everyone, even if the reader is not in a leadership role.

MEDIA REVIEWS
No dry abstract treatment of leadership theories, this insightful compendium articulates the fruit of years of service. Refreshingly they make frequent reference to what they have learned from others and their own mistakes. . . . This book provides inspiration and challenge for business and political leaders as well as for educational administrators, teachers, and parents-all of us really.

Katherine Howard, OSB., St. Benedict's Monastery, St. Joseph, MN, American Benedictine Review
[The Art of Leadership] is a brave endeavor to tell our secular economic and political leaders and educators that they have something to learn about the practice of twenty-first century leadership, from a small rule for beginners in the monastic life. . . . This is a book for sharing in workshops and seminars, amongst co-leaders and professionals wishing to enhance the quality of their own roles in leading people to experience the fullness of life.
Clare Condon, SGS, Tjurunga
Good leadership is an important quality for pastoral ministers, and I would therefore recommend that you read and reread this book, even if only to reaffirm what you may already know. It will certainly challenge some preconceived notions of what makes a good leader. I also recommend this book for anyone who is responsible for the formation of children and young people; the principles outlined will assist them in fostering a sense of integrity as well as nurturing the initial stirrings of good leadership.
Bruce Croteau, Pastoral Music
