Born out of a decade of discussion and collaboration between The Monk and the Management Consultant - His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Laurens van den Muyzenberg - The Leader's Way represents the synthesis of East and West and provides an inspiring manifesto for business change.

The world today faces many challenges. While our total wealth has increased enormously and we benefit from technological miracles, billions of people are living in abject poverty, we face the threat of environmental disaster, and even those in prosperous nations feel insecure about the future.

Addressing these problems requires a different kind of leadership which sees things as they really are and resolves them in a holistic way. That is what The Leader's Way offers - a manifesto for change which can have an impact at every level, from the individual to the global.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As a study of Buddhism and its relevance to globalisation, it has a lot to say. It applies the concepts of Buddhism to business: decision-making using concepts such as 'the Right Way', interdependence and impermanence. To simplify, it's a Hippocratic, do-no-harm creed: companies should have integrity, leader's mindfulness, to act for the greatest good. Many reader's will value it. There's much to learn, nothing to offend just leave your cynicism at the door. * Director Magazine *
This book examines capitalism and Buddhism in a fascinating way. Everybody in business who is seriously interested in responsible entrepreneurship will recognise the issues. The book adds a valuable dimension to the values and ethical standards that form the basis for responsible leadership in business. -- Prof. C.O. Herkstroeter, former CEO of Shell and Chairman of the Board of ING.
