Effective leaders use mind, heart, and spirit in their work, and this volume is designed to guide and support leaders in their efforts. With an introduction by Joan V. Gallos-editor of the highly praised Organization Development: A Jossey-Bass Reader-the author list for this invaluable resource reads like the who's who of business leadership.
