Leadership Principles for Lasting Success Leadership makes great companies, but few of us truly understand how to turn ourselves and others into great leaders. One company--the Jesuits--pioneered a unique formula for molding leaders and in the process built one of history's most successful companies. In this groundbreaking book, Chris Lowney reveals the leadership principles that have guided the Jesuits for more than 450 years: self-awareness, ingenuity, love, and heroism. Lowney shows how these same principles can make each of us a dynamic leader in the twenty-first century. "Entertaining and well researched, this is a must-read for any business leader, and an inspirational read for anyone who wants to be a better human being." --Walter Gubert, chairman of the investment bank, J. P. Morgan "Lowney does a wonderfully engaging job of making clear the connections between our current leadership challenges and the principles employed so effectively by the Jesuits." --Edward J. Kelly III, president and ceo, Mercantile Bankshares Corporation "In this absorbing, lucid book, Lowney . . . explores how the Jesuits have successfully grappled with challenges that test great companies. Reflective businesspeople of faith will find Lowney's insights a breath of fresh air." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review "This 450-year-old institution [seems] as current today as it was four centuries ago. Lowney shows us how every employee can and should be a leader and that love-driven leadership does work." --Richard K. Green, former president and COO, Blistex, Inc."This informative, fascinating book tells how Jesuits produced both outstanding individual leaders and a culture of leadership. This is a book to be enjoyed, pondered, and put into practice." --John W. Padberg, S.J., director, Institute of Jesuit Sources CIP

Great book! 31 août 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A thought-provoking yet straightforward book of value to anyone interested in how to make an organization more successful. Whether or not you care for the spiritual aspects of the Jesuits, their extraordinary success from the earliest days and the principles which drove them apply directly to the modern day enterprise and offer lessons that counter many current management techniques. After all, a group that taught its members to be flexible in the face of rapid change, to set ambitious goals, to think globally, and to take risks seems to have had in mind the challenges facing many managers today -- yet those modes of thinking were developed more than 450 years ago. Not author's thunder, but any 10-person start-up with no experience in education which had 30 colleges up and running in a decade -- without modern day communications or transportation -- and then surpassed its competitors to become the largest of its kind, 450 years later boasting 21,000 professionals -- bears taking a look at in an era of 3 year wonders. How did they do it? Read the book.

"The greatest enterprise in the world." That describes my 22 mars 2004
Par David D. Begley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Jesuit high school and college. But then again I think just about every Jesuit school graduate would say the same thing.
Ten men, no money, no business plan and within ten years they had thirty schools established and running.
And not only has the Jesuit order survived for over four hundred years (after its abolition by the Pope everywhere but in Russia), but it has thrived. There is simply no comparable for-profit corporation with that same history of longevity and success.
Igantius Loyola set out some clear policies that survive and work to this day.
Almost thirty years out from high school graduation I value my Jesuit education more than ever. What I've found is that the ability to reason, calculate, write and think is much more rare than I previously thought. To this I have the Society of Jesus to thank. I really can't imagine my life without my Jesuit education.
The Jesuit high school course of study is essentially the same for my son's class of 2007 as it was for my class of 1975. But it should be noted that the Jesuits have adapted and requirements in Greek and Latin are no longer there. The key here is some foreign language is essential for a high school student.
Money can come and go but education lasts and that can't be taken away from you.
There were lots of things I didn't know about the Jesuits that I learned in this book. Looking back I can see where these principles were applied. Things such as "only the best teachers."
There is a definite Jesuit "way we do things" which is consistent at all Jesuit schools.
The references to "The Spiritual Exercises" were helpful and enlightening.
Some of the historical discussion about Paraguay, China and India was either unclear or slightly too long. Jim Rogers of "Adventure Capitalist" said it best about Paraguay. He described how the Jesuits had created a civilization there in the jungle and once the Jesuits were kicked out of the country,it relapsed and hasn't been the same since.
The readership for this book isn't limited to Jesuit school alumni or even those in business. If you want to lead a better and more productive life look at Lowney's distillation of Loyola's leadership principles, apply them and learn. ...

A Different Kind of Leadership 7 août 2003
Par George M. Simon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Leaders need followers, right? This engagingly written book warns us that it is precisely this kind of thinking that has produced the vacuum of leadership that has recently rocked corporate America. Lowney finds a profoundly different way to think about leadership in the early history of the Jesuits. Through fascinating stories about Jesuit astronomers, linguists, explorers, and high school teachers, he illuminates a kind of leadership in which "everyone leads, and everyone is leading all the time," and in which leadership consists of unlocking the leadership potential in others. Certainly this is a book for "professional" leaders, like corporate managers. However, it is equally, if not more, a book for those of us whose leadership will always occur in less conspicuous venues.

A Leadership Approach That Has Survived the Test of Time 17 avril 2005
Par Thomas M. Loarie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Chris Lowney has written a beauty of book bringing into focus leadership principles first implemented 450 years ago when Jesuit founder, St. Ignatius Loyola, established a leadership culture that led to one of the great organizational success stories in history. And along with the lessons on leadership, Lowney's readers also get a great story on several important chapters in world history.

Loyola builds on love driven leadership, an approach to leadership based on the notion that everyone has leadership potential, and true leaders unlock that potential in others. The how of unlocking potential is rooted in an orientation to "greater love than fear." This notion of leadership fits well with the growing trend of "people centered leadership" as evidenced by best selling books authored by Pat Lencioni, John Maxwell, and others. This is a welcomed change from former corporate speak where sports figures and a towel snapping, take-no-prisoners model took center stage

Lowney details Loyola's four pillars of success: self-awareness; ingenuity; love; and, heroism. The first step to leadership is self-leadership which springs from personal beliefs and attitudes. Throughout the book, Lowney highlights Loyola's belief that self-awareness is linked to leadership showing through example how leaders thrive by understanding who they are and what they value, by becoming aware of unhealthy blind spots or weaknesses that can derail them, and by cultivating the habit of continuous self-reflection and learning.

Loyola's spiritually based approach to leadership also identifies attachments in life as obstacles to leading. He also underscores how ingenuity disposes people not to just think out of the box but to live outside the box.

"Heroic Leadership" is organized around the following chapters:
Of Jesuit's and J.P. Morgan
What Leaders Do
The Jesuits
Leadership Role Models
"To Order One's Life"
The Spiritual Exercises
"The Whole World Becomes Our House"
"Refuse No Talent, Nor Any Man of Quality"
"An Uninterrupted Life of Heroic Deeds"
"Exceptional Daring Was Needed"
"The Way We Do Things"

A strong leader relishes the opportunity to continue learning about self and the world and looks to new discoveries and interests. And real leaders - real heros - find fulfillment, meaning, and, yes, even success by shifting their gaze beyond self-interest and serving others. And they become greater - enhanced as persons - by focusing on something greater than self-interest alone.

This is a book that most will use as a reference for years to come.

Leading by examples. 14 octobre 2003
Par Paul Kiernan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Truly refreshing. Mr. Lowney blows through cliches about leadership and infuses the subject with life. At the same time, he reclaims from the clutches of bookstore preachers serious discussion about spirituality in daily life.
Mr. Lowney begins from the undeniable premise that there is a lack of genuine leaders in our business world and our civic life. He finds in the history of the Jesuits numerous individuals -- who would never be labeled "leaders" by Forbes or Time -- who have exerted tremendous positive influence on the world. Starting with less-than-nothing, the Jesuit "company" quickly became the brand standard for higher education, science and language. It remains a powerful international force. Its impact is the envy of every other "multinational."
Mr. Lowney's argument is that the secret of their success is no secret at all: If you carefully recruit and train leaders at all levels, your organization will flourish. Those leaders must have self-awareness and discipline . . . and love. For it is the honest concern about your brothers and sisters that reflects leadership and elevates the shared enterprise.
But like the Jesuits, Mr. Lowney does not settle for platitutes and formulas. His book challenges you to examine your own life. For those of us mid-career, the book is nothing less than a call to renewal and a reminder that Loyola was older than we are now when he started this whole thing. The book extends a warm and positive encouragement to reinvest in yourself so that you can invest in others.
Heroic Leadership is the product of deep reading and deeper thinking into its subject. But it is written with a brisk and lively voice that is never preachy. Think instead of that teacher who first got you excited about learning and who gave you a glimpse of what you could become. If "empowering" weren't such an overused term, it would fully apply to this book. So consider the book "refreshing" -- it is bright, different, rejuvenating, bracing, and nourishing.
