All of us have the potential to become leaders. Very few of us are leaders all the time, but we all encounter moments in our lives when we can and should lead others. Few people set out knowingly to become leaders; rather, they see a need and they find a way of taking on the challenge, and often others choose to follow their example.

Based on the highly praised lecture that he has given to tens of thousands of people around the world, Dr. Sanjiv Chopra's Leadership by Example gives you memorable stories that illustrate the ten core principles of effective leadership. Drawing on his experience as a dean at Harvard Medical School as well as on the lives and teachings of great leaders throughout history, this inspiring book will help guide you to becoming a leader in your own life.

The book gives you the idea (in fact 10 principles ) that ANYONE can become a leader in their own lives. It gives many examples of people who decided to lead - and outlines ten principles that leaders use - some things as simple as never giving up on a Dream - "Dream" being a principle.

This is a beautiful book chock full of compelling stories and examples from history and across the globe. Based on a successful lecture and in response to many requests. Dr. Chopra discusses many of the principles every leader should have including purpose, humility and the ability to dream. Very compact - perfect for the commute!
