It says a lot about his appeal that a book recently published by the American Management Association, Lead With Humility: 12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis, is written, not by a devout Catholic but by a Jewish writer who is best known for his books about the management style of long-time General Electric boss Jack Welch. But then the author, Jeffrey A. Krames, points out in his prologue that – as the son of Holocaust survivors – he sees Pope Francis as “the twenty-first century’s answer to the twentieth century’s most malevolent mass murderer”. Krames is also alive to the irony of the chronicler of the successes of one of the most handsomely rewarded business executives ever now turning his hand to the pronouncements of a man who is especially focused on reducing the imbalance in wealth between the richest and the poorest. But he insists that Welch and Pope Francis would agree on the principle that one of the hallmarks of any leader is how he or she leads by example.
