Answering to a Higher Authority – Publisher’s Weekly
When looking for guidance from successful leaders, it makes sense to examine the practices of the man who runs what is widely assumed to be the wealthiest institution in the world—the Catholic Church. In September, AMACOM will publish Lead With Humility: 12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis by Jeffrey A. Krames. AMACOM senior editor Stephen Power deems the title “the rare book where every element is ideal. The author, who’s written successful books on Jack Welch and Donald Rumsfeld, knows exactly how to pull out the most useful lessons from the Pope’s thoughts and actions. The subject, the Pope, is demonstrating the type of leadership everyone dreams of: kind, helpful, and meaningful, not just concerned with those at the top. On top of that, there’s enormous foreign rights potential, given the success abroad of books by Jeffrey and about Pope Francis.
