Lao Tzu, Marx, the Buddha, Ibsen, Machiavelli — these are just a few of the world’s great thinkers who have weighed in on the subject of leadership over the centuries. Yet, the contemporary student of leadership often overlooks many of these names in favour of more recent theorists hailing from the social sciences. Understanding Leadership: An Arts and Humanities Perspective takes a different angle, employing the works of the great philosophers, authors and artists found in world civilization and presenting an arts and humanities perspective on the study of leadership. The authors build their conceptual framework using The Five Components of Leadership Model, which recognizes the leader, the followers, the goal, the environmental context, and the cultural values and norms that make up the leadership process. Supporting the text are a wealth of case studies which reflect on works such as Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People, Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times, Athol Fugard’s play "Master Harold" . . . and the Boys, Lao Tzu’s poetic work Tao Te Ching, and Antonín Dvořák’s New World Symphony. The authors also introduce studies from various world cultures to particularly illustrate the role cultural values and norms play in leadership. This illuminating framework promotes the multidimensional thinking that is necessary for understanding and problem solving in a complex world. Understanding Leadership: An Arts and Humanities Perspective will be a valuable textbook for both undergraduate and postgraduate leadership students, while leadership professionals will also appreciate the book’s unique liberal arts and cultural approach.

The Tao of Calm is a book for those seekers of peace in the activities of daily life: Harried parents, pressured office workers, teachers, students, and others who feel that there is never enough time for the desired calm to balance their busy lives. These 81 meditations are modeled after the writing of the Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, whose timeless teachings in the book, Tao Te Ching, have survived through the years. In The Tao of Calm, Dr. Pamela Metz stays true to the spirit and structure of the Tao Te Ching while creating a guide for the readers to find a path of calmness in their lives. The author recognizes that many of us live lives of pressure, anxiety and stress, with little time for centering and reflection. In this book, the poetic images of water, mountains, sky, and earth evoke places of inner and outer calm. The Tao of Calm is a book to complement other avenues of spiritual practice such as prayer, retreats, and meditation. It can be turned to again and again for support, renewal and inspiration.
