The future of leadership

What can a Pope teach the world (teach me) about leadership? If you asked the question at a bar, on the street or at a sporting event, the first reaction might be to say the Pope is a reference point for theology but not leadership. Upon deeper reflection and investigation, however, it is clear that each Pope in modern history is among the most influential leaders of his time. This book celebrates and summarizes the leadership lessons and teachings of Pope Benedict XVI. As one of the Catholic intellectual giants of the 20th century, he provides us with a wealth of lived examples, speeches and writings that exhibit what he thinks of leadership. Above all, he helps us taste and savor the leadership of the heart of Jesus Christ (the source and foundation for true leadership). Though he is often seen as a ‘bridge’ or ‘pause’ between two charismatic popes (St John Paul II and Pope Francis), Emeritus Pope Benedict the XVI gives us inspiring, Gospel-based leadership lessons. May this book be a springboard and motivation for you to commit your life to lead like Christ who came not to be served but to serve and give his life for us.

Solid ideas for a fluid world

How should I live today? What type of partner should I seek out? What can I tolerate in my partner and what should I not? Is there a type of job that would lead me to unhappiness? When I travel, I see in many airports and stores many books that have the most recent secret, the formula, the latest method, the sure steps, the novel philosophy that just came out of the oven. Why? Why don't we learn from what already worked? Why not listen to He who has brought us wisdom from afar? As the book of Ecclesiastes reads: “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ec 1:9). As a wise friend added: all wisdom is summarized in a few strokes, four or five fundamental rules. That's it. Keep it simple. Less is more!

Ideas sólidas para un mundo líquido

¿Cómo vivir hoy? ¿Qué tipo de pareja buscar? ¿Qué cosas tolerar en ella y cuáles no? ¿Hay algún tipo de trabajo que si lo elijo me llevará por un camino de infelicidad? Al viajar, veo en los aeropuertos tanto libro con la fórmula mágica más reciente, el último método, el proceso seguro, la filosofía novedosa y recién salida del horno. ¿Por qué?¿Por qué no tomar de lo que ya funcionó? ¿Y por qué no escuchar a quien nos trajo sabiduría de fuera de nuestro planeta? Como dice el Eclesiastés: “No hay nada nuevo bajo el sol” (Ec 1, 9). Como dijo un amigo sabio: toda la sabiduría se resume en pocos trazos, cuatro o cinco reglas fundamentales. Basta. No te compliques. Less is more!
