The Soul of Leadership: Unlocking the Potential of Your Greatness

By Deepak Chopra

Don’t call it luck. It’s really synchronicity, says prolific author and spiritual guide Deepak Chopra.

That’s the term Chopra uses in this guidebook for business leaders to explain the propensity of some leaders for achieving continuous success.

Small miracles, he says, do occur in most peoples’ lives. But he is speaking of what he calls “major miracles” that are the stock and trade of “visionary leaders.”

Such leaders, he maintains, make their own miracles through being in touch with their souls, which provide inner guidance that leads them to make the right decisions at the right times.

“Leaders are expected to produce results, so it’s not surprising that the greatest leaders share the secret of synchronicity. … Your personal vision needs the same support, and you can learn to cultivate it,” Chopra writes.

In this book, Chopra provides a short course for achieving that and for communicating your vision to those who look to you for leadership.

He offers examples of visionary leaders in business and other fields and provides exercises.
