      The Monk and the Management Consultant - looking for a synthesis between capitalism and BuddhismToday's reading was this little book that comes from a decade of collaboration between two unlikely worlds. The jist of the book is Right Decision Making by taking a truly "long view" in a deeply "interdependent world." Right decisions come from right view, which lead to right action. Therefore at core of all leadership is right action that benefits all. Systems thinking/holistic viewpoint is to be ad [...]

      In general, I am not much of a fan of business books. I have found the majority of the ones I've read to be over-priced, frequently condescending or preachy in tone, and sorely lacking a real-world understanding of what people at all levels of business organizations are faced with on a daily basis.So perhaps you can also understand my reactions of surprise, interest, curiosity, and, yes, skepticism, when I came across this book.The Leader's Way is a joint effort between His Holiness The Dalai La [...]

      This is very much geared towards corporate business. It still has helpful information for the rest of us, but there is a lot that does not translate to entrepreneurship and other types of business leaders.

      I had a hard time getting into this book at first and I was about to scratch it half way through but I'm really glad I kept with it. I have been reading a lot of self-development books lately and” The Leaders Way” had some beautiful theories of how we can be successful and ethical at the same it. He discusses topics of globalization, poverty, greed, and having political and religious harmony. We have all seen over the years how greed and selfishness has almost crippled the global economy. Th [...]

      I wasn't totally sure what to make of this book at first. It's an attempt to integrate buddhist beliefs with business leadership. That's fine. It moderately succeeds, from what I read. I have a rule where I only have to read 50 pages of a book and if I'm not enjoying a book at that point, I put it down and let myself mark as "read" on (I was previously slogging through books I hated simply because I wanted to mark them as read. I know, it's a problem). This book activated the 50-page rule, unfo [...]

      This book was great for leadership skills. Keeping a trained mind and understanding people with calm emotions really takes the mud out of the water. It allows leaders to see to the root of the communication and better understand why people say what they say and what the true motive is behind it. This book explains how leaders should focus on three fundamental Buddhist principles. Right mind, right conduct, and impermanence. Understanding the principles will help you better make decisions for the [...]

      The Buddhist way to do business The Dalai Lama is a monk and a spiritual leader who has both feet planted firmly in the real world. Not content with being one of the world’s most recognizable religious figures, he advocates for social and economic change through the application of Buddhist principles. His collaboration and 10 years of conversation with management consultant Laurens van den Muyzenberg – clearly reported here – offer a blueprint for being a better leader and a more satisfied [...]

      This book gets a firm 3.5 stars, as it was good but not what I expected. It was more focused on the integration of Buddhism and Capitalism on a systemic scale than on the similarities of Buddhist teachings and western leadership literature (so the book I want to write is still an option :-) ) The Dalai Lama and his cowriter explore the correct application of Right View and Right Conduct across individual behavior, organizational management, and society at large. The book turns quite blatantly po [...]

    9. James on said:

      Business books are normally written by evil men advocating evil things. Not so with this one.It's impractical, overly optimistic, and the opposite of everything else written on the topic of business, but it is well worth reading by those of us who believe modern business practices will doom us a future darker than our past, if left unchecked.What else? Intelligently written. Some of the examples were not easily related, but many were great, very thought-provoking.Overall, best business book I re [...]

    10. Jenna on said:

      What I enjoyed most about this book is it connects the importance of Right Conduct and Right View in the business world. Who we are crosses over into our professional lives and we need to conduct ourselves with integrity. Only through integrity, can our business practices truly be successful.This book also gave ways in which to meditate and get into the right frame of mind in order to practice right conduct and right view. That being said, this is not an over-the-top spiritual book. It combines [...]

      Content was fine, focused on right view and right action and how these can be applied to business and economic responsibility. Unfortunately the book isn't too applicable to my current situation or most probably my future situation. Glad to have listened to it though. Voice performances are acceptable.

    12. Bebe Burnside on said:

      This book is for anyone who had ever had to make a decision. The Dalai Lama talks about right thinking and right acting and how to achieve them. It's not easy, but it's worth the effort. He also gives lots of examples of people who have made a difference by applying those principles. An uplifting, informative book that should be read by all leaders.

    13. Natalie on said:

      An interesting premise for a book. The beginning focuses mostly on Buddhist practices and can seem preachy, but as the book develops and moves more into the interstice between buddhism and capitalism, it becomes very fascinating. It is not completely convincing, but definitely starts a dialogue about this intriguing subject.

    14. Naiya on said:

      DNF. For its very first example of "right way" of thinking and "right way" of action, it asked what one should do upon learning a colleague earns more money for doing less work than you. No, don't advocate for equal compensation. Instead, do some soul-searching about not being greedy and reflect on how asking for a raise could hurt the poor company. At that point, I didn't care to continue.

    15. Hollis on said:

      This was the poorest of all the Dalai lama books I read. It's literally written with someone else (as opposed to his usual translations) and while is probably more accessible to a business person, ends up being very disjointed. I didn't finish it

    16. Adam on said:

      This was a decent leadership book. In my many military leadership courses, I've read better, but I appreciated the Dalai Lama's approach of responsiblility in thought and action. Personal, corporate and governmental responsibility would go a long way toward a more harmonious world.

    17. Given Mbethe on said:

      It is a perfect balance. The best of both worlds. An almost perfect equilibrium. Balancing everything is better than having focusing too much on one factor as it has been proven already that life is dynamic. Consider as many factors as possible when chasing your dreams.

      The message is fantastic, but the book itself was lacking something. Sadly, I found it a bit boring.

    20. Lindsey on said:

      While there was some really great information in this book, I found it to be repetitive and my mind often wandered while listening to it (on audiobook).

      Great leadership tips based on Buddhist principles. Excellent!

      Talking book version, not bad but as I only listen to it last thing at night I keep falling asleep
