Without question, managing people effectively requires strong leadership. What exactly characterizes good leadership qualities? Are these leadership qualities easily teachable? And what are the significant gender differences between masculine and feminine leadership styles?
Abbot Primate Notker Wolf and Sister Enrica Rosanna have each held significant leadership positions, and, based on their real-world experience, they examine and answer these questions. Together they establish common mistakes that most people make and explain what it truly takes to become an effective leader in business, politics, school, family, and religious life. This is a book that is beneficial to everyone, even if the reader is not in a leadership role.
Abbot Primate Notker Wolf, OSB, was born in 1940 in Bad Gronenback, Bavaria, Germany. He serves at Sant’Anselmo in Rome as the highest-ranking member of the Confederation of Benedictines. In this role, he travels the world visiting Benedictine communities. He speaks thirteen languages and is an enthusiastic and diverse musician. An integral part of Wolf’s Christian spirituality is interreligious dialogue — that is, “loving the world of the other.” An expert in leadership, he is frequently sought out by religious and business communities alike.
Salesian Sister Enrica Rosanna was born in Busto Arsizio in Northern Italy. She is professor in the sociology of religion and served many years as rector of the papal faculty of education until 2004, when Pope John Paul II named her undersecretary for the Congregation for Religious. She held this post until her retirement in 2011.
