Leadership by Example is an accessible and inspiring guide to good leadership based on a popular lecture that Dr. Sanjiv Chopra has presented to thousands.
Very few of us are leaders all the time, in everything we do, but all of us can become a leader in specific situations. In a committee, in business, at a social club, or religious institution - we all find a time in our lives when we can lead. Few people set out knowingly to become leaders; rather, they see a need and find a way of dealing with it, and often others choose to follow their example.
Based on a talk that he has given to more than sixty thousand people in at least seven countries, the LEADERSHIP mnemonic that Dr. Chopra explains is as follows:
L – listen well
E – empathy
A – attitude
D – dreams and decisiveness
E – effectiveness
R – resilience
S – sense of purpose
H – humility and humor
I – integrity and imagination
P – principles, and willingness to pack other people’s parachutes
Drawing from his experience as faculty dean for continuing education for Harvard Medical School, as well as from the writings and lives of great leaders throughout history, this easy-to-read, inspiring book serves as a reminder and a guide to becoming leaders in our own lives.

His book is a must-read for those who aspire to attain the highest form of servant leadership.” (Charles R. Denham, senior fellow, Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative; chairman, TMIT)
“In all my years in academic medicine, the most important lecture I have ever had the pleasure of attending was ‘The 10 Tenets of Leadership’ by Professor Sanjiv Chopra. Now available in hard copy, it is a must-read that illustrates how we all can be leaders in our own areas of endeavor, thereby making the world a much better place.” (Melvin E. Clouse, MD, Deaconess Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School)
“Great leaders may move mountains, but first they must move people - by inspiring and connecting with them. In this engaging book, Dr. Chopra displays an encyclopedic perspective on leadership across cultures and through time. He goes to the heart of leadership to reveal that qualities such as integrity, empathy, humility, and passion are essential for anyone who wants to harness the talents of others to accomplish a shared goal. So too is the ability to listen. Those seeking an inclusive leadership model will discover much value in these pages.” (Dipak C. Jain, dean of INSEAD)
