This book details the leadership principles used by Mother Teresa in building one of the worldrs"s largest and most successful organizations, with this as its central lesson: leaders must articulate a simple vision, and execute it with absolute practicality. Bose-who spent eight months working with Mother Teresa in 1992-3-and Faust have distilled Mother Teresars"s leadership style into nine essential principles. Each principle shows readers how to apply Mother Teresars"s wisdom in their lives and businesses.Much has been written about Mother Teresa. She is an actual saint, beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003, as well as the winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, This book is the first to view her in another light-as a pragmatic, realistic leader who over 47 years raised billions of dollars and helped millions of people. This often meant making tough decisions-such as accepting a donation from Saddam Hussein. This book has the principles that guided those decisions. These are universal principles that can help any leader working to keep an organization on course and on mission.
