In The Mindful Leader, Peter Shaw unpacks the Christian concepts underpinning good leadership and management - such as wisdom, hope and truth - offering a toolkit for leaders who are aspiring to be more authentic.
He applies biblical themes - from Accountability to Resurrection - to the demands of leadership today, looking to the example of Jesus and the Apostles to show how leaders can hold onto their values and beliefs despite the pressures they face.
He bridges the gap between what Christian leaders hear at church and the demanding situations they face in the workplace, offering practical encouragement alongside realism and pragmatism about what is possible.
