Description

This book explores the nature of female leadership and illustrates how women may seek to renew the very notion of leadership through their own personal development.

Offering a psycho-spiritual examination of Dante’s journey through Purgatory and the seven sins and virtues, the book discusses the process of overcoming the tension between inner motivations and outer expectations through personal development in order to achieve true leadership.

Topics include:

  • the process of personal transformation using Dante’s description of the seven sins and virtues
  • the value of psychology and spirituality for women in leadership roles
  • the new vision of leadership that meets present global demands for social cohesion and sustainability.

Female Leadership will be of great interest to all professionals who wish to familiarise themselves with personal leadership development and learn how Jungian theory has been put into practice in this field, as well as to leaders in corporate and non-corporate organisations.

Reviews
