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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sanjiv Chopra masterfully weaves threads of wisdom into a wonderful tapestry of inspiration that will energize and motivate the head and heart to action. 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

  • “Thoroughly inspiring and motivating. Challenging the convention that to be a leader you need to have followers, the book very effectively inspires to uncover the greatness in every individual. In an interesting narrative that is loaded with excellent quotes, Dr. Chopra has very clearly laid out the underlying principles that define leaders. I would recommend reading the book over and over again periodically to be constantly reminded of the qualities that each of us can develop to bring out the leader in us.”

    Zunaira Munir, managing director, Strategize Blue

  • “Sanjiv Chopra’s book is a layman’s inspiration to leadership. He shows that leadership is not rabble-rousing. It is not just Mark Antony holding forth with the dead body of Caesar by his side. It is a multidimensional energy that also requires fever, passion, and the will to achieve, whatever one’s vocation. In a truly inspirational style, Sanjiv gently guides you over ten commanding leadership steps. If you can catch the infection of his passion and his fever, leadership will surely come your way. As someone who has had the privilege of leading a 65,000-strong police force of India’s capital city of Delhi, I learnt my leadership skills on the job. I wish Sanjiv’s book was with me in those days.”

    Vijay Karan, former commissioner of police, Delhi, India; former director, Central Bureau of Investigation, India

  • “Dr. Chopra’s book is a guide for future leaders. Among the many important points he makes is the importance of listening. As I have learned, a leader surrounds himself with good people—not yes men—and listens to what they have to say. More potential leaders have failed because they were deaf to advice than for any other reason.”

    Colonel Jack Jacobs (Ret.), Medal of Honor recipient and NBC military analyst

  • “Sanjiv Chopra’s book is at once both incredibly engaging and inspiring! I was wonderfully moved by the magical mosaic he weaves using real-life stories of leadership to convey the powerful idea that everyone can be an effective leader. Leadership by Example portrays a nice taxonomical structure to the tapestry that enhances our understanding of the fundamental attributes of leadership. The book is written in a moving story-like fashion and is embellished with a treasure trove of compelling quotes. This is an all-weather book that you will not be able to put down once you start it!” 

    Venkat Srinivasan, CEO, Rage Frameworks, Inc., and chairman and founder of English Helper
