About-

Spirituality and Growth on the Leadership Path: An Abecedary offers lessons not usually taught about leadership, lessons learned over the author's more than thirty years in higher education and nonprofit organizations.

Few resources on leadership and administration attend to the inner life of a person in a leadership position. Many of this book's themes are therefore related to the inner moral and spiritual life. Some topics are prosaic, dealing with everyday activities. Throughout the book, "pith instructions" offer simple practical advice about the inner process and core values that may inform the leadership path. Haynes draws on the world's wisdom traditions--philosophy and religion, mysticism and theology, including indigenous beliefs and rituals--as rich resources for reconceiving leadership.

This abecedary includes drawings by artist Michael Shernick, which are paired with entries from the "chronicles of experience," etymology and poetry, examples of contemplative practice and meditation, and metaphoric digressions. Common elements--such as lists and advice--mix with uncommon elements, including recipes. This primer will provide inspiration and insight for navigating the shoals, deep water, rocky coasts, wind, and sunny climes of the leadership journey.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A scholar, an artist, a PhD from Harvard in religion and fine arts, and an experienced academic leader, this powerful reflection of Deborah Haynes's integration of all of these forces in her life resulted in her advocacy of a leadership path that is both authentic and deeply rooted in service to others."
--John Pierce, Retired Executive Director, Oregon Historical Society

"This is a unique and wonderful book about leadership. It has a practical as well as a philosophical and ethical view of what it takes to be an effective leader. Haynes has both the scholarly background and the leadership experience to know. . . . This book is equally outstanding at describing the spirituality as well as the how-to knowledge necessary to lead."
--Peter Spear, Professor and Provost Emeritus, University of Wisconsin

"Spirituality and Growth on the Leadership Path is a work that will feed the spirit of those in leadership positions, from academic officers to corporate executives, from nonprofit directors to clergy in the church. . . . This is an invitation to explore how we can feed our inner life and discover our work to be a vocation rather than simply a job."
--Wilson Yates, President Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of Religion, Society, and the Arts, United Theological Seminary
