Leading with Compassion: Anchoring Leadership Practices in Prophetic Traditions

Leading with Compassion: Anchoring Leadership Practices in Prophetic Traditions

Compassionate leadership is the legacy of those special individuals who
were called upon to transform their communities and to bring hope,
enlightenment, and justice to places where despair, confusion, and
exploitation became entrenched. Prophets and leaders with prophetic
vision provided throughout history the example of compassionate
leadership where character, competence, and compassion were combined.

Leading
with Compassion draws on the prophetic tradition to outline the type of
leadership capable of inspiring communities, empowering their members,
and developing traditions that encourage cooperation and mutual support
and help. While examples and lessons are drawn from the prophetic
tradition and the American Muslim community settings, the book
endeavors to develop a model of leadership that transcends specific
religious practices and geographical communities. It attempts to
outline a leadership model uniquely suited for leading community based
organizations, and for transforming practices and conditions so as to
make them more inspiring and nurturing. So while the primary
beneficiaries of the book are North American Muslims, all those whose
main concern is to empower their communities and uplift its spirit and
standards can potentially benefit of this work.
