Summary

"John Paul II showed me what real leadership looks like. He modeled for me how to pursue our God-given potential. Not coincidentally, this also makes us and those around us better employees, more capable of and more willing to work hard at building a stronger company. That's something that makes both good human sense and good business sense." (Andreas Widmer Former Swiss Guard, CEO and business leader)

Andreas Widmer gives a behind-the-scenes look into Pope John Paul II, the most authentically human person he's ever met, and reveals how those memories shaped and forged his success as a corporate executive. In what papal biographer George Weigel calls a powerful example of leadership at work, Widmer recounts his personal experiences serving Blessed Pope John Paul II in the Swiss Guard, and the secrets of successful leadership that he learned at the feet of the great pope.

Wonderful life lessons

I really didn't know much about St. Pope John Paul II and am so glad that I listened to this book. It is such an easy to understand message and is definitely not just for CEOs or entrepreneurs. It is for everyone. There is nothing that I didn't like. Enjoy and be inspired to live a life closer to God in a very simple way.
