From the Inside Flap

In a world where the loudest guy in the room gets all the attention, being humble can be considered a weakness. But Pope Francis's strength emanates directly from his humility.

Driving around Rome in a Ford Focus, rejecting the opulent papal quarters, ministering to the poor--these gestures demonstrate a type of leadership that many figured had long since been abandoned. They've made the pope the most talked about person on the planet, the most well-regarded reli­gious figure, and a moral and humanitarian leader to most, regardless of their faith.

Lead with Humility shows how you can be as compassionate, authentic, and effective as this groundbreaking leader. Bestselling author Jeffrey Krames translates the pope's key ideas and practices into practical tactics that anyone can emulate.

* Remove the walls--literally--between yourself and your employees.

* Enlist your executives to join you each year at the front desk or in the delivery truck.

* Consider all points of view, and make decisions in consultation--not as snap judgments.

* Focus on enhancing people's strengths, not fixing their weaknesses.

* Break the habit of doing things the same old way, and reinvent ineffective processes.

* Communicate with everyone, at every level of the organization.

* Surround yourself with truth-tellers --no matter how painful it is to hear.

* Shake up the status quo and get out of your comfort zone.

As only a great leader can, Pope Francis has restored vibrancy to a struggling institution. His leadership style serves as a model for anyone who wants to do the same for their own organization and to connect in a meaningful way with employees, teammates, and customers.

Jeffrey A. Krames is the bestselling author of The Rumsfeld Way, The Welch Way, Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership, and other popular business books. He has been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Financial Times, Chicago Tribune, and Los Angeles Times, and been interviewed by Fox News, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, A&E's Biography, the BBC, and other major media outlets.
