Leading with Joy

Practices for Uncertain Times



In a time of increasing disconnection and uncertainty, Leading with Joy shows how leaders can reclaim their mission and embrace joy in service of social transformation.

Leadership that connects people and centers compassion and trust instead of competition and disconnection is needed more than ever before. This book promotes a joyful and courageous approach to leadership that can sustain purposeful action and social change.

Leading with Joy demonstrates how leaders can create conditions of abundance and well-being, which are necessary for long-term social transformation. It also draws on the authors’ lived experiences as leaders, including their encounters with oppression and their wisdom in principled leadership.

The book takes the form of a series of vignettes about the authors’ experiences, with reflection questions at the end of each one. The stories are varied but resonant, touching on everything from near-death experiences to family relationships to workplace encounters and triumphs. The authors illuminate different aspects of leadership, such as humility, forgiveness, and kindness, and invite leaders to respond to the current moment.
