The Seven Leadership Virtues of Joan of Arc
Among history’s leaders, Joan of Arc stands out as one of the preeminent figures. This small book tells the tale of her leadership virtues as a mystic and a warrior who obeyed the command of God to perform extraordinary deeds. Because of her virtue, she had a profound effect on both the earthly and heavenly kingdoms.
Among all the excellent qualities Joan of Arc exhibited in her short life, this book focuses on these seven: spirit (her spiritual formation and personal zeal); identity (her strong sense of self and personal calling); power (her excellent judgment in using coercive power to save her country); mobility (her purposeful action in executing her mission); realism (her ability to judge correctly what to do in complex situations); attraction (her immense powers of persuasion); and inspiration (the way in which she called the men and women of her day to heroism).
Although Joan of Arc lived six hundred years ago, she is a leader we can still learn from today.
