THE GENTLE ART OF TAO LEADERSHIP
A 21st Century Perspective
LIM MENG SING PhD
Lim Meng Sing’s 6th book, his latest, has just been released
in Australia and New Zealand, and soon in UK.
Its title is The Gentle Art of Tao Leadership-
a 21st Century Perspective, distributed worldwide by
leading US book company, Simon & Schuster.
It’s on ethics in business and ethical leadership, a subject of immense importance as capitalism is at a critical moral crossroad in failing to live up to values expected of it.
The book complements Western literature on the subject
and is the only book of its kind in terms of treatment and content.
It paraphrases 44 verses from the 81 in the immortal classic
Tao Te-Ching ( CLASSIC OF THE WAY & OF VIRTUE, 600 BCE) by Lao-Tzu.
The book is likely to attract much interest in view of paucity
of such literature, especially in the West.
The publisher, Brolga Publishing Pty Ltd, Melbourne writes:
About The Book
by Lim Meng Sing PhD
The Gentle Art of Tao Leadership
explores living in a harmonious way with others and self. Leadership is all about people and ethics and, in a world often led by fear and greed, ethical leaders can be difficult to find.
We are all leaders in some form or another. Whether in business, sport, home, or simply with ourselves, the decisions we make influence and impact on others. To act ethically, in the gentle way of Tao, is to act for the good of all.
To quote the Chinese classic, the Tao te-Ching:
Ultimate goodness, like water, benefits all things and harms nothing …
It has depth at its heart; it shows beneficence in dealing with others; it is sincere in speech; it keeps order in governing; it thrives inability and acts in timeliness.
An inspiring and insightful book that will change the way we behave.
