This book explores the nature of female leadership and illustrates how women may seek to renew the very notion of leadership through their own personal development.
Offering a psycho-spiritual examination of Dante’s journey through Purgatory and the seven sins and virtues, the book discusses the process of overcoming the tension between inner motivations and outer expectations through personal development in order to achieve true leadership.
Female Leadership will be of great interest to all professionals who wish to familiarise themselves with personal leadership development and learn how Jungian theory has been put into practice in this field, as well as to leaders in corporate and non-corporate organisations.
"In this work Karin Jironet offers all of us guidance in moving toward a goal that is fresh and new – spiritual and psychological leadership within the difficult and confining spaces of modernity but also based rigorously upon ancient psychological and spiritual principles." – Murray Stein, from the Foreword.
