A Leader's Essence
(Esencia de líder)
Comic / Commercial Non-Fiction / History and Biographies
Alejandra and Valeria tell the stories of the lives of twelve humanitarian leaders. They focus on the statements, thoughts, and language that led them to be great leaders, so that readers can recognize similar elements in themselves. Joan of Arc, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Pope Francisco are examples of people who could have kept silent in the face of a future that loomed repressive, but instead they followed their inner voices. That was what turned them into leaders, mirrors, voices with powerful echoes: those of their followers, who identified in them their own need for an authentic existence.
