Mother Teresa, CEO?

Check out this thought-provoking article on Mother Teresa of Calcutta that appeared earlier this month in The Wall Street Journal.

The article examines a new book entitled, Mother Teresa, CEO: Unexpected Principles for Practical Leadership. The book’s thesis is that Blessed Teresa’s work with the Missionaries of Charity ranks as one of the greatest business achievements in human history, and that business leaders today can learn much from this modern-day saint.

Of course we would prefer that our contemporaries focus on Blessed Teresa’s heroic sanctity, not her business acumen. But perhaps her greatness in secular terms will lead some open-minded young leaders to investigate what made this little nun tick.

And then who knows what would happen next?
