Mother Teresa as Executive

"Mother Teresa has been in the news lately, but not for the legacy of her good deeds. Rather the nun, who died in 1997, has been recognized as a successful business leader.

First the Economist compared her “brand” to that of Lady Gaga. Now, a new book, “Mother Teresa, CEO: Unexpected Principles for Practical Leadership,” likens her to a corporate executive. Ruma Bose, co-authored the book with business veteran Lou Faust, who himself has held CEO positions.”

Angel from throughaglassonion.com Reviewed Mother Teresa, CEO

"As a contributor to the Patheos Book Club blog, I recently read Mother Teresa, CEO by Ruma Bose and Lou Faust. The book can be categorized as a business and leadership book that aims to provide practical advice for effective leadership.

The Economist: The Angel and The Monster

Take a look at the amazing comparison between Lady Gaga and Mother Teresa in this article from The Economist.

"Mother Teresa wore the same outfit every day: a white sari with three blue stripes, reflecting her vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Lady Gaga, by contrast, is not big on chastity. (“Baby when it’s love if it’s not rough it isn’t fun,” she sings.) Yet the differences between the two women may matter less than their similarities."
