The Essential Component in Leadership

George Vasilca Author Interview

Seven Principles for Super-Effective Leadership provides readers with strategies and tactics that will help them become a better Christian leader. What inspired you to write this book?

It all started from my first book, The Diamond Soul. I realized that I had a powerful concept that could be used as the basis for  building  leadership skills. 

What is the first step someone can take on their journey to becoming a better leader?

First step is to build a strong moral character which I call the Diamond Soul. This will give them the moral compass which is the essential component in leadership. Then, to start acquiring the skills and competencies, all constructed on a solid scientific foundation. The art and science of Leadership is a mysterious endeavor in which morality and psychology must blend harmoniously. In my view, spirituality should provide the moral direction, while the science provides the tools and methods necessary to do the job. Although it addresses a Christian audience, I’m sure the reader will quickly realize that most  principles are valid from any cultural or spiritual perspective. As an author with technical/scientific background yet with strong Cristian beliefs, it has been rather challenging for me to try to balance the two. The readers will judge it I managed to do a persuading job or not.

What is one piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you were younger?

This is a tough one. As I look back, I realized that nobody had warned me about the long self-development road which is life. And, to tell me to have faith and be patient. 

What is the next book that you have planned in your Diamond Soul Character series?

It is titled The Nine Secrets to Super-effective Relationships: Christian strategies and tactics to master the art of human connection, everywhere and every time. As the title says it, the book addresses issues of human connection and relationships from a Christian perspective. It should publish on Amazon in April or May this year.

This title is the second in the series “The Diamond Soul Character”, and deals with leadership issues from a Christian perspective. It follows the first title, “The Diamond Soul: 5 Stepping Stones to Christlike Character”, which develops the Diamond Soul character’s concept based on Christ’s main character strengths.

This second volume, “Seven Principles for Super Effective Leadership: creative strategies and tactics to become the best Christian boss,” is a leadership book. It provides a proven framework for developing practical leadership abilities by ordinary people. It offers competent advice on self-improvement, personal growth, and how to achieve your purpose in the context of living a Christian life. This text is not an academic textbook for use in MBA business schools or training professional managers and leaders. No, this book is to be used by the millions of common people who do acts of admirable leadership day in and day out and want to improve their leadership aptitudes. This book, therefore, addresses the needs of aspiring leaders of this country.

If you are working as a pastor, teacher, or technician, this book is for you. If you are a healthcare worker, first responder, or National Guard member, this text is for you. Equally so, if you are a stay-home mom, teenager, or grandfather, this volume is for you. In fact, everyone interested in dealing with and leading other people will find a wealth of information that can significantly assist them. I will particularly single out the two most essential skills you need to master: how to communicate better and cooperate creatively to achieve your purpose.

I wrote this book to honor the unsung leaders of this great country. Of course, I am referring to you, the millions of ordinary Americans who do acts of authentic leadership every day, some even without knowing it. You are the silent heroes who work quietly, invisibly, and without applause. But you are as indispensable to this nation as the sun is to the earth. You do your jobs beyond the call of duty; you add that extra touch to your work every day. You carry out your responsibilities with dedication and passion, well above what’s written in the job description. You are the role-models for all to see and replicate.

This volume defines the seven principles encapsulating the essence of leadership: a moral character based on faith, a substantial competency in the science of leadership, a mindset of achieving your purpose by service, and the all-important skillsets of communication and cooperation. It also outlines leadership strategies and practical tactics to be used along the way. Therefore, it is a step-by-step instruction manual that will educate, guide, and inspire you to become the best boss you can be. Its principles apply equally to believers as well as atheists, agnostics, and people of other faiths.

Dear reader, studying this material should be just the beginning of your long journey to become a better leader. I encourage you to take classes, courses, and seminars to reveal the beauty and uncover the mystery of the art of leadership. Continue to study the Word of God, mainly as it describes the leadership traits of Jesus Christ, the most excellent servant leader of all times. He is your perfect role-model to follow. Share your newly found knowledge and competencies with other people in your family, work, church, and neighborhood. Help other people to become servant leaders; mentor, coach, and inspire them.
