In Brotherhood, Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra reveal the story of their personal struggles and triumphs as doctors, immigrants, and brothers. They were born in the ferment of liberated India after 1947, as an age-old culture was reinventing its future. For the young, this meant looking to the West. The Chopra brothers were among the most eager and ambitious of the new generation. In the 1970s, they each emigrated to the United States to make a new life. Both faced tough obstacles: while Deepak encountered resistance from Western-trained doctors over what he called the mind-body connection, Sanjiv struggled to reconcile the beliefs of his birthplace with those of his new home. Eventually, each brother became convinced that America was the right place to build a life, and the Chopras went on to great achievements - Deepak as a global spiritual teacher and bestselling author, Sanjiv as a world-renowned medical expert and professor at Harvard Medical School. Brotherhood will fascinate and inspire those who still believe in America's capacity to foster achievement and reward hard work.Show more
An accessible and inspiring guide to good leadership based on a popular lecture that Dr. Sanjiv Chopra has presented to thousands. Very few of us are leaders all the time, in everything we do, but all of us can become a leader in specific situations. In a committee, in business, at a social club, or religious institution-we all find a time in our lives when we can lead. Few people set out knowingly to become leaders; rather, they see a need and find a way of dealing with it, and often others choose to follow their example. Based on a talk that he has given to more than sixty thousand people in at least seven countries, the LEADERSHIP mnemonic that Dr. Chopra explains is as follows: L - listen well. E - empathy. A - attitude. D - dreams and decisiveness. E - effectiveness. R - resilience. S - sense of purpose. H - humility and humor. I - integrity and imagination. P - principles, and willingness to pack other people's parachutes. Drawing from his experience as faculty dean for continuing education for Harvard Medical School, as well as from the writings and lives of great leaders throughout history, this easy-to-read, inspiring book serves as a reminder and a guide to becoming leaders in our own lives. "Sanjiv Chopra masterfully weaves threads of wisdom into a wonderful tapestry of inspiration that will energize and motivate the head and heart to action. His book is a must-read for those who aspire to attain the highest form of servant leadership."-Charles R. Denham, senior fellow, Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative; chairman, TMITShow more
