Leader As Healer Wins Business Book of the Year Award 2023

News provided by LID Business Media on Wednesday 17th May 2023

The book Leader As Healer, written by leadership development expert Nicholas Janni, published by LID Publishing, won the Business Book of the Year Award 2023, last night on 16 May, at the Business Book Awards Gala Dinner. It was awarded the title of overall winner by the Business Book Awards Head Judge, Jacq Burns, who selected Janni’s book from the winners in all 14 categories. She said the title is ‘a transformational read that every leader of today needs.’

This outstanding book was recognised among 300 nominated books and more than 100 shortlisted titles. Leader As Healer also won in its title category, Leadership Book of the Year. Leader as Healer argues an urgent upgrade is needed in how managers think and practice leadership. This is a timely and very relevant book, which comes as an antidote to outdated management thinking and practices, which we know are not working in the current post-pandemic world. The leader of today needs a serious overhaul in their leadership skill, where they are required to be empathetic, intuitive and present. Along with being skilled in mindfulness, deep listening, and able to inspire colleagues to engage and collaborate in everyday business.

The author Nicholas Janni was overjoyed with winning this prestigious business book award and says: “I am deeply honoured to receive this award. And I take it as a very strong affirmation of the work of Healing and Awakening that more and more of us are bringing to the corporate world and beyond. The world is terribly broken. We urgently need leaders who embody deep, soulful, heartfelt Presence - bringing service to the greater whole as their primary commitment”

Martin Liu, LID’s COO & Publisher says: “We are delighted for Nicholas Janni and so proud of his book, Leader As Healer. This award demonstrates the importance of Nicholas’ work and thinking, and why it is highly relevant to today’s managers and leaders. One of the main themes of the night of the Business Book Award was the responsibility of authors and publishers to guide and educate the business world. Nicholas’ book undoubtedly does that.”

Nicholas Janni has gained an international reputation in the past 20 years for his transformational coaching and leadership development programmes, designed for chief executives, senior leaders, and top teams from diverse sectors, public and private. He also teaches at Oxford University and the IMD Business School.
