Shaping the Future of Global Leadership: Finding A Peaceful Solution

Award-winning author, Salar A. Khan, MD, MBA, suggests a highly theistic approach to solving the globally problematic issue of leadership and politics, turning to faith, morality, and philosophy to find an ultimately peaceful and sustainable solution. Dr. Salar Khan explicitly states his religious beliefs and incorporates the overlapping ideas of an ideal society by many great religions into his narrative but does not make any attempt at disturbing or forcing his beliefs on others. His principles are firmly founded in the values instilled by his faith but are also vital key points to the effective selection of qualified leaders, stating that the morality and ethics of theists are good benchmarks for the sense of responsibility that leaders should have over their subjects.

With its achievements as the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs (NABE) Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winner 2020 and the Literary Excellence Incorporated’s Book Excellence Award Finalist 2021, Shaping the Future of Global Leadership powerfully combines religion with logical training programs to address the lack of competence in global leaders, introducing the proper mindset for a leader and the process of selection and training for a leader with sound morals and character to arise. Neutrality, spirituality, and impartial truths are prevalent throughout the entire discourse, every chapter is thoroughly pondered on and is severely impactful.

“This is a peculiarly apolitical leadership book given the author’s mission is to improve the messy political world.” –Kirkus Review

“What drew me into this [Shaping the Future of Global Leadership: Finding a Peaceful Solution] is the eccentricity of a discourse so tightly woven into politics yet mainly steered by the need for peace and theistic views more than the politics itself. Salar Khan incorporates his faith and the views, opinions, and ideas he has gathered over the years into his solution for a better world. It’s really a refreshing take on the messy world politics we have today.” -Goodreads Review
