About the Author

Dr. Arthur J. Wolak is President of CMI Chat Media Inc. He received his PhD in management from Macquarie University, Australia, and earned graduate degrees in comparative religion from Gratz College. Wolak has published articles in 'The International Journal of Organizational Analysis', 'The Australasian Canadian Studies Journal' and 'The Jewish Bible Quarterly'.


“The life of Moses, the most famous leader in the Hebrew Bible and revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, is the springboard for Arthur J. Wolak to engagingly discuss the skills needed by leaders today. This book provides the reader with an enjoyable combination of religious reflection, business acumen and innovative entrepreneurship. It is a rich midrash and required reading for any modern manager who recognises that lessons from the past can shed light on and improve their leadership today.”
— Edward Kessler, MBE, Founder and Director, The Woolf Institute; Fellow, St Edmund's College, University of Cambridge, UK, and Principal, Cambridge Theological Federation, UK

"This book is an interesting study in leadership qualities and many different theories of leadership... [It] would serve as a welcome resource for any person ... in a leadership or management position."
— Jewish Bible Quarterly (Vol. 47, No. 2)

In Religion and Contemporary Management: Moses as a Model for Effective Leadership, "Readers will learn as much about leadership in general as they will about Moses and, of course, will take away some pointers on how to improve their skills in this area.”
—Jewish Independent
