Описание: It is generally accepted in the business literature that the heart of leadership is leading self. I believe that leading self is also the path to being a `responsible` leader. This book tells you what to do if you want to get better at leading self.
Описание: As any school principal or administrator can tell you, the responsibilities of school leadership can take a person from inspired moments to crisis in an instant. How does a scho leader with good intentions preserve a healthy sense of self in the face of a crisis which in the best of times challenges the self, and in the worst of times can lead to deep wounds of the heart? How can good leaders minimize the impact of these crises and remain open to learn and grow from these difficult experiences? These are the questions at the heart of the stories contained in "The Wounded Leader". Through compelling stories that illustrate many of the common dilemmas faced by school leaders, the authors highlight the many paths to healing, and show how sometimes the most painful experience can be an opportunity for growth. "All leaders incur wounds. "The Wounded Leader" enables us to understand our wounds, learn from them...and begin to heal." - Roland Barth, Founder of Harvard Principals' Center. "Not only is the book full of fresh ideas and new insights but it is a fun read. It is not the usual leadership book that reads much like the other leadership books but stands out as an original contribution... easily presented and scholarly without being pretentious.??AA - Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Center for Educational Leadership at Trinity College, San Antonio, Texas.

Описание: This book is based on a simple, obvious point: leadership roles should be filled by people who deliberately decide they want to be in them. Yet many executives and managers find that they have become leaders by default rather than as a result of a personal choice. In fact, a great many people drift into or away from being leaders simply because they have not done the work of matching their own honestly described self with the realities of the leadership role. Not until they are well into their careers do many individuals seriously explore their personal fit for leadership. But by then, it is often too late to prepare for more gratifying roles or to get out of situations that don't make sense for them as individuals. Discovering the Leader in You offers a planful approach to understanding how aspects of personality, character, vision, home life, values, and skills match with essential leadership activities. This unique system of self-discovery clearly shows what it looks like to fit or not to fit in leadership roles in organizations. Robert J. Lee and Sara N. King, who developed this approach from their experience at the widely renowned Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, help leaders and potential leaders examine leadership commitments and development paths in the context of who they are as individuals. They show how to connect the inner self to the demands of leadership by using a set of questions that help (1) clarify the relevant realities and expectations in a leadership role, (2) bring out a personal vision and a leadership vision, (3) base leadership behaviors on personal values, (4) become more authentic in leadership situations, and (5) productively integrate work and personal lives. Discovering the Leader in You will help all executives--seasoned veterans and those considering leading as a new direction in their careers--to gain more personal insight into what leadership really means to them, to retain more control over their career choices, and consequently to achieve more personal success as leaders. "In the considerable literature on leadership, this book focuses on something new-how individuals can identify the key attributes of great leadership and link them to their own unique vision, values, and personal strengths. The authors provide a roadmap to self-knowledge that becomes a guide to maximizing effectiveness in the organization and in life." --Evelyn Rodstein, managing director, Leadership Organizational Development, J.P. Morgan "As we have known since biblical days, no one wants to follow an uncertain trumpet. If you want to be the most persuasive, self-confident, visionary leader that you can be, the tools and techniques in this book will help get you there" --Douglas T. (Tim) Hall, director, Executive Development Roundtable, and professor of organizational behavior, Boston University School of Management "The perfect book at the perfect time! As leadership has become the critical element in the age of intellectual capital, the pressure to assume a leadership role without reflection or regard for the trade-offs it represents is greater than ever. Thanks to Bob and Sara, mentors and professionals at all ages have a tool to make a conscious choice to accept the challenge and rewards of leadership." --Anita Jensen, vice president, organizationl development, Bristol-Myers Squibb "You wouldn't think there was anything more that could be said about leadership-but there is, the most important part in fact: how do you figure out who you are as a leader? Lee and King are wonderful counselors in answering this question. This book is going to be required reading in our executive MBA program." --Peter B. Vaill, author, Learning as a Way of Being and Spirited Leading and Learning
