Discover your Authentic Leadership. How do you become an authentic leader? How is it that some people are born natural leaders while others struggle to make the right decisions? Well, Bill George interviewed 125 great leaders and learned that they all share one thing in common: they make the right decisions based on what’s important to them. This might seem vague, so let’s explain. Each leader follows their True North or their internal compass. Your True North represents who you are as a human being, it is the fixed point that helps you stay on track as a leader. It is based on your values, your passions, and your motivations. When you follow your True North, your leadership will be authentic, and people will naturally want to associate with you and follow you. So whenever you feel overwhelmed and as if the world is spinning uncontrollably around you, following your True North can put you back on track. As you read, you’ll learn how to become self-aware, how to set your leadership and ethical boundaries, and whether or not you fall into one of the five archetypal leaders.

Book Description :

How do you create your own definition of success—and reach your unique potential? Building a fulfilling life and career can be a daunting challenge. It takes courage and hard work. Too often, we charge down a path leading to “success” as defined by those around us—and ultimately, are left feeling dissatisfied. Each of us is unique and brings distinctive skills and qualities to any situation. So why is it that most of us fail to spend sufficient time learning to understand ourselves and creating our own definition of success? The truth is, it can seem so natural and so much easier to just do what everyone else is doing—for now—leaving it for later to develop our best selves and figure out our own unique path. Is there a road map that will enable you to defy conventional wisdom, resist peer pressure, and carve out a path that fits your unique skills and passions? Robert Steven Kaplan, leadership expert and author of the highly successful book What to Ask the Person in the Mirror, regularly advises executives and students on how to tackle these questions. In this indispensable new book, Kaplan shares a specific and actionable approach to defining your own success and reaching your potential. Drawing on his years of experience, Kaplan proposes an integrated plan for identifying and achieving your goals. He outlines specific steps and exercises to help you understand yourself more deeply, take control of your career, and build your capabilities in a way that fits your passions and aspirations. Are you doing what you’re really meant to do? If you’re ready to face this question, this book can help you change your life.

Book Description :

Covering leadership in the arts and humanities, this volume integrates critical theory with authentic leadership development, exploring the notion that leadership is both a discursive practice and a performative identity. Each year the International Leadership Association publishes a book that captures the best contemporary thinking about leadership from a diverse range of scholars, practitioners, and educators working in the field of leadership studies. In keeping with the mission of the ILA, the International Leadership Series Building Leadership Bridges connects ways of researching, imagining, and experiencing leadership across cultures, over time, and around the world. Praise for The Embodiment of Leadership "Read this book to experience an artistic and more robust sense of leadership; to rise to the challenge to gain alignment in mind, body, and spirit; and to heed the call to heal the shadows we as leaders sometimes cast over our collective humanity. Read this book to become more whole." —Shann Ray Ferch, professor of leadership studies, Gonzaga University "For once leadership expertsconsider the mind-body problem from the perspective of the latter—the body. Those with an interest inhow the body is brought to bear on the exercise ofleadership would do wellto exploreThe Embodiment of Leadership." —Barbara Kellerman, James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "The Embodiment of Leadership goes beyond the banal by using our body experiences as the point of departure in deciphering the leadership conundrum. Anyone interested in the study of leadership would do well to pay attention to this book." —Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries, Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership and Organiza-tional Change, The Raoul de Vitry d'Avaucourt Chaired Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD "Leadership is a social construction. The Embodiment of Leadership presents a multifaceted approach to understanding how we, as a society, define, create, and contend with leaders and leadership. Serious scholars and students of leadership need to read this." —Ronald E. Riggio, Kravis Leadership Institute, Claremont McKenna College
