Detailed item info

Challenges the way we think about leadership development and ourselves as leaders. Building off ideas introduced in the author's HBR article called Work and Life: The End of the Zero-Sum Game, this work presents an approach that teaches leaders how to improve performance with a three-step process of being real; being whole; and being creative.

Now more than ever, your success as a leader isn't just about being a great businessperson. You've got to be a great person, performing well in all domains of your life -- your work, your home, your community, and your private self. That's a tall order. The good news is that, contrary to conventional wisdom about "balance," you don't have to assume that these domains compete in a zero-sum game. Total Leadership is a game-changing blueprint for how to perform well as a leader not by trading off one domain for another, but by finding mutual value among all four. The author shows you how to achieve these "four-way wins" as a leader who can: · Be real: Act with authenticity by clarifying what's important · Be whole: Act with integrity by respecting the whole person · Be innovative: Act with creativity by experimenting to find new solutions With engaging examples and clear instruction, Friedman provides more than thirty hands-on tools for using these proven principles to produce stronger business results, find clearer purpose in what you do, feel more connected to the people who matter most, and generate sustainable change. Most leadership development books focus only on your professional skills, while books about personal growth concentrate on your needs beyond work. Total Leadership is different. It's a unique and long-awaited resource that shows how to win in all domains of life.

This book challenges the way we think about both leadership development and ourselves as leaders. Leadership development programs are meant to help people become better leaders at work. But, as author Stew Friedman knows through years of working with thousands of executives, people improve their performance as leaders only when they enhance their performance in other domains of their life at the same time. People are most successful in their leadership roles in organisations when they are also leaders of their own lives; that is, when they increase their capacity to influence everything they care about most in life, including work, family, the broader community, and their own sense of self. This is what Friedman calls Total Leadership and has been teaching to MBAs and Executive Education students at Wharton and to executives in several companies like Ford, Booz Allen Hamilton, and Lehman Brothers for several years.
