Praise for Grounded

"I have no hesitation in predicting that Rosen's book will be one of the top, most important books on leadership for the 21st century."
Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor in Business Administration and University Professor at the University of Southern California; author of Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership

"Grounded argues that we all have the capacity for personal leadership. Bob Rosen provides insights for becoming the more alert, engaged, decisive, resilient, and inclusive leader organizations need."
Kay Koplovitz, founder of USA Network; entrepreneur; author of Bold Women, Big Ideas

"Bob Rosen's timely, well-written book goes to the heart of what it takes to lead in today's complex world. Rosen's message deserves to be widely read and followed to produce better leaders for the 21st century."
Bill George, Harvard Business School professor; bestselling author of True North

"Today's business climate is the epicenter of some pretty powerful 'winds of change.' Read Rosen's groundbreaking new book, Grounded."
Marshall Goldsmith, author or editor of 34 books, including the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"Great leadership is the most difficult and worthy challenge of our times. Bob Rosen, backed by a wealth of experience working with CEOs, knows that leadership is fundamentally personal—and that the ability to drive change begins inside. I recommend that every leader take his advice."
Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO, the Lego Group

"Grounded reminds us how important it is to balance every piece of our lives—personal, spiritual, family, work, exercise, and more—into one life, which becomes our life's work. Thank you, Bob, for helping leaders to be their best!"
Alan Mulally, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company

"Bob Rosen's Grounded lays out a compelling, personal, and proven path for you to take responsibility for your own learning and development. This is a powerful book, relevant for leaders all around the world."
Silas S. S. Yang, Asia Pacific chairman and global network leadership team member, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Confronted by disruptive change and worldwide economic turbulence, leaders at all levels—across all industries and sectors—find themselves ill-equipped to manage the challenges they now face. They must contend with chronic uncertainty, intense competition, personal burnout, and a new world order of global interconnectedness. Most leaders are poorly served by the prevailing paradigm that obsessively focuses on what we do to produce short-term results while sabotaging who we are as healthy human beings. Few have seen alternatives, until now.

In Grounded, internationally renowned CEO advisor Bob Rosen proposes a new approach to leadership that speaks to our better selves and is designed for any leader who grapples with the unrelenting and complex demands of today's marketplace. Rosen argues that leaders at every level can become more self-aware, develop their untapped potential, and drive significantly better results—for themselves, their teams, and their organizations. This groundbreaking approach is drawn from Rosen's Healthy Leader model and highlights the six personal dimensions that fuel—and refuel—the world's top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health.

Grounded is based on long-term research with hundreds of CEOs and leaders from around the world, and includes illustrative stories from a variety of organizations, including the Fire Department of New York, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Lego Group, Ralph Lauren, and Medstar Health.

Now any leader can master the six dimensions needed to develop the stamina and strength to not only weather tough times but to achieve exceptional results.

Synopsis:

A provocative, personal approach to leadership based on in-depth research with hundreds of executives around the world

Confronted by disruptive change and economic turbulence, many of today's leaders find themselves ill-equipped to manage the hazards they now face. They must contend with chronic uncertainty, cynical employees, and personal burnout. Most are poorly served by the prevailing paradigm that obsessively focuses on what we do to produce short-term results while sabotaging who we are as healthy human beings. Few have seen alternatives, until now.

Grounded proposes a new approach that's designed for actual humans who must grapple with these forces. This new paradigm speaks to our better selves. Based on the author's Healthy Leader model, it focuses on the six personal dimensions that fuel—and refuel—the world's top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health.

The book argues that leaders at every level can be more self-aware, develop their untapped potential, and drive significantly better results—for themselves, their teams, and their organizations.

  • Shows readers how to build a personal leadership model that works with their values, goals and capabilities
  • Features fresh stories from leaders in a variety of organizations including the New York Fire Department, PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Lego Group, and Medstar Health
  • Gives leaders practical tools to face their toughest challenges with greater skill, confidence, and impact

By developing themselves and mastering the six dimensions, readers can gain the stamina and strength to not only weather tough times but to achieve much, much more.

Synopsis:

A practical, human approach to business leadership based on the author's Six Dimensions of Healthy Leadership

Beset by rapid change and challenged by uncertain markets, many of today's business leaders find themselves ill equipped to manage the hazards they face. They must contend with cynical workforces, personal burnout, economic impermanence, and constant volatility. Facing these issues, many leaders find themselves poorly served by the prevailing paradigm of corporate leader as icon and hero. Grounded offers a new model for leadership intended for actual humans, based on the author's Six Dimensions of Healthy Leadership: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health.

Arguing that great leadership is not based on concrete actions as much as on the inner qualities of a person, Grounded forces leaders to look at their own values, personalities, and experiences and use those as a basis for honest, effective leadership. Based on hundreds of face-to-face interviews with executives around the world, the book gives leaders the tools and insight they need to lead confidently, effectively, and humanely.

  • Illustrated by real interviews with dozens of leaders from organizations such as the New York Fire Department, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the US Army
  • Gives leaders the skills and insight they need to face tough business challenges with confidence
  • Appropriate for CEOs, entrepreneurs, managers, human resources professionals, consultants, and almost anyone who leads other people

Grounded argues that the key to effective leadership lies in the personal qualities of leaders themselves. With the Six Dimensions of Healthy Leadership, readers will be able to tap into their inner leader and guide their organizations through any challenge.
