Publisher Comments:

When change requires you to challenge people's familiar reality, it can be difficult, dangerous work. Whatever the context--whether in the private or the public sector--many will feel threatened as you push though major changes. But as a leader, you need to find a way to make it work.

Ron Heifetz first defined this problem with his distinctive theory of adaptive leadership in Leadership Without Easy Answers. In a second book, Leadership on the Line, Heifetz and coauthor Marty Linsky highlighted the individual and organizational dangers of leading through deep change in business, politics, and community life. Now, Heifetz, Linsky, and coauthor Alexander Grashow are taking the next step: The Practice of Adaptive Leadership is a hands-on, practical guide containing stories, tools, diagrams, cases, and worksheets to help you develop your skills as an adaptive leader, able to take people outside their comfort zones and assess and address the toughest challenges.

The authors have decades of experience helping people and organizations create cultures of adaptive leadership. In today's rapidly changing world, The Practice of Adaptive Leadership can be your handbook to meeting the demands of leadership in the midst of complexity.

Book News Annotation:

Authors Heifetz, Linsky, and Grashow, all principals in Cambridge Leadership Associates, an international development firm, provide tools and tactics designed to help individuals develop the skills needed to provide leadership for change in a variety of settings. The authors take advantage of the contacts and their years of experience to incorporate stories, anecdotes, and examples from business and public life to illustrate how to diagnose and sharpen leadership strengths and weaknesses and improve effectiveness. They offer readers suggestions for understanding issues, motivations, and environments and for identifying their true roles and scope of authority.
