Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Many self-help books are designed to build leadership qualities, but few are designed to adapt those development principles outside of the workplace and into the realm of personal life. Friedman, head of the Leadership Development Center for Ford Motors, has used these concepts to help managers and executives lead balanced and consistent lives outside of work. Step-by-step instruction, examples from real life and hands-on tools in this guide help leaders to accomplish success by acting with authenticity, integrity and creativity.
