Book Summary :

We live in a challenging, complex, inter-connected and unpredictable world beset by a range of seemingly insoluble problems. But, says Michael Fullan—an internationally acclaimed authority on organizational change—we have an increasing understanding of how to tackle complex change. This involves developing a new kind of leader: one who recognizes what is needed to bring about deep and lasting changes in living systems at all levels. These leaders need a deep understanding of what motivates us as human beings and how we tap into and influence other people's self-motivation. In his previous best-selling books The Six Secrets of Change, Leading in a Culture of Change, and Turnaround Leadership, Michael Fullan examined the concepts and processes of change. In Change Leader he turns his focus to the core practices of leadership that are so vital for leading in today's complex world. He reveals seven core practices for today's leaders, all of which appear to be deceptively simple but actually get to the essence of what differentiates a powerful leader from one who is merely competent: Practice Drives Theory Be Resolute Motivate the Masses Collaborate to Compete Learn Confidently Know Your Impact Sustain Simplexity Throughout the book Fullan argues that powerful leaders have built bedrocks of credibility, have learned how to identify the few things that matter most, and know how to leverage their skills in ways that benefit their entire organization. The author shows leaders how to avoid policies and strategies that focus on shallow and short-term goals and develop leadership skills for long-term success. With a wealth of illustrative examples from business, education, nonprofit, and government sectors Change Leader provides a much-needed leadership guide for today's turbulent climate.

Book Summary :

The Listening Leader fills an urgent gap in the literature on educational leadership. Leadership is second only to teacher quality in its impact on student learning and achievement. Copious research has linked school success with quality leadership, yet districts struggle to train and retain tomorrow's leaders. Across the nation, we have overlooked the educational leader's ability to create a culture of improvement through a simple but easily forgotten skill: listening. Listening is the heart of school transformation--the one skill that allows leaders to connect with diverse stakeholders, gather rich data, and drive reform through the power of relationships. Today's educational leaders must learn to distinguish critical signals coming from their stakeholders from the noise of everyday school life. By inviting readers to cultivate a listening mindset, Safir's book offers a powerful new way of leading. This book speaks to leaders who care deeply and want to make a difference, but who often feel ineffective. Its practical strategies will help readers foster a thriving culture of improvement. The Listening Leader offers districts a framework for leadership development and a strategy to interrupt the churn that plagues them. It will change the conversation about educational data and leadership. Designed to be practical, The Listening Leader is filled with vignettes, self-assessment tools, and concrete strategies that can be put to immediate use. To facilitate extended learning, chapters include reflective questions and discussion points for adaptation in a professional learning community or a study group. Readers will walk away rejuvenated--relieved that there is a better way to lead--and motivated to shift their approach.

Book Summary :

Great Britain, 1937: Edward VIII will not abdicate. He and his new bride, Wallis Simpson, are preparing for their coronation. Winston Churchill is a prisoner on the Isle of Man. The Prime Minister, Oswald Mosley consults the new Chancellor of Germany, and his close ally, Adolf Hitler on a more 'permanent' solution to the 'Jewish problem'. The secret police have Britain in an iron grip. But one man, James Armstrong , a hero of the Great War, is organising the resistance against the government . While 'the leader' is determined to see him hang, Armstrong, constantly on the run, is every bit as clever and resolute as his enemy. In the tradition of Robert Harris's Fatherland, Guy Walters has writen a compelling, page-turning what-if thriller that imagines a nightmare vision of a Britain that could have been, if history had gone the other way.

Book Summary :

The Transforming Leader is written for people who strive to make a positive difference in the world. The book was conceived by the Fetzer Institute's Leadership for Transformation project in collaboration with the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership and the International Leadership Association. As part of the process that led to the book, the project's Stewardship Team held three retreats that brought together internationally known leaders, leadership educators, and theorists to sit in dialogue reflecting on three questions: How can we explore a variety of approaches to creating a bridge between our inner life and outer action for transformational effect? What is the commonality among these divergent approaches? And what of this can help you or me be an agent of transformation in a world on the edge of either destruction or renewal? The leaders and leadership experts contributing to the book, many of whom participated in the dialogues, consistently stress their own experience that it is not just what a leader does that matters, or what they know about human beings, their motivations and ways of behavior, but who that leader is inside: How alive they are, how balanced, how healthy, how passionate, how aware, how engaged, how compassionate, how energized - how they connect with their deeper and wiser selves. Based on cutting edge leadership thinking and practice, the 20 essays that make up the work explore the many paths and lessons leaders can take to access the best parts of themselves and meet the challenges of today's world.

Book Summary :

Traditional organizational boundaries limit our ability to deliver results. The Connected Leader argues that many of the old leadership recipes are outdated and don't take into account changes in the work environment and informal social networks within the organization. Taking a new approach to leadership theory, the author argues that modern leaders engage with employees and improve performance by building on trust, giving meaning to workplace relationships and by creating dialogue within the organization. The Connected Leader provides diagnostic tools for readers to evaluate their own skills and directly relate the insights from the book to their own situation. International case studies provide clear examples of connected leadership.

Book Summary :

"Today's breakneck pace of change has an immense impact on leaders-and as a result, on the organizations they run. All too often, people remain stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even after others recognize the need for change. Leaders need to learn to pivot even when there are no obvious signals guiding their way. Leadership expert Herminia Ibarra (INSEAD) upends traditional, introspective advice and says act first-and then change your way of thinking. In this unconventional book, Ibarra, one of the world's foremost experts on leadership transitions, provides the first practical guide on how to change when you also need to lead. Defying standard leadership development guidance, which encourages deep self-reflection into strengths and weaknesses, this book shows that the most effective way to change is through action, not analysis, and by learning from experience, not introspection. In short, it will teach you to change from the outside in by first acting like a leader and then thinking like one. Based on Ibarra's flagship executive education program at INSEAD, this book is for new and seasoned leaders alike who need to understand the new rules for success in their own organization, and in the global business environment at large. It's the essential guidebook for anyone who wants to upgrade their role or be the leader their organization needs them to be"--
