A Practical Guide for Ordinary Heroes Who are the really effective leaders, nowadays? What does it take to lead this way? And how do they do it? Living Leadership is the first leadership book for people, like you, who have to deliver results working with the reality of the challenges in your business, the people in your team and the personality that you bring to work. An insightful and practical lesson in how real leaders behave, day by day, this book delivers a new way of seeing leadership, and new ways of living it. Built on a unique four-year experiment working alongside real leaders in real businesses, Living Leadership explodes the myth of the charismatic, transformational leader, to show that real progress comes from the dramatically ordinary stuff of leadership. From building relationships - not starting revolutions, by working with the grain of your organisation - not against it, and in knowing your limitations as much as pushing every boundary. Living Leadership will help you to discover within yourself the means to make real connections with people and make things happen in the real world. "Practical, challenging, potentially liberating and timely.Most of all, it is humane and passionate. It deserves attention. " "People Management" "Leaders are only effective when they work with and not apart from their organizations, as this important book makes plain. Anyone who has to run or lead anything should find space for it on their bookshelves." "Accounting & Business" "...a refreshing and engaging break from the torrent of formulaic, sanctimonious self-help guides ...peppered with incisive observations on redefining leadership in terms of the realities and choices that 'ordinary mortals' in organisations face ...there are some excellent practical lessons of good leadership, which will be helpful to managers and executives looking for long-term effectiveness" "Management Today" "Living Leadership shows how, when you take away the myths and misconceptions, leading can genuinely be made easier." Hans Straberg, CEO, Electrolux
