Lead is a different kind of book. Rather than being the"last word" on leading others, it is meant to be the"first word"--an invitation to the reader toreflect on what the leadership journey means to each and everyindividual.
At its core, Lead will benefit anyone who seeks toinspire, influence, or lead others, whether they are coaches, teachers, pastors, community organizers, politicians--or arein the C-suite.
Lead offers an exploration of the essential elements ofleadership, which author Gary Burnison defines as: purpose, strategy, people, measure, empower, reward, anticipate, navigate, communicate, listen, and learn--all of which culminate inleading. Instead of taking the left-brain approach of"paradigm shifts" and "leadership models,"the author focuses on right-brain constants such as emotionalconnection, compassion, focusing on others, humility, and managingoneself. Lead readers will find inspiring stories, easy to digestanalogies, reflective exercises and evocative images meant to givethem pause, draw them in, and encourage introspection.
