Summary Annotation There's no script for being a great leader & no way to play act in the role. It's the inner work that counts the most. Leaders who shine have the insight to examine their own lives the influence of their families, the guidance of teachers & the force of momentous events & translate that information into a "habit of mind" for persevering in the face of obstacles & instilling commitment & confidence in others. In this inspiring, deeply felt book, two prominent psychologists whose unique backgrounds are evident in their bold, fresh approach to leadership highlight more than 50 individuals whose life experiences & relationships have been shaped into a guiding force for leading & living. Readers learn about people like:Ruth Simmons, president of Smith College & the first African-American women to head a major college, who learned the value of good work from her mother, a domestic worker, Jim Sinegal, CEO of Costco, who learned the virtue of sharing credit as a young employee of retail legend Sol Price, Cathleen Black, president of the Hearst magazine empire, who learned to dig in & stay firm from her father, who lost his eyesight but never his pluck, Plus 62 more exceptional leaders, from a Native American tribal chief to a symphony orchestra conductor, from an inner-city school principle to a Fortune 100 CEO. THE INNER WORK OF LEADERS will change the way you think about leadership. It offers a fresh, strategic approach to becoming a leader ... & helps us understand how the most effective leaders, like all peak performers, are made & not born.-Charles Garfield, Ph. D., author of Peak Performers & Wisdom Circles.
