What do you think is common between George Washington and the Buddha, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Florence Nightingale……… **Now available also in Portuguese and Spanish** That they were great leaders? True. But did you know that they were also all introverts? From Prasenjeet Kumar, the Amazon #1 best-selling author, comes an outstanding collection of uplifting stories of the greatest leaders of all times that have used their powers of introversion to rewrite History. But hold a second. Can Introverts really lead? And if yes, can they just lead, as any imbecile hereditary heir to the throne is expected to, or provide legendary leadership? * Historically, introverts have NOT only been successful as leaders but ultra-successful! And most of them are so extremely well-known that you will be surprised. * More importantly, they succeeded not because they could overcome their introversion, BUT because of their introversion. * Introverts have been successful in supposedly all extroverted fields of leadership be it military, politics, academics, or religion. Some led their troops into the battlefield while others led quietly, non-violently or passively. So what has made these introverted leaders so successful? * That they had a rich vision or imagination. * Next, these leaders took small but concrete steps to realise their vision. * Third that they had an analytical mind. They took the time to think, plan and act decisively. * And finally, they led more by action and example than by words. So, ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to immerse yourselves into legendary tales of courage and valour shown by quiet, shy and sensitive men and women from all around the world. You will read how these quiet leaders faced the biggest challenges and threats of their lives and how they rose from the ashes like the legendary Phoenix bird but quietly. Like a "Quiet Phoenix," as this series of books is called. This book is for YOU: * If you are an introvert who wants to understand how introverted leaders could lead so effectively; * If you want to improve your self-esteem; * If you are an extrovert who feels that introverts just can’t lead; * If you want to understand leadership qualities or traits in general; or * If you simply love reading uplifting stories of courage and valour.

Leading Quietly

Type: BOOK - Published: 2002 - Publisher: Harvard Business Press

Badaracco (business ethics, Harvard) observes that the most effective leaders are rarely public heroes or high-profile champions of causes. His study of "quiet leadership," carried out over four years, presents a series of stories describing quiet leaders at work and drawing practical lessons for executives and aspiring corporate leaders. The cases include a hospital CEO dealing with a case of sexual harassment; a bank president under pressure to remove underperforming but longtime employees; and a high-tech marketing rep who learned that his company was dumping obsolete equipment on its small customers.

This book spotlights how women leaders behave in chaotic environments and features examples of women who have been key figures in determining complex socio-economic outcomes throughout history. Women leaders can be seen on many high- levels in the political arena, be they a prime minister, empress or opinion leader. From Kösem Sultan of the Ottoman Empire to Benazir Bhutto, women leaders have had an undeniable effect on modern history. Is it possible to understand the current role of women in politics in Turkey without the First Lady Emine Erdoğan? Can we analyze Europe’s future without Angela Merkel? There are many different books about women leaders' biography or memoirs of persons who worked closely with them. However, until now, no in-depth scientific analysis of such women leaders with respect to chaos and complexity theory has been available. This work represents a unique and important step towards filling this gap in research, and includes an epilogue presenting women’s leadership model visualized by an eight-pointed star.

Leadership is much more than a management technique: it is possessing the insight to see where it is possible to make a difference, and also having the tools to make that difference. Leadership for the 21st Century defines leadership, explains how it is practiced, and provides a rich portrait of what it is to be a leader, covering relevant and timely topics such as the importance of diversity, the role of social media in 21st-century leadership, and how to pass a leadership role on to another. It provides priceless information not only on what constitutes successful leadership but also illuminates why leadership falters. Based primarily upon research, this book assembles leadership lessons from more than 100 biographies and autobiographies of a diverse group of leaders, including individuals from the worlds of science, economics, business, and human rights, and also includes thought on leadership derived from of many other individuals representing both leaders and those who follow the leaders. As a result, the author presents not only a clear "how-to" guidebook for those wishing to lead, but also a comprehensive, multifaceted examination of leadership from several relevant perspectives.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2019-08-30 - Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Self-Action Leadership (Volumes 1 and 2) provides the first, and only, books of their kind in the academic world today. This two volume set single-handedly carves out a new and unique scholarly niche by providing the first comprehensive and secular manual to holistically address society’s universal need for personal leadership and character education. Its single-minded aim is the global promotion and proliferation of leadership, character, and life skills education in nations, communities, organizations, schools, homes, and individual lives everywhere. The concept of Self-Action Leadership (SAL) is rooted in 30 years of extensive research spanning the fields of self-leadership, leadership, action research, character education, and autoethnography. In addition to drawing on the scholarship of these extant fields, SAL simultaneously builds upon them by introducing an original theory and model that executives, administrators, scholars, teachers, and practitioners alike can universally utilize to their own advantages and to the benefit of their colleagues, subordinates, and students. Volume II—The Self-Action Leadership Model—contains the last four book sections and the appendices for the combined volumes, including the Freedom Focused Corporate Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Professional Morality and Guilty Bystanding

Type: BOOK - Published: 2008-12-18 - Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Work as center of life has such an important role in our lives; it bears a standard by which we measure our success. It is a major component of self-actualization and well-being. Professional life offers the hope of rewarding work, not just financially but work that is fulfilling. However, professions are also riddled with complexities and ethical conflicts that obstruct the goal of meaningful work. Our jobs are fraught with moral ambiguities and dilemmas; these become sources of frustration and alienation. What is needed is a transformation, a renewal of our professional lives and the institutional contexts in which we operate, to humanize the alienating aspects of work and professions. Thomas Merton (1915-1968), though a cloistered monk, wrote extensively on spiritual and social issues. He has been called "a spiritual master" for contemporary times. He possessed an uncanny sense of self-awareness and moral imagination. His life and writings have inspired countless persons on life’s spiritual journey. Yet, while people have looked to Merton for guidance on spiritual issues, the implications of his thought for several other areas of life are open to exploration. This book focuses on the significance of his reflections in Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, which offer one the confidence to embark on a journey that seeks to transcend the complexities of professional life, and courage to transform the negative features of workplaces and organizations through reasoned moral action, moral imagination, and leadership.

The call to lead and the call to holiness are profoundly intertwined. But in our world today, what does it even mean to be a leader? What does it even mean to be holy? Using the timeless and transcendent wisdom of the saints and the latest findings in business and social science, this book takes an insightful examination of the leadership principles demonstrated in the lives of the saints and their applicability to our modern everyday lives. Faced with challenges where their faith and even their lives hung in the balance, the saints responses exemplify what are authentic, effective, and inspirational models of leadership that we can use to guide us to our eternal destination. Echoing the words of Saint Francis of Assisi, Come along, Ill show you how. Let us call on Francis, Dominic, Ignatius, Francis Xavier, Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Maximilian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II, and countless others who have gone before us to be our companions and guides, illuminating the path for us as we step up to lead and move forward to journey towards Christ.
