Becoming a leader should be one of the greatest ambitions a person could ever have. Leading other people seems to be such an honorable thing, which has potential to elevate one’s status with prestige, honor, and so on. It is so true that I will spend my lifetime to encourage you all to go for it, to fight with your soul and spirit—except with your body—to step after Mahatma Gandhi who was able to lead India to its independence using non-violent fight—in order to reach this mountaintop. However, it is not without prices and responsibilities. It seems that a leader’s responsibilities are greater than his rights in such a point there is nothing to gain in leading other people. It would have been better to be led than to be leading. So leadership would bring more pain to a leader’s life than satisfaction. However, as leadership must be about serving others and the spirit of service leads to greatness, it is good to aspire to become a leader. Now, what does it take for one to become a leader? Responding to this question will be all our endeavors in writing this book.

People yearn for leaders who are authentic, who show their own face and not a game face, who find and use their voice in appropriate ways and act with a tangible sense of integrity. Those who engage in the process of leadership--each of us, at some point--want to do so as our true self. But staying true to one's self is not easy. We are continually moving in and out of authenticity. We are present one moment and absent the next. We often say "yes" when we want to say "no." We act from our core values some of the time, but give them a wink when the heat is on. There is no formula for being integral and authentic. Becoming and being ourselves requires confidence and courage. Drawing on the author's 40 years in leadership training, this book discusses the things we can do along the way--recognizing our strengths and limitations, speaking truth to power, trusting our companions--as we strive to fulfill our leadership potential.

Second Edition, Expanded to Include Fresh Insights and Practical Tools For New and Experienced Managers No book has captured the trials and traumas of the transition from star performer to competent manager better than Linda Hill's classicBecoming a Manager. In tracing and analyzing the experiences of nineteen new managers, Hill reveals the profound complexity and difficulty of the process of developing into a manager. In their own distinct voices, these managers describe how they reframed their understanding of their roles and responsibilities and how they coped with the stresses and emotions of the transformation-in essence, how they were able to take on new identities. Now, in a substantially expanded second edition, the author offers concrete advice on the crucial issues of dealing effectively with organizational politics and developing and leading diverse teams in times of change, as well as on how managers can prepare themselves to lead over the course of their careers. In a new epilogue, she explores what organizations can do to help managers in their journey to lead and learn.
