The Drama of Leadership

The power struggles between these types are dramas being played out in companies everywhere. Whether the story has a happy or an unhappy ending depends entirely upon which type gets top billing.

As a member of the board of directors of several major international financial services corporations, Patricia Pitcher was in a privileged position to observe the inner workings of the corporate world. What she witnessed was a crisis of leadership rooted in a misunderstanding of what leading is all about. Not content to simply offer an opinion-opinions come cheap-she embarked on an eight-year research project to document the reasons for the rapid collapse of a global giant. That collapse, she shows us, began with one critical succession error and was compounded by a chronic failure to understand the importance of personality in the leadership equation. One wrong person at the helm turned a dream into a nightmare. In The Drama of Leadership, Patricia Pitcher shares her findings and, in the process, explodes a number of popular myths about leadership, including the one that leadership and vision are qualities that can be taught in management seminars. She refutes the common belief that leaders are in short supply and proves that the corporate talent pool abounds with potential leaders whose talents either go unrecognized or are tragically undervalued. And she explains why, at a time when vision, innovation, humanity, and passion are so desperately needed, so many companies cast in leadership roles people who possess none of these qualities, and who distrust anyone who does. But who are the good and bad leaders, and how do you identify them? In answer to this question, Patricia Pitcher identifies three types of leaders: Artists, who are people-oriented, open-minded, intuitive, and visionary; Craftsmen, to whom the adjectives "humane," "dedicated," and "wise" best apply; and Technocrats - brilliant and well-schooled in the latest theory, they are detail-oriented, rigid, methodical, self-centered, and, when left in control, pose a serious threat to corporate competitiveness. The power struggles between these types are dramas being played out in companies everywhere. Whether the story has a happy or an unhappy ending depends entirely upon which type gets top billing. The author also offers her wise recommendations on what companies can do to protect themselves against a technocratic hegemony and how to cultivate the talents of Artists and Craftsmen. She also tells you how to determine what type of leader you are and how to interact with other types to achieve both personal and corporate success. The Drama of Leadership is an articulate, insightful, passionate appeal to develop the kind of leaders and organizations that can take us into the twenty-first century.

Why are there so many books written about effective leadership today? Due to negative attitudes and thought patters, our current society is producing poor leaders who are leading the society to self-destruction. The messages being communicating to leaders are creating people who are attracting greed, selffishness and the opposite behaviors needed to be effective. Leaders in all areas of society like parents, coaches, teachers, administrators, and managers, all must re-examine their dominating thoughts about leadership if they want to achieve their goals. Because of the law of attraction, the leader's dominating thoughts will determine his/her level of success. The most dominating thought that a leader must possess is faith. Faith in God, in your abilities and other people abilities is the key to success. Leadership behaviors, whether it is motivating others, setting goals, hiring or firing empolyees, is continguent upon a leader's level of faith. Along with discussing why society is currently failing to reinforce faith, this book provides practical solutions that leaders can use to improve their effectivness. A model of leadership is presented in which the leader's dominating thoughts influence the behaviors that produce the result that the leader was thinking about, positive or negative. The key for the leader is to examine those thoughts to make sure they are positive faith thoughts about your creator, your abilities, and other people

Transform Your Organization by Scaling Leadership How do senior leaders, in their own words, describe the most effective leaders—the ones that get results, grow the business, enhance the culture and leave in their wake a trail of other really effective leaders? Conversely, how do senior leaders describe the kind of leader that undercuts the organization’s capacity and capability to create its future? This book, based on groundbreaking research, shows how senior leaders describe and develop leadership that works, that does not, that scales, and that limits scale. Is your leadership built for scale as you advance in today’s volatile, uncertain, dynamic, and disruptive business environment? This context puts a premium on a very particular kind of leadership—High-Creative leadership capable of rapidly growing the organization while simultaneously transforming it into more agile, innovative, adaptive and engaging workplace. The research presented in this book suggests that senior leaders can describe the High-Creative leadership with surprising clarity. They also describe with equal precision the High-Reactive leadership that cancels itself out and seriously limits scale. Which type of leader are you? You scale your leadership by increasing the multiple on your leadership in three ways. First, by developing the strengths that differentiate the most effective leaders from the strengths deployed by the most Reactive and ineffective leaders. And second, by increasing your leadership ratio—the ratio of most the effective strengths to the most damaging liabilities. Third, by developing High-Creative leaders all around you. Scaling Leadership provides a proven framework for magnifying agile and scalable leadership in your organization. Scalable leadership drives forward-momentum by multiplying high-achieving leaders at scale so that growth, productivity and innovation increase exponentially. Creative leaders multiply their strengths beyond technical competence by leading in deep relationship, with radical humanity, passion and integrity. Drawing upon decades of solid research and experience enhancing individual capability and collective leadership effectiveness with Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, the authors provide an innovative and efficient framework to help you: Take stock of your own personal balance of leadership strengths and weaknesses Scale your leadership in deep relationship and high integrity Proliferate high-achievers throughout your organization’s leadership system Identify ineffective leadership and course-correct quickly Transform your organization by transforming leadership Scaling Leadership is an invaluable tool for executives, managers, and leaders in business, academia, nonprofit organizations, and more. This innovative resource provides effective techniques, real-world examples, and expert guidance for organizations seeking to improve performance, align and execute strategies, and transform their business with scalable leadership capability.

History has shown us that leadership can come from anywhere, from anyone. Some of the most recognizable names in history–Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi–came from nothing. Some other recognizable names–Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Alexander the Great–came from great privilege. That's the beauty of leadership: its impartial to upbringing. History has also shown us that the world's greatest leaders come from all different fields. Albert Einstein is universally recognized as an innovative thought leader in science, while Mary Wollstonecraft is universally recognized as an innovative thought leader in the march towards women's rights. The bounds are endless. This book is a culmination of the great leaders of the world, ranking them based on two factors: leadership ability and impact on the world. It analyzes how the upbringing and life experiences of each of the chosen leaders influenced their leadership style, and what lessons can be pulled from them. The selected leaders impacted a broad range of people throughout their lives, and from many different platforms, from world leaders, to civil rights leaders, to philosophical leaders, to economic leaders, company leaders, and even to nation-building leaders. Every type of leader out there is examined in depth within these covers.

ARE YOU A LEADER? If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. -John Quincy Adams I am so excited to share with you the seven key areas I believe will make you the finest leader that God called you to be. These principles have worked for me and many great leaders that have impacted their generations from as far back as the Bible days. This material can be used to train and equip minsters or leaders in various ministries. Whether you are a Sunday school teacher or a Pastor this will help you. I also will like to invite those that are not leaders yet, but have a heart to serve and are potential future leaders. Remember though that every one of us can become a leader, in fact you will be amazed at how many people look up to you. Even the most introverted people inspire someone out there. Therefore, I want you to know that there is leadership in you. I have been a student of great leadership and ministries now for some time and I am amazed at the common principles that all great leaders share in common. I know there are many books on this subject and we have excellent well known teachers and ministers that equip leaders, but I will love to impart my knowledge and experiences that I believe God wants me to share with you. All great leaders have a mark and message that they are called to share; I am sharing mine and in the process inspiring you to share your message too. Your assignment carries a mandate and commission from God, no one else can do it other than you, it is specially designed to suit your background and experience....
