9780470688281: The Persuasive Leader: Lessons from the Arts

The communication aspect of leadership – to actively engage your followers and achieve understanding and motivation whilst making the message memorable – has never been more important. Using vivid lessons and examples from spheres outside business organization, The Persuasive Leader explores the leader's role as a communicator and teaches the fundamental principles of successful leadership.

This book provides insights and principles about persuasive leadership from a broad range of human experiences. It draws on examples of persuasive leaders and persuasive leadership principles from the performing arts, the fine arts, literature, philosophical writings, and biography. The authors use their unconventional material to explore themes such as moral leadership, toxic leadership, learning from failures, 'distributed' leadership, leading for results and the leader as a mentor and counsellor.

Leaders described in The Persuasive Leader:

Abraham Lincoln, Jack Welch, Cleopatra, Teddy Roosevelt, Alexander the Great, Rachel Carson, Joshua Chamberlain, Governor John Winthrop, Barack Obamma, Steve Jobs, Henry V, Julius Caesar, John Quincy Adams, Dwight Eisenhower, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Huey Long, Napoleon, Ghandi, Sam Walton, Archbishop Sean O'Malley, Benjamin Franklin, Franklin Roosevelt, Jim Sinegal, Dolly Madison, James Jones, Clarence Darrow, William Harvey, Ronald Reagan, Fletcher Christian, Thomas Jefferson, Nelson Mandela, Charles McCormick, George Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Joan of Arc, John Kennedy, Herbert Hoover, Christopher Columbus, Anita Roddick, John DeLorean, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and others less well known persuasive leaders such as Anne Sullivan, TS Lin, Maria Galantry, Dorothy Collins, Scott Nash, Jane Hughes, William Barnes.
