Corporate America take heed. You're doing it wrong! For decades organizations large and small have applied various approaches to leadership and wondered why time-worn lessons fail to deliver results. Now, in her path-breaking book, Learning, Loving, Leading: Stepping Down to the Leadership Challenge, Dr. Sherri Hebert reveals why the keys to organizational success are so frequently (at best) overlooked or (at worst) recognized but ignored. Inspired by Robert K. Greenleaf's writings on Servant Leadership, Dr. Hebert takes the concept of "leader as servant" to a new and exciting level. Drawing on the counterintuitive nature of true leadership, she turns traditional thinking on its head, clearly and convincingly demonstrating that leadership effectiveness can only be achieved by leaders with the courage, vision, and humility to "step down" from ego-driven perspectives of the leadership role, and learn to serve the needs of those they aspire to lead. Filled with insight and the results of new research, Learning, Loving, Leading: Stepping Down to the Leadership Challenge will captivate readers whether they are aspiring leaders or those who choose to follow. Dr. Sherri Hebert hits the right note at the right time, ensuring that we'll never think about leadership in the same old way again.
