In searching for a practical guide to organizations, communities, and different levels of employees, I became frustrated and overwhelmed with the ongoing questions of what is really going on here and what actions to recommend and take. No comprehensive frame existed.
Furthermore, there was no linkage of personal, professional, and organizational realities. Most seminars and consulting focus on one or two of these dimensions and rarely, if ever, put them together. Then too there is the "fad-of-the-week," that was very popular in the past but no longer resonates with employees. I now challenge mission and vision statements, people fixing, authenticity as "walking the talk," spirituality and other popular notions. I offer alternatives that actually work and make an enduring, positive difference.
I took on the challenge--built a comprehensive map to explore different worldly realities, figure out what is really going on and what to do that fits appropriately in different contexts, and match personal, professional, and organizational realities.
SEVEN ZONES FOR LEADERSHIP will guide you into your organization, your function and yourself. It will let you figure out what leadership actions to take to build an enduring and robust organization for the long term. It will also help you assess the contributions of many thinkers in the field of leadership, assess organizational interventions and probe deeply the toughest issues of leadership like courage, fear, and hope.
I hope you benefit from this provocative and comprehensive inquiry into leadership--an amazing concept that opens a window into life that will stun, amaze, and encourage you to understand and live authenticity every day inside yourself and outside in the world.
