part 1

What it is

In Part 1 we explore what Living Leadership is. Chapter 1 summarises the whole picture. In Chapter 2 we look at letting go of the widespread assumption that leaders should be transforming heroes – a picture that is difficult to shake off because so many managers take it for granted and can’t see any alternative.

We then explore the three big themes of Living Leadership:

  • chapter 3get connected: how you can connect effectively with others;
  • chapter 4get real: how you can practise the art of the possible and not get caught up in fantasies about changing the world;
  • chapter 5get help: how you can “be your best” if you value your experience of life and make good use of both your strengths and your apparent weaknesses.
