Leadership Can Be Learned : Clarity, Connection, and Results, Hardback Book

Leadership Can Be Learned : Clarity, Connection, and Results Hardback


Leadership is poorly understood because human systems are poorly understood.

Like the "flat earth" theory of old, modern work culture is limited by a paradigm in which problems are understood as "clashes of personality,"' and blame is directed at the superficial level of individuals, groups, and structure.

Leadership Can Be Learned: Clarity, Connection, and Results charts the course to a new paradigm of leadership and systems and how to leverage the relationship between the two.

Leadership can be learned because it is a combination of art and science.

Ultimately, high- performance culture and high-performance leadership mirror each other, and leaders must use their own unique strengths to foster both. Gilmore Crosby guides the reader by breaking the topic into four powerful sections.

The first focuses on the transformational leadership model of Dr. Edwin Freidman, the second describes the systems theory from which that leadership model emerged, the third offers a unique exploration of emotional intelligence and critical interpersonal skills related to leadership, and the fourth and final section applies all the previous sections to attaining organizational results.
