Written by Fortune 100 executive Dan Gallagher, The Self-Aware Leader is a unique approach on how to become a more effective leader by increasing self-awareness in four pillars of leadership. By integrating the concepts of reinvention, servant leadership, and business transformation into a single framework that has been validated in research, The Self Aware Leader emphasises taking a calculated approach to change rather than merely reacting to change. The Self-Aware Leader also helps readers recognise three basic truths which are crucial to success within organisations: approaches to management have a shelf life; middle managers are frequently caught between “a rock and a hard place”; and, with conservatism on the rise, becoming and remaining an effective leader is extremely complex. This book offers two key takeaways: 1) a new mental framework on leadership more appropriate for today’s business conditions; and 2) a functional, practical plan for putting the newly learned concepts presented into daily practice.

Many organizations have invested in the skills and structures of change, but have forgotten the more intangible quality of spirit. As a result, their changes have been short-lived, their adaptability slow, and their ability to move to the "next level" nonexistent. The absence of spirit (even with all the right skills and structures) has prevented these organizations from developing a self-motivated desire to change for the common good. Indeed, the absence of spirit has led to abject resistance to change.

This book examines the outlook for the survival of humanity in the burgeoning threats to our species by our species. The subject is addressed from many perspectives including the basic nature of the human psyche, evolutionary theory, quantum physics, neuroscience, & the evolvement of order as this process relates to the life forces of individual organisms & their species. Richter develops the brief that an optimistic prognosis for human survival is justified only if human beings can do more than pay lip service to the concept of free will. Presented here is a strong scientific argument in support of the existence of free will as a valid human attribute. The book is written to be understood not only by scientists but by interested non-scientists as well. Richter is a physical chemist who, a few years ago, began to wonder whether the human species can escape self-extinction by its own clever devices.

Across the country, highly competitive, self-directed work teams (SDWTs) are chalking up astonishing productivity gains. These work teams are replacing entrenched, autocratic, boss-driven organizations whose management styles are obsolete. Driving these remarkable workplace success stories is a new breed of supervisor who empowers teams through example and commitment, instead of by demanding obedience and control. Drawing upon the actual experiences of hundreds of team leaders in such self-directed workplaces as Kodak, Apple, Corning, Shell, and many others, Leading Self-Directed Work Teams reveals how supervisors in any company - large or small - an take advantage of the career-boosting leadership skills that make and keep major corporations competitive. This timely book takes a refreshingly candid look at the challenges, intricacies, and rewards of changing from a traditional supervisor to a confident SDWT leader. It focuses on hundreds of practical, time-tested techniques for developing the business, interpersonal, and technical capabilities of any team. And it explains step-by-step how you can master such crucial team leadership skills as coaching, business analysis, barrier busting, facilitating groups, customer advocacy, accessing information, and much more. Along the way, the author profiles the most innovative team leader practices learned from Kodak's 13 Room and Procter & Gamble experiments, demonstrating the remarkable benefits of managing by principle rather than by policy, and setting boundaries that change as the team matures. Leading Self-Directed Work Teams guides you confidently through each of the five evolutionary phases most SDWTs experience during their maturation, detailing the specific skills and behaviors required to meet this sequence of challenges. For exceptional utility, it provides a weekly activity guide to help team leaders remember critical activities, supplies a special chapter focusing on "3 days in the life of a team leader," and shows how to quickly test and interpret your thoughts and behaviors about team leadership. Whether you're a supervisor or CEO - whether your team is a small group of office workers or a Fortune 100 company - discover how to excite, energize, and inspire team members by developing the vision and guiding principles for effective team leadership; fostering coordination, clarity, and consistency without restricting autonomy and creativity; giving and obtaining feedback in a constructive, nondefensive manner; ending temper flare-ups, grievances, and eroding trust among team members; dealing with team members, peers, and senior managers resistant to the new work paradigm; deciding when appropriate management intervention is not only acceptable, but required; and making decisions in real time without traditional wasted periods. In today's rapidly changing marketplace, the competitive edge belongs to those organizations that capitalize on the full potential of their human and technical resources. Leading Self-Directed Work Teams gives you the skills, insights, and confidence to adapt to today's indispensable leader-facilitator role and guide newly empowered, participative teams to their full potential.
