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.

Transformative Spaces explores the principles of authentic leadership and how it can be developed among urban Ethiopian women to affect social change. Set within a context that is not conducive to women's accelerated climb up the positional ladder, the book argues that transformative spaces are powerful platforms enabling women to challenge cultural factors that impede their leadership potential. Through a personal story of self-transformation, weaved in with other Ethiopian women's experiences with one such transformative space - the Association of Women in Business (AWiB) - the book proposes that such spaces are important in initiating self-transformation.

If organizations want diversity and inclusion they should consider authentic leaders. This book explores the full complement of authentic leadership to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Author: Robin Kelley
Publisher: Independently Published
Organizations striving to create a more diverse and inclusive organization, and workplace environment should consider authentic leadership. Authentic leadership qualities and strategies drive diversity and inclusive principles. Authentic leaders do not merely sit on the sidelines and assign diversity to units or an individual. As authentic leaders drive change while listening to all the voices of their followers. These leaders are self-aware and encourage others to be self-aware. Most critically, authentic leaders bring their authentic selves to the workplace and encourage as well as empower others to bring their authentic selves to the workplace. Authentic leadership practices position the organization to evolve organically without leadership solely driving the change. Leaders are required to be engaged in diversity and inclusion work for success. Moreover, leaders must develop skills and competencies to drive organizational change. Change is challenging, personal, but imperative for the success of the organization, brand, and the organization's customers. If organizations want diversity and inclusion they should consider authentic leaders. This book explores the full complement of authentic leadership to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

In today’s complex global business scenario, the Charismatic Leader is the organization’s transformation specialist. His holistic quest raises the organization above internal and external complexities to turn in high quality growth balanced by the five existential imensions: Economic, Emotional, Intellectual, Cultural and Spiritual. The end result is far greater than the parts. The harmony of these five dimensions produces the sixth dimension: organic evolution. Charisma, the magnetic spiritual force, is born of the alchemy of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos (in that order). Ethos is what you decide you are about and what you value. It gives you the criteria for making life decisions. Pathos is how you relate to others, and reflects your own personal mastery, derived from deep-rooted beliefs and values. Logos is about your dreams, mission and purpose. The Charismatic Leader is deeply aware of his Inner Self, and divines his own Truths, the substance of divine nature, in his reflection periods. He relentlessly walks the path of those Truths with conscious global mindfulness, focusing on the spirit of Self- Evolution and not the act of walking. You cannot psych yourself into self-compassion or peace of mind. It comes when your life is in harmony with your Truths. A leader’s personal mastery comes from self-awareness and the lifelong process of experiencing and learning.This book is for everyone who wants to transcend into being a Charismatic Leader in the new age. The text supports current trends in leadership towards sustainability, employee engagement, work/life integration, collaboration, coaching, and worldwide connectivity. It is a counter narrative to beliefs of entitlement and self-indulgence at the expense of earned competency. This volume is an excellent reference for leadership courses in uIniversities, for trainers and business leaders, as well as for the young reader in search of greater self-awareness. I particularly liked [the]emphasis on… self-management over dependence, inspiration over autocratic leadership, spiritual awareness over constant electronic stimulus without introspection, and a focus outward to serving others over short term gains.

Ken Blanchard from Servant-Leadership Revisited "With the traditional pyramid, the boss is always responsible and the staff are supposed to be responsive to the boss. When you turn the pyramid upside down, those roles get reversed. Your people become responsible and the job of management is to be responsive to their people. That creates a very different environment for implementation. If you work for your people, then what is the purpose of being a manager? To help them accomplish their goals. Your job is to help them win." Shann Ray Ferch, PhD, Professor of Leadership, Gonzaga University "In an elegant and evocative rendering of the life of one of the world's great servant leaders, Edeh, Dr. Amah has given us a glimpse of global servant leadership and a true vision of the kind of leaders we need to help heal the heart of the world. Dr. Amah's book is a resource with global implications and with the honesty and tenderness that move us forward as human beings and that restore us to the deepest and most vital expressions of our collective humanity. In envisioning for us the life and impact of Emmanuel Edeh, Nigerian and global servant leader, Dr. Amah gives hope to the people of every continent, and in fact helps us reach as global citizens for one another in hope and love and good service. This hope is established first in the person, then the collective, and finally the world. Peter Amah has given us a guide to that hope, and placed in our hands the gift that leads us from the despair of the past to a future graced by discernment and love."

Critically examine the intersections of learning and leadership. Using L. Dee Fink's taxonomy of signicant learning as a scaffold, experts in leadership education explain connections between emerging scholarship of teaching and learning and current trends in leadership, how to develop a more complex understanding of the levers of leadership learning, the environments that promote meaningful and measurable leadership learning, and the evidence behind such a practice. This volume examines: the role of leadership educator, the roles of authenticity (being true to one’s self) and criticality in education (interrogating beliefs and questioning power dynamics), select learning theories and their implications for leadership learning, and strategies for constructing leadership-related learning outcomes and assessing leadership learning. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.
