Leading Every Moment
Each of us has the potential for a leadership moment. Reading this book will help you find yours.” ―Dr. Marty Linsky, faculty at Harvard Kennedy School & author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership
#1 New Release in Business & Money Skills and Office Management
You face leadership moments every day. Would you recognize a leadership moment if it came your way? Would you know what to do when it did?
You can be a leader. Your Leadership Moment brings adaptive leadership to life for novices and advanced leadership practitioners alike. The framework it provides draws on the extensive personal research, travel, conversations, and reflections of author Eric Martin, a prominent leadership expert. His quest to democratize leadership has taken him around the world―from the White House and corporate boardrooms to the foothills of the Himalayas. Through poignant stories of both success and failure, Your Leadership Moment teaches what’s possible when people discover the capacity and courage to lead regardless of identity, history, or access to power and financial capital.
You can change the world. Your Leadership Moment is an unforgettable account of the democratizing leadership of three ordinary people leading extraordinary change. It’s an exciting expansion of Adaptive Leadership―an unconventional and provocative leadership practice developed at Harvard University―that can help anyone learn to lead. It provides practical tools and techniques to discover and leverage your own leadership moments in the service of creating a more beautiful world.
In this book you’ll understand:
- A Leadership Moment and the key concepts of Adaptive Leadership
- How to stop solving the wrong problems and start solving the right problems
- How to think politically and mobilize others to make real, positive change
Readers of leadership books like The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, Leadership on the Line, or Immunity to Change should read Your Leadership Moment.
