Leadership: The Inner Side of Greatness
IN THIS SUMMARY
Leaders are not born; they are developed. Furthermore, leadership is not a characteristic confined to business, but is a way of thinking and a way of living. In the thoroughly revised Leadership: The Inner Side of Greatness, Koestenbaum explores how world events have caused people to rethink their lives and to seek greater meaning in their daily activities. Through his Leadership Diamond model, Koestenbaum shows how a manager can become a leader and give that meaning to life through work. He focuses on the four strategies that all leaders have in common--vision, reality, ethics, and courage. Through his book and his model, Koestenbaum shows how to incorporate these strategies into daily life.
Leadership rests on the shoulders of individuals at all levels of the organization. Everyone must have a clear picture of the business and must be a leader in that business.
