According to organizational psychologist Bob Rosen, having strong roots in six areas of personal “health” influences what you do and how you perform as a “healthy leader.” He explains how your “physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational and spiritual” well-being affect your work as a leader. His extensive treatment highlights leadership values, goals, habits and capabilities, and inspires you to reflect on your practices by posing provocative questions. Every chapter starts with “warning signs” that indicate a decline in leadership health. getAbstract recommends Rosen’s wholesome food for thought to current and new leaders who aspire to achieve more aware, healthier leadership practices.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to become a “healthy” leader by developing your leadership roots;
- How your “physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational and spiritual” well-being form your leadership identity; and
- How to build your leadership health.
