Executive coach Marlene Chism believes few leaders get proper leadership training. She argues that many executives, managers and supervisors can’t even identify the components of effective leadership. Leaders often default to automatic pilot. They rarely even see the need to overhaul their philosophies and practices, even though the main reason employees leave jobs is a poor relationship with the boss. Chism shows you how to use “alignment, awareness and accountability” to avoid being that kind of boss. She can be a tad repetitive, though her observations and advice are on target and solid. getAbstract recommends her insights to executives, managers, entrepreneurs and anyone seeking to develop professionally and spiritually.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “enlightened” leadership requires “alignment, awareness and accountability”;
- How to be an enlightened leader,
- How such leaders balance awareness of the self, others, culture and spirituality and
- Which issues arise when you live your values.
