Summary of The Leadership Wheel
Five Steps for Achieving Individual and Organizational Greatness
The wheel of leadership has four spokes: teacher, nurturer, visionary and warrior. In the center is the sage.
C. Clinton Sidle finds leadership lessons in psychologist Carl Jung's categorization of human personality into archetypes based on ancient mythological symbols and in Jung's belief that each person travels on a "heroic journey" through life. Sidle adapts these Jungian ideas and the symbol of the wheel to create a paradigm of business leadership that individuals, teams and organizations can use to reach their goals. Because he tries to fit so many concepts into his wheel, readers may feel after a while that they are spinning in circles. Nonetheless, the book is loaded with useful exercises and examples. Although Sidle's approach is esoteric, getAbstract recommends it to managers with a spiritual bent who want to develop their leadership qualities and discover a style that suits them.
In this summary, you will learn
- Which strengths and weaknesses characterize the five aspects of the "leadership wheel"; and
- How to use the wheel to become a strong leader and to build a resilient organization.
