The Leaders We Have Vs. the Leadership We Need

by David Milstone Ed. D

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
A great deal of public attention has recently focused on the actions of people in leadership positions. Unfortunately, much of this attention has spotlighted negative leadership. The public trust in politicians is at near historic lows. Is it any wonder that the more often people hear about local, national, and global news, the less they trust their leaders? In so many ways, at a time when the need for effective leadership has grown, effective leadership has deteriorated and needs to be fixed. Too often we are finding that the leaders we have do not possess or demonstrate traits and skills that we need them to have. As a result, until we change our expectations and behaviors in this regard, we will continue to hire and elect individuals to leadership positions who are quite like what we have now―largely ineffective. This book argues for a different path for the leaders of tomorrow. It looks at the state of leaders in this country and around the world, replaces old leadership questions with new ones, and offers a new paradigm from which to search for and find the leadership we need for the future.
