Description
A Culture of Leadership--Lessons Learned and Shared explores the many attributes of excellence in individual leadership, as well as how successful leaders can develop an organizational culture distinguished by an engaged workforce that is focused on high quality results and continual improvement.  It is designed as a toolkit to assist leaders at all career points--entry level, mid-career and top executive--to strive for best performance.  The perspectives shared are supported by stories of real-life experiences of the author and his professional colleagues.  Each chapter is supplemented with exercises calling into action the key learning points, making the book a valuable training tool.

The book provides an overview of the continuum of management challenges, from determining the right pathway for successful career entry and progression, to the process of analytic decision-making, to understanding and successfully influencing disparate groups, to navigating new and unfamiliar work environments.  The concepts shared have applicability at all management levels and challenge leaders to take deeper dives into the learning experiences offered by the day-to-day challenges they face in their roles.    

A Culture of Leadership--Lessons Learned and Shared is also a call-to-arms as the challenges shaping our future become evermore complex and daunting.  Only through better leadership preparation and inspiration can we hope to transcend dysfunction and to achieve solutions to the existential challenges we face today and in coming generations.
