Contents Notes
"We live in a time of danger and opportunity. Individuals, organizations, communities, and countries must continuously adapt to new realities just to survive. Wanting more, wanting to thrive even under constantly shifting and often perilous conditions, people in all sectors are called on to lead with the courage and skill to challenge the status quo, deploy themselves with agility, and mobilize others to step into the unknown. Ron Heifetz first mapped a bold new theory of "adaptive leadership" in the seminal book Leadership Without Easy Answers. This was followed by the bestselling Leadership on the Line, in which he and longtime Harvard colleague Marty Linsky offered a compelling set of arguments and stories showing how to lead and stay alive through the dangers of change. Now Heifetz and Linsky, joined by Alexander Grashow, have distilled the learning from their combined sixty-plus years of leadership consulting, teaching, and training around the globe into a practical hands-on guide to making your leadership both more effective and more powerful. The Practice of Adaptive Leadership will help you think more clearly and execute better in a constantly shifting environment. It offers a comprehensive and systematic approach to candidly assessing the situation and yourself, and then taking action. Its wisdom and advice are drawn from the experiences of people like you, committed to advancing what you care about most. The book is anchored in the framework of adaptive leadership, but goes beyond the theory to provide a practical set of stories, diagrams, techniques, and activities that will help you both assess and address the toughest challenges that lie ahead. Dozens of tools and tactics are presented in an exciting, clear, and reader-friendly design. The Practice of Adaptive Leadership is your handbook to meeting the challenges of leadership in a complex and rapidly changing world." --
