Summary

"The world is crying out for leadership. In both the crises that affect the future of the globe and the urgent everyday issues that confront organizations and communities, the time is at hand to pause, to step back and ask ourselves, What is leadership and what is expected of us as leaders?" "Authentic Leadership offers a unique orientation to leadership as well as a practical set of tools and resources that leaders can use to enhance their everyday leadership action. Leadership, Robert W. Terry contends, is a type of action. He shows how this shift in perspective carries enormous consequences for consideration of courage, vision, ethics, and spirituality as they relate to leadership. Terry shows that the central organizing principle of leadership is authenticity. And he shows how authenticity and action joined together form a sure foundation for effective leadership."--BOOK JACKET.
