REAL Leadership: Waken to Wisdom
By Susan Robertson
Leaders today are often unconscious and unaware of how their learned fears, egos, and personality flaws adversely affect their effectiveness in dealing with others. Their followers are not engaged, not motivated, and not performing at their best. Leaders need to be authentic, manage from their hearts, be consistent with their beliefs, emanate trust and transparency, and allow their followers to be free to create, share, and excel at what they do best.
Being REAL means taking the journey of personal transformation to become more aware and conscious and to move beyond the known to courageously move into the unknown.
REAL leaders push off the comfort zone rather than being defined by it.
Referencing research and 30 years’ worth of experience in leadership consulting and organizational and cultural transformation, Robertson shows why leaders fail, why fear prevents leaders from really fulfilling their potential, and how they can recover through techniques of self-awareness and self-management. She also illustrates the impact leadership has on high- versus low-performing cultures.
While there are many books
out there on how to manage
better, there are few, if any,
that talk about changing from
within. Robertson addresses
the transformative process
that helps leaders change their
self-image, reframe their minds,
awake spiritually, find inner truth
and honesty, and achieve a level
of transcendence–all critical
elements of leadership wisdom.
