I’ve just begun reading Christine Comaford’s book, Smart Tribes (Portfolio/Penguin, 2013). Here’s an excerpt from the first chapter. This is a timely book for me personally and professionally.
the “American workforce where 71% of workers are emotionally disengaged and simply working for the money, we know it’s essential to fix our state of so-called leadership…True leadership inspires people with vision. Vision pulls people not only to take action but also to care about the outcome, to take personal ownership of it, and to bring their ‘A game’ every day.
The team benefits tremendously too. As the leader grows in focus, team members feel the leader is increasingly more aware and cares about them more….As the leader’s influence grows, the team members feel the leader is more capable and collaborative. Over time as results are sustained, team members feel safer and more loyal.”
Sounds great, doesn’t it?! You can find this book on Amazon at this link.
