A recent study showed that when doctors tell heart patients they will die if they don't change their habits, only one in seven will be able to follow through successfully. Desire and motivation aren't enough: even when it's literally a matter of life or death, the ability to change remains maddeningly elusive. Given that the status quo is so potent, how can we change ourselves and our organizations? In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey show how our individual beliefs--along with the collective mind-sets in our organizations--combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us. This persuasive and practical book, filled with hands-on diagnostics and compelling case studies, delivers the tools you need to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.

Great leaders know that prestigious appointments do not only entail advantages, but also major responsibilities. They are willing to set high standards: First and foremost for themselves and only thereafter expect others to follow them. They never rest on their laurels, but embrace life?long learning. They are thus inspirational roles models for others. They walk the talk and earn loyalty — do not just demand it. They have prepared themselves well without risking complacency or overplaying their strengths. They ensure that more than mere luck will allow them to succeed in a world full of ambiguity, change, dilemmas, and even trilemmas. Most importantly, they orient themselves to follow their moral compass. They also know that it has never been so easy to find inspiration, a reality check, and advice on the development of their situational solutions. This book aims at providing such easy access to crucial insights into sustaining success. International top management and leadership consultants, lifelong learning experts, experienced executive coaches, and leadership faculty from leading business schools share their insights to help leaders cope with today’s and tomorrow’s complexity.

Scores of books and articles have been written in the popular press and mainstream marketplace about leadership: who leaders are, what they do, and why they matter. Yet in academia, there is a dearth of rigorous research, journal articles, or doctoral programs focused on leadership as a discipline. Why do top business schools espouse mission statements that promise to "educate the leaders of the future"- yet fail to give leadership its intellectual due? The Handbook of Leadership Theory and Practice seeks to bridge this disconnect. Based on the Harvard Business School Centennial Colloquium "Leadership: Advancing an Intellectual Discipline" and edited by HBS professors Nitin Nohria and Rakesh Khurana, this volume brings together the most important scholars from fields as diverse as psychology, sociology, economics, and history to take stock of what we know about leadership and to set an agenda for future research. More than a means of getting ahead and gaining power, leadership must be understood as a serious professional and personal responsibility. Featuring the thinking of today's most renowned scholars, the Handbook of Leadership Theory and Practice will be a catalyst for elevating leadership to a higher intellectual plane - and help shape the research agenda for the next generation of leadership scholars.
