Leading with Character and Competence Moving beyond Title, Position, and Authority “Leadership is an applied discipline, not a foamy concept to muse about,” says three-time CEO, Oxford-trained scholar, and consultant Timothy R. Clark. “In fact, it's the most important applied discipline in the world.” The success of any organization can be traced directly to leadership. And leadership can be learned. But too many books and development programs focus exclusively on skills. In reality, performance and ultimate credibility are based on a combination of character and competence. As Clark puts it, character is the core and competence the crust. He shows how greatness emerges from a powerful combination of the two, although in the end character is more important. A leader with character but no competence will be ineffective, while a leader with competence but no character is dangerous. Clark spotlights the four most important components of character and competence and offers a series of eloquent, inspiring, and actionable reflections on what's needed to build each one. Fundamentally, he sees leadership as influence—leaders influence people “to climb, stretch, and become.” You need character to influence positively and competence to influence effectively. This is a book for anyone, no matter where he or she is on the organization chart. Because today employees at all levels are being asked to step up, not only can everyone be a leader, everyone has to be. Clark's insights are profound, and his passion is infectious. “Leadership” he writes, “is the most engaging, inspiring, and deeply satisfying activity known to humankind. Through leadership we have the opportunity to progress, overcome adversity, change lives, and bless the race.”

How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power You’ve worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same—only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They’ve been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall. Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character. Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership: How Values, Morals, Ethics, and Principles Affect Leaders, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

In this exciting addition to the field of leadership development, author Barbara Curry charts a course for women as leaders on their own terms. Curry moves beyond traditional, formulaic conceptions to examine leadership as a fluid, adaptive process closely entwined with adult development. Drawing from philosophical, sociological, and physiological explorations of the leader persona, Curry approaches leadership as an interdisciplinary art. She casts aside mythical characterizations of leadership to illuminate a more holistic conceptual framework that fosters the development of authentic leadership. Using portraits of eight women in high-level leadership roles, Curry probes the kinds of conflict that often accompany women’s ascendancy to positions of power. Thoughtfully, Curry examines the constellation of character traits and environmental circumstances that enable individuals to perceive of themselves as leaders and to function productively in such roles. The book’s dynamic approach provides a bridge between explanation and proactive intervention, offering guidance for organizations and institutions aiming to encourage employees’ ascendancy to leadership positions. Through incisive analysis of the psychological and sociological evolution of women’s emergence in leadership roles, the Developing Leader Persona will enable both women and men to don the mantle of leadership with increased confidence.

In a model which combines wisdom and experience across ages and cultures, Formula V asks: How do we tap the ability that resides in each of us to lead with Vitality (exuberant mental vigor; capacity for a meaningful or purposeful existence)? How do we move from mimicry of others to transforming ourselves? It starts with changing our definition of leadership. We need to shift our distinctions and assessments from skills and competencies to qualities and character. We could all benefit from switching our focus from doing leadership to BEING a leader. Based on in-depth experience in coaching organizational leaders for 30 years across diverse industries, Kranzley guides the reader through a model based on five (or V) Qualities or Virtues: Courage, Humility, Honesty, Resonance, and Altruism. By honing one’s leadership character to incorporate these into authentic behavior, a leader can grow into leadership with lasting significance. Are these qualities learned or are they innate? Leadership is like poetry. You can improve language skills, build vocabulary, and learn about rhythm and rhyme. In that way one enables those inner poets to shine, ONLY IF there is a poet already inside. Formula V will help you assess your areas of need and of power. In our world today, we are challenged by an increasingly uncertain and rapidly evolving global economy where leadership is affected by not only the values of national cultures, but also the belief systems and paradigms of the world’s varying religious traditions. It becomes paramount for a leader in today’s world to understand how connecting with the core of one’s being (spirit) will equate to leading with vitality. Rick shares cross-cultural stories and fables to illustrate and entertain (The Cow and the Pig, The Three Blind Men, Arachne, Student of Athena); taps the insight and wisdom of some of the world’s sages (Aristotle, Lao-Tzu, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Ted Collins, Nelson Mandela); and shares thought-provoking examples of leaders who will remind readers of who we want to be, and who we don’t. Formula V will help unlock the leader who you want to be.
