The Wizard and the Warrior : Leading with Passion and Power
Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Bestselling authors explain the two key ingredients to great leadership Most leaders feel that if they have the right job, the right idea, and treat the people right, it should all work well. But in so doing, they ignore the greatest challenge of leadership: the tension between passion (the wizard) and politics (the warrior). While most leadership books focus either on being a passionate, symbolic leader or on being a shrewd, political leader, few books combine both images with advice on how to achieve strength in both areas. The Wizard and the Warrior opens leaders eyes and gives them the courage to take risks on behalf of the values they cherish and people they lead. Bestselling authors Bolman and Deal present the defining moments and experiences of other leaders who wrestle with power and politics, including Carly Fiorina, Lou Gerstner, Thomas Keller (head chef of French Laundry), David Neeleman (CEO of Jet Blue), Mary Kay Ash, Warren Buffet, Anne Mulcahy, George Marshall, and Abraham Lincoln for readers to emulate. These engaging, realistic case studies are followed by commentaries that will raise questions and suggest possibilities without rushing to resolution or simple answers.
