leadership
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

A provocative, personal approach to leadership based on in-depth research with hundreds of executives around the world

Confronted by disruptive change and economic turbulence, many of today's leaders find themselves ill-equipped to manage the hazards they now face. They must contend with chronic uncertainty, cynical employees, and personal burnout. Most are poorly served by the prevailing paradigm that obsessively focuses on what we do to produce short-term results while sabotaging who we are as healthy human beings. Few have seen alternatives, until now.

Grounded proposes a new approach that's designed for actual humans who must grapple with these forces. This new paradigm speaks to our better selves. Based on the author's Healthy Leader model, it focuses on the six personal dimensions that fuel—and refuel—the world's top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health.

The book argues that leaders at every level can be more self-aware, develop their untapped potential, and drive significantly better results—for themselves, their teams, and their organizations.
  • Shows readers how to build a personal leadership model that works with their values, goals and capabilities
  • Features fresh stories from leaders in a variety of organizations including the New York Fire Department, PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Lego Group, and Medstar Health
  • Gives leaders practical tools to face their toughest challenges with greater skill, confidence, and impact
By developing themselves and mastering the six dimensions, readers can gain the stamina and strength to not only weather tough times but to achieve much, much more.

About the Author

Bob Rosen, trusted CEO advisor, organizational psychologist, and bestselling author-has long been on a mission to transform the world of business, one leader at a time. He founded Healthy Companies International over 20 years ago with the singular goal of helping top executives achieve their leadership potential. Shortly before launching the company, he was awarded a multi-year grant from the MacArthur Foundation for an in-depth study of leadership. Since then, Bob has personally interviewed over 350 CEOs--in 45 countries--in organizations as diverse as Ford, Motorola, Johnson & Johnson, Singapore Airlines, Brinks, Northrop Grumman, Toyota, Citigroup, PepsiCo, ING, and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He has become an advisor to many of these companies. Bob has distilled his most critical findings into the Healthy Leadership Model, which shows leaders at every level how to further develop six specific dimensions of themselves for greater impact. The Healthy Leader Model is also the basis for his firm's ongoing work. Clients include Global 2000 corporations, government and non-governmental organizations, and selected associations around the world. Bob graduated from the University of Virginia. He subsequently earned a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. Bob teaches in executive education programs, and has been a longtime faculty member in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University's School of Medicine.
