Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Leadership that Matters is leadership that makes a real difference in both by affecting organizational productivity and performance and by making a positive difference in the lives of organization members. This form of leadership transforms organizations from “good” to “excellent” and transforms individuals from subordinate followers to self-directed leaders. Leadership That Matters explores how transformational leadership can be developed and practiced and provides practical advice for leaders who want to transform people and organizations.

Leadership That Matters examines transformational leadership-leadership that not only improves productivity and performance but also makes a positive difference in the lives of organization members. Traditional, “transactional” approaches to leadership involve a kind of contractual arrangement: the leader issues orders and subordinates are expected to carry them out to the best of their abilities. This is fine as far as it goes. Transformational leadership goes a step further. Transformational leaders achieve superior results because of their ability to transform people from dutiful followers into self-directed leaders who go beyond simply doing what is expected of them. Drawing on research that investigates leadership, culture, and performance in dozens of organizations, the Sashkins describe the specific behaviors and personal characteristics of transformational leaders, who make leadership matter. They show how these leaders construct empowering organizational cultures that nurture self-reliance and long-term thinking. The authors offer practical advice on how to become a transformational leader. They also elaborate the crucial differences between charismatic leadership-which involves dependence on the leader-and true transformational leadership.
