Read full description of the books:
You are only real if you can see yourself, see yourself clear and true to the mirror of your soul and smile upon the reflection.
The oft sited military model of the leader, the lone general commanding his troops, in anachronistic in a world where the ability to command and control is valued less than the ability to orchestrate, counsel, collaborate and inspire.
I see leadership as a way of thinking about the future - leadership is about hope and the audacity of hope --Blenda Wilson
Competence, ambition, and integrity must be in balance for leadership to constructive as an audacious force.
Leaders master and alter the context- the turbulent and ambiguous surroundings that seem to conspire against them and threaten to suffocate them. Managers surrender to the context, without challenging it.
Leaders have four traits: competency to do an excellent job; congruity have a high personal integrity; constancy people believe they are on their side in a battle; Caring- genuinely care about the success of their people.
Leaders with contextual intelligence seek to understand the impact of external events on their life choices and search for ethical solutions to guide others to learn to lead.
Set aside one hour each day to look at the big picture for your job role and the company. Look internally as well as externally with good books to find the best resources.

Read information about the authorWarren Gamaliel Bennis is an American scholar, organizational consultant and author, widely regarded as a pioneer of the contemporary field of Leadership Studies. Bennis is University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Business Administration and Founding Chairman of The Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California.
“His work at MIT in the 1960s on group behavior foreshadowed -- and helped bring about -- today's headlong plunge into less hierarchical, more democratic and adaptive institutions, private and public,” management expert Tom Peters wrote in 1993 in the foreword to Bennis’ An Invented Life: Reflections on Leadership and Change.
Management expert James O’Toole, in a 2005 issue of Compass, published by Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, claimed that Bennis developed “an interest in a then-nonexistent field that he would ultimately make his own -- leadership -- with the publication of his ‘Revisionist Theory of Leadership’ in Harvard Business Review in 1961.” O’Toole observed that Bennis challenged the prevailing wisdom by showing that humanistic, democratic-style leaders better suited to dealing with the complexity and change that characterize the leadership environment.
