Leading People presents eight principles of leadership - vision, trust, participation, learning, diversity, creativity, integrity, and community. Rosen shares his insights as well as the lessons of thirty-six of the nation's outstanding leaders, among them: Alan Mulally, head of the Boeing 777 project; Barry Alvarez, head football coach at the University of Wisconsin; and Shirley DeLibero of the New Jersey Public Transit Authority. The visionary leaders are changing the landscape of business, and are demonstrating that healthy values, practices, and relationships produce superior results.
Leading people is hard work. It is full of tensions and trade-offs, celebrations and disappointments. As Rosen demonstrates through rich stories and insightful analysis, the most successful leaders have a profound understanding of themselves, of the motivations of people around them, and of the external challenges their enterprises face.
What America needs to thrive in the next century is not a new management practice or productivity program: what we need is new leadership. Leading People is a call for and a lesson in this new leadership.
