Overview

In Leading People: Robert Rosen, who has spent the last fifteen years working with America's leaders and our largest corporations, presents a blueprint for the kind of leadership that results in healthy, profitable organizations. 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.

This revolutionary and practical approach to leadership--soon to be a PBS special--presents eight principles of leadership--vision, trust, participation, learning, diversity, creativity, integrity, and community--along with the stories of 36 extraordinary leaders.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Caring, empowerment and social responsibility are words often used in this inspiring and informally written treatise for leaders. The traditional hierarchical structure of corporate management can no longer contain the spin of high-tech transformation with its frequent job and profit losses. The result is that a new manner of leadership is looking inward now, tapping the wisdom of employees, whose hands-on experience is found to hold the key to a better work environment with fewer layoffs and higher profits. Rosen (The Healthy Company), a consultant and researcher, lays out eight principles of good leadership-wisdom, trust, participation, learning, diversity, creativity, integrity and community-and analyzes 36 leaders said to exemplify them. They range in character and occupation from James De Preist, music director of the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, to James Rouse, developer of malls and neighborhoods. The book is filled with bits of advice, such as Rouse's admonition ``When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.'' Brown is coauthor, with Don Underwood, of Grow Rich Slowly. (Mar.) FYI: Leading People will be the basis of a PBS special of the same name airing in April.
Mary Whaley
With 10 years of research in leadership and funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to form a not-for-profit think tank called Healthy Companies Institute, Rosen uses his extensive resources to present an absorbing picture of leadership at its best. He draws from case studies of leaders in business, government, and not-for-profit enterprises whose stories reflect what Rosen contends are at the core of a "healthy" organization: vision, trust, integrity, participation, learning, diversity, creativity, and community. He cites the true leader as one with a profound belief that profits follow principles and who, with an astute understanding of human nature, skillfully taps the best in people. We learn that leaders are not born, but are made through key moments in their lives when they learn trust, empathy, and candor. This is an excellent book for entrepreneurs who run their own operations, offering important advice for CEOs who strive to improve their leadership skills. It must be recognized, however, that although the ideal is presented with real leaders profiled, many organizations do not have a culture that values or rewards these skills.
