    Rosen Hit a Home Run!

    Excellent book! Mr. Rosen discusses 8 essential principles for leading people. Vision, trust, participation, learning, diversity, creativity, integrity, community. Rosen dissects each principle and uses a number of case studies to illustrate his points. He is obviously a student of timeless principles and truly realizes what makes for long-term success. This book will serve as one of my reference books in the pursuit of greater leadership knowledge and application. I rank this book just behind 'Built to Last.' Vision - This is about the whole picture and how leaders articulate the perspective for others. The message provides a common purpose that mobilizes people and coordinates their efforts. 1) Paint the whole picture 2) Create a common purpose 3) Engage in outcome thinking 4) Navigate the change process 5) Build a high performance culture Trust - 'Without trust, vision becomes an empty slogan. Trust binds people together, creating a strong, resilient organization. To build trust, leaders are predictable, and they share information and power. Their goal is a culture of candor.' 1) Share yourself and the business 2) Develop deep listening skills 3) Be predictable 4) Open all the doors Participation - Rosen says that this is the organizational energy. The leader¿s challenge is to unleash and focus the energy. 1) Unleash people¿s potential 2) Build partnerships 3) Nurture a team environment 4) Promote employee ownership 5)Create a winning attitude Learning - Leaders need to first understand themselves and, by example, encourage others to do the same. In turn, the organization will become a learning organization and will be more adaptable to change. 1) Nurture personal renewal 2) Identify strengths and short-comings 3) Master the mentoring process 4) Liberate the human spirit 5) Build a learning community Diversity - This principle is about differences of opinion that create a more complete collective paradigm. Mutual respect is essential for this trait to work. 1) Confront prejudice head-on 2) Cultivate your full range 3) Manage your differences 4) Create a culture of respect Creativity - Leaders must pay attention to the strengths and talents of their people and then focus these efforts for the greatest creativity. 1) Discover people¿s talents 2) Uncover your organization¿s creativity 3) Develop people-centered technologies 4) Reward soft innovations Integrity - Leaders must stand for something so for long-term success, it is critical to stand for deep-rooted principles of right and wrong. 1) Promote institutional fairness 2) Foster ethics and entrepreneurship 3) Have courage 4) Put integrity into every action Community - Service is a subset of this principle. Serving others, the organization, the community at large and so on, creates a higher level of cooperation and a higher level of successful output. 1) Cultivate maturity 2) Inspire pride and performance 3) Care beyond yourself 4) Be an environmental steward 5) Transform your organization
