Overview

Leadership is an art, declares Linda Cureton in The Leadership Muse. It's difficult to define what makes a leader good, true and beautiful. But, just like great art, we know a great leader when we meet one. In her book, a rich chronicle of encounters with a host of great leaders, Mrs. Cureton teaches us how to recognize the extraordinary artistry of leadership (and the great leaders) in our lives, in our every day dealings, and in ourselves.

Translating ancient wisdom into 21st century insight, Mrs. Cureton invokes and introduces us to the Muse of Leadership, who moves through the inspired lives and actions of the best, and perhaps most unsuspecting, leaders. From Pythagoras to Star Trek, from Odysseus to her grandmother to the unassuming hummingbird to contemporary superheroes, from Mrs. Cureton illustrates the Muse's far-reaching existence and power. And in her accounts of how the Muse has appeared to her, Mrs. Cureton teaches us how to meet the Muse in our own journey and become leaders capable of heroic feats of wisdom, grace and courage.

Great to see someone writing about the real world of Leadership. Good examples and easy to read. I will take what I have learned from this book back to my office.

Combine an autobiography, with a lesson in Greek mythology and sharply written leadership insight makes THE LEADERSHIP MUSE a super read. Suggesting bureaucracy has its place but not at the risk of leaving space for the passionate leader this book is a great insight into years of leadership experience. Allowing for leaders to take risk, not punish all missteps, and allowing for well applied leadership Ms. Cureton as written an interesting story with clear and focused examples. This book is a great new tool in both the new and veteran leaders tool box. Be "crazy" and read this book.
