Overview

The Three Faces of Leadership takes readers inside the minds of CEOs who were celebrated by the Harvard Business Review over the last decade of the twentieth century. Drawing on interviews with these famous CEOs Mary Jo Hatch, Monika Kostera, and Andrzej K. Kozminski demonstrate how business leaders today use aesthetics, specifically storytelling, dramatizing, and mythmaking, to lead their companies successfully. They look at how they inspire organizations through their creativity, virtue, and faith, and thus show the faces of the artist and priest alongside the technical and rational face of the manager.

Aesthetic leadership practices are linked to organizational culture, change, vision, values, and identity. This book encourages students and executives to align the creative and spiritual aspects of business with their technical training and practice.
