Overview

Is your leadership a competitive advantage, or is it costing you? How do you know? Are you developing your leadership effectiveness at the pace of change?

For most leaders today, complexity is outpacing their personal and collective development. Most leaders are in over their heads, whether they know it or not. The most successful organizations over time are the best led. While this has always been true, today escalating global complexity puts leadership effectiveness at a premium. Mastering Leadership involves developing the effectiveness of leaders—individually and collectively—and turning that leadership into a competitive advantage. This comprehensive roadmap for optimal leadership features:

  • Breakthrough research that connects increased leadership effectiveness with enhanced business performance
  • The first fully integrated Universal Model of Leadership—one that integrates the best theory and research in the fields of Leadership and Organizational Development over the last half century
  • A free, online self-assessment of your leadership, using the Leadership Circle Profile, visibly outlining how you are currently leading and how to develop even greater effectiveness
  • The five stages in the evolution of leadership—Egocentric, Reactive, Creative, Integral, and Unitive—along with the organizational structures and cultures that develop at each of these stages
  • Six leadership practices for evolving your leadership capability at a faster pace
  • A map of your optimal path to greater leadership effectiveness
  • Case stories that facilitate pragmatic application of this Leadership Development System to your particular situation

This timeless, authoritative text provides a systemic approach for developing your senior leaders and the leadership system of your organization. It does not recommend quick fixes, but argues that real development requires a strategic, long-term, and integrated approach in order to forge more effective leaders and enhanced business performance. Mastering Leadership offers a developmental pathway to bring forth the highest and best use of yourself, your life, and your leadership. By more meaningfully deploying all of who you are every day, individually and collectively, you will achieve a leadership legacy consistent with your highest aspirations.

A Leadership Bible Mastering Leadership makes the journey of conscious leadership transformation available to all individuals—from CEOs to managers to emerging entrepreneurs alike. For me, this book is a game-changer—it’s deep, thorough, and timeless. Through the Universal Model, integrated framework, case studies, The Leadership System and practices, and the Leadership Circle Profile self-assessment tool, Mastering Leadership empowers an awakening from the inside out and provides a path to leadership that engenders purpose, courage, compassion, action, and, ultimately, greater human and business performance. Bob Anderson and Bill Adams offer the promise of leadership—authored, transformed, and realized. Invest in your leadership. The return will be life-long.

Mastering Leadership is an important book in an ocean of leadership development literature. It ties together disparate theory work in a way that presents a coherent and actionable pathway forward, like few leadership books have. There are many theories on how to lead, with few offering the significant body of hard data that Anderson and Adams provide in this book. There is a saying in the business arena, that “If it is not measurable, it did not happen.” This book is a great balance between hard data and the art that leading is. It addresses the leadership soul in a data driven manner, while still finding time to incorporate poetry that resonates deeply within us. This book can help the 21st century leader develop themselves to meet the challenges that our world is presenting us. For leaders today, the name of the game is leading from a framework that can handle the complex nature of the challenges we face. The universal framework presented in this book weaves the best thinkers on leadership of our time into a model that can help transform the ways we lead. This book is a challenging read, and so it should be. As a practitioner of leadership development, I believe this book challenges the status quo in our field. It presents a provocative message, and developmental pathways for people to develop into leaders our world needs – a must read. Tim Edris
