E-book Explanation:

A good leader helps others move from where they are now to a better place. But what do leaders actually do to cause this to happen? Leading examines the practices of effective leaders. When they are at their best, effective leaders: 1. See the vision. Leaders challenge the status quo, taking risks to fulfill the high calling of God. 2. Share the vision. Leaders capture the hearts of their followers with a passionate vision for the glory of God. 3. Shift the vision. Leaders build teams that will act on the vision. 4. Show the vision. Leaders validate the integrity of the vision to their constituents by personally setting the example and by planning small wins to demonstrate that the vision will work. 5. Sustain the vision. Leaders strengthen the hearts of their people by keeping the people focused on the ultimate goal, by affirming them and their contributions and by celebrating their accomplishments. Leading contains extensive worksheets for personal reflection, as well as specific guidance to help you grow as a leader.

E-book Explanation:

What is leadership? Not only has that question been debated since the beginning of human culture and society, but it's a moving target based on the definer, and the epoch. The definition can be thought-provoking and profound: A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him, (Lao Tzu, 6th century BC ). Or the profundity may lie shrouded in the prosaic: A leader is one who has followers, (Peter Drucker, 20th century). However you define the concept, today's challenges for leaders of all stripes are monumental, and the need for effective leadership is huge. More than anything, this set travels farther and digs deeper than most leadership books. It takes us from mere explanations of leadership to an understanding of it as part of the human condition. Reading it should be at the top of the to-do list for any leader in any era. In Leadership at the Crossroads, contributors from a wide variety of fields, including management, economics, political science, philosophy, sociology, history, literature, and psychology, explore the many facets of leadership. The set comprises: Volume 1: Leadership and Psychology; Volume 2: Leadership and Politics; Volume 3: Leadership and the Humanities. Collectively, this set showcases traditional and emerging approaches to leadership in both theory and practice and raises new questions brought on by society's new challenges. It also suggests solutions for developing and promoting leadership in the corporate world, politics and diplomacy, religion, education, non-profits, and the arts. Whether identifying qualities that will serve a U.S. president well, or the characteristics of the essential can-do supervisor in today's corporation, Leadership at the Crossroads supplies insights and intelligence that will help leaders make the most of the challenges and opportunities lying before them.
