Leadership in Balance: New Habits of the Mind, by Dr. John Kucia and Dr. Linda Gravett
Leadership in Balance: New Habits of the Mind explores the notion that a Leader is a brand, one who embodies the brand promise and sets the tone for the organization. The authors have a strong belief that a leader and a brand are both built from the inside-out and this compelled them to dig deeper in uncharted leadership territory to discover and better understand the ways of thinking of a leader in balance. The authors develop the premise that the leadership required for a living organization in this 21st global society calls for new habits of the mind; a fundamental shift from emphasis on Leadership in Control to Leadership in Balance and from a Leader’s Ways of Behaving to a Leader’s Ways of Thinking.
