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.

Our registered Leadership in Balance process is based on 8 Ways of Thinking of successful leaders around the globe.  Through a 360 and self assessment, we identify individual strengths and challenges to leadership, then use this tool to develop a comprehensive coaching plan.  Leadership development using this process will help your leadership team to improve relationships; lead from where they are; know when to delegate and when to move forward on their own; and understand how to build consensus.

Tips for Working for a Younger Boss

In  her article, "7 Tips for Working for a Younger Boss" in the Money-Careers section of the March 1, 2010, issue of U.S. News & World Report writer Emily Brandon quotes Dr. Linda Gravett: "One of the problems that many boomers experience is that in their perception, the younger boss does not want to listen to their experiences and take account of their expertise.  The younger person has their own education and expertise and they don't want to be parented by someone."  (Read more)
