Lead Like Jesus Revisited
"The more I read the Bible, the more evident it becomes that everything I have ever taught or written about effective leadership over the past 25 years, Jesus did to perfection. He is simply the greatest leadership role model of all time." Effective leadership—whether on the job, in the community, at church, or in the home—starts on the inside. In this revised classic, renowned leadership expert Ken Blanchard guides you through the process of discovering how to lead like Jesus. Before you can hope to lead anyone else, you must know who you are. Every leader must answer two critical questions. One deals with your relationship to Christ. The other with your life purpose. Whose are you going to be? Who are you going to be? Learning to lead like Jesus can be described as the process of aligning two internal domains (the heart and the head) and two external domains (the hands and the habits). These four dimensions of leadership form the outline for this very practical and transformational book, from which you will learn how to: Integrate your faith with your role and responsibility as a leader Identify your priorities Build your relationship with God in a new and personal way Move from success to significance Lead out of service rather than self-interest Put the love of Jesus into action With simple yet profound principles from the life of Jesus, and dozens of stories and leadership examples from his own life, Ken Blanchard once again shows us the way effective leaders lead.

Collaboration Begins with You

release date: Oct 12, 2015
Collaboration Begins with You
Collaboration Begins with You Everyone knows collaboration creates high performing teams and organizations—and with today''s diverse, globalized workforce it''s absolutely crucial. Yet it often doesn''t happen because people and groups typically believe that the problem is always outside: the other team member, the other department, the other company. Bestselling author Ken Blanchard and his coauthors use Blanchard''s signature business parable style to show that, in fact, if collaboration is to succeed it must begin with you. This book teaches people at all levels—from new associates to top executives—that it''s up to each of us to help promote and preserve a winning culture of collaboration. The authors show that busting silos and bringing people together is an inside-out process that involves the heart (your character and intentions), the head (your beliefs and attitudes), and the hands (your actions and behaviors). Working with this three-part approach, Collaboration Begins with You helps readers develop a collaborative culture that uses differences to spur contribution and creativity; provides a safe and trusting environment; involves everyone in creating a clear sense of purpose, values, and goals; encourages people to share information; and turns everyone into an empowered self-leader. None of us is as smart as all of us. When people recognize their own erroneous beliefs regarding collaboration and work to change them, silos are broken down, failures are turned into successes, and breakthrough results are achieved at every level.

Following through on your efforts to get fit requires leadership—personal leadership. Early on, Ken realized the same concepts he’d been using for years to help people lead organizations also could help him stick to his program.

Leader, Know Thyself
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Leadership begins with self-knowledge. Leader, Know Thyself will help you understand who you are and who you can be–so you can bring all your power to bear in leading people through even the toughest challenges. Legendary business leaders and consultants Stedman Graham and Ken Blanchard explain how to hone and sustain your personal “Leadership ID”: the grounded sense of self and values that can guide you through life’s most critical choice-points. Graham and Blanchard help you gain a deeper understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, your purpose in life, your values, and your ideal future. They offer tips for resolving dynamic tensions between your most dearly held values…keeping the world from pushing you back into old and ineffective routines…accepting the right external influences and getting the right kinds of help…maintaining your focus on positive results...staying in the game despite any roadblocks you encounter…and getting yourself to the places and projects you’ve always dreamt about. You wouldn’t think of starting out on a major journey without taking along your identification. Yet, too often people set out to become leaders without knowing who they really are. We’ve all known people who were passionate to succeed at something, and then gave up their dreams at the first setback. Why does that happen? It happens because these people don’t have solid identities to sustain them when they run into resistance. They don’t have their leadership IDs.

Great Leaders Grow

release date: Feb 06, 2012
Great Leaders Grow
Successful leaders don''t rest on their laurels. Leadership must be a living process, not a title on a business card, and life means growth. As Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller write in the introduction, “the path to increased influence, impact, and leadership effectiveness is paved with personal growth.… Our capacity to grow determines our capacity to lead. It''s really that simple.” Great Leaders Grow shows leaders and aspiring leaders precisely which areas to focus on so they can remain effective throughout their lives. As the book opens, Debbie Brewster, an accomplished leader herself, becomes a mentor to Blake, her late mentor''s son, as he begins his career. Debbie tells Blake, “How well you and I serve will be determined by the decision to grow or not. Will you be a leader who is always ready to face the next challenge? Or will you be a leader who tries to apply yesterday''s solutions to today''s problems? The latter will ultimately fail. The difference: the decision to grow. And not a short-term decision but a decision to grow throughout your career and throughout your life. This single decision is a game changer for leaders.” Over the next several weeks Debbie reveals what this means in practical terms. She and Blake explore four ways that leaders must continue to grow, both on the job and off, because who you are as a leader is inextricably connected to who you are as a person. Whether you''re a CEO or an entry-level employee, you''ll be inspired to reflect on your own life and to design your own unique long-term growth plan, leading to not only continuing professional success but personal fulfillment as well.
