Yet often, we hesitate. For all its passion and promise, for all its excitement and rewards, leading is risky, dangerous work. Why? Because real leadership--the kind that surfaces conflict, challenges long-held beliefs, and demands new ways of doing things--causes pain. And when people feel threatened, they take aim at the person pushing for change. As a result, leaders often get hurt both personally and professionally. In this book, the authors combine a half century of teaching and consulting experience to show one can put oneself on the line, respond effectively to the risks, and live to celebrate the efforts. With examples including presidents of countries and of organizations, everyday managers and prominent activists, politicians and parents, the authors illustrate proven strategies for surviving and thriving amidst the dangers of leading.--From publisher description."@en
