Abstract:

Much of what passes for 'good leadership' today only appears effective because people are blindly following their leaders. But when organisations face tough challenges, leaders often offer false solutions and sidestep harsh realities, distracting people from the real work of progress. 'Real leadership' mobilises people to face reality and address the organisation or community's most pressing challenge - the primary threat or opportunity that must be confronted for success to unfold. Williams shows how real leaders help people shift their values, habits, practices and priorities to accommodate changing conditions and new demands.
