"The book shows how great leaders essentially act as "authentic chameleons": consistently displaying their true selves throughout the changes of contexts that require them to play a variety of roles. Authentic leaders also constantly nurture their relationship with followers by skillfully balancing the inherent tensions of the leadership role highlighting their strengths while revealing human weaknesses, maintaining their individuality while conforming enough to hold the organization together, and establishing intimacy with followers while keeping enough distance to command respect." "A counterpoint to the scores of leadership "recipe books," Why Should Anyone Be Led by You? will forever change how we view, develop, and practice the art of leadership wherever we live and work."--Jacket."
