Abstract:

[The author] looks at leadership as a kind of stewardship, stressing the importance of building relationships, initiating ideas, and creating a lasting value system within an organization. Rather than focusing on the "hows" of corporate life, he explains the "whys." He shows that the first responsibility of a leader is to define reality and the last is to say thank you. Along the way, the artful leader must: Stimulate effectiveness by enabling others to reach both their personal potential and their institutional potential; Take a role in developing, expressing, and defending civility and values; Nurture new leaders and ensure the continuation of the corporate culture.-http://www.booksinprint.com.
