   schema:description "Every day, in every facet of our lives, opportunities to lead call out to us. At work and at home, in our local communities and in the global village, the chance to make a difference beckons. 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 combined teaching and consulting experience to show that it is possible to put oneself on the line, respond effectively to the risks, and live to celebrate the efforts. With examples including the presidents of countries and the presidents of organizations, everyday managers and prominent activists, politicians and parents, the authors illustrate proven strategies for surviving and thriving amidst the dangers of leading: "Getting on the balcony": stepping back to get perspective while remaining fiercely engaged; "Thinking politically": keeping the opposition close, but watching your allies, too; "Orchestrating the conflict": using stress productively to work the issues; "Giving the work back": putting the responsibility on those who need to make the change; "Holding steady": maintaining your focus while taking the heat. The authors also address often-neglected aspects of leadership, such as how to manage your personal vulnerabilities, and how to anchor yourself and sustain your spirit through tough times. Both uplifting and practical, this essential book enables each of us to lead courageously and confidently-without losing ourselves." ;
