Contents: Most successful leaders know that leadership is an art, not a science. They recognize that beyond all the sophisticated systems and theories, the strategies and tactics, leadership is ultimately about intangible things, such as timing, intuition, and passion. This book shows how successful leaders can master the artistic aspects of their work. It guides readers to the ways that the art of leadership can be practiced and learned. "The Dance of Leadership" explores the art of leadership by examining the perspectives, training, and insights of artists, most particularly in the fields of music and dance. The authors look at how these people learn their craft, practice their skills, and attain mastery of their art. Then, they adapt these lessons from the arts to the experiences of successful leaders in all fields. The book incorporates in-depth interviews with some of the world's premier artists and writers, as well as dozens of leaders in business, government, the military, and sports. The result is a book that celebrates the art of leadership - but an art that can be learned, developed, and practiced.
