You Can Swiftly Master All the Basic Leadership Skillsets.
But What Leadership Development Tasks Come Next? And What After That?
They Become More Difficult to Identify as You Move Up.
This Book Reveals Each One and Gives You a Roadmap to Becoming an Extraordinary Leader.
This book is for:
• Aspiring Leaders
• Leadership Mentors and Trainers
• Leadership Seminar Facilitators Seeking an Agenda and Lesson Plans
Leadership Rites of Passage: The Journey of the Aspiring Leader and the Methods of the Mentor shows leaders how to master leadership skillsets from the basic to the ever-more sophisticated and shows mentors & trainers how to masterfully guide the leader to and through each successive challenge.
The long-term work of personal leadership development is organized into sixteen distinct Rites of Passage. It displays how the aspiring leader masters each developmental task, how the mentor guides him, and it offers seminar discussion questions.
These Rites of Passage are distinctly separated into four broad missions: Take the Lead, Create Followers, Become a Leader of Leaders, and Master the Psychology of Leadership.
This compelling fable follows an "everyman", Joe Miller, on his journey toward extraordinary leadership, from his earliest days through to his retirement speech. Early on, Joe finds a mentor, Sagen Cruz, who is masterfully probative and insightful as he draws Joe toward each leadership challenge. In sixteen short but useful chapters we listen in on sixteen mentoring sessions as readers passively gain the benefits of Sagen's careful guidance and witness Joe's work to influence people and build followers.
Very well organized and easy to read, it allows these leadership development tasks to emerge organically as the two men work together. Sagen tells Joe each Rite of Passage will continue calling to him until he masters it. Ignoring it will not make it go away.
Readers benefit from the way this book uncovers the increasingly more difficult-to-detect core issues at play after Joe masters the basic essential elements of leadership. With each leadership challenge, Sagen points Joe to a masterwork in the literature which Sagen briefly summarizes, asks Joe to read, and expects Joe to incorporate into his leadership. Readers can use this reference list to pursue their own subsequent leadership reading.
Each chapter is brief, impactful, and readily put into practice. At each chapter’s end, three brief summaries offer us Joe's work, Sagen's executive coaching process, and thought-provoking case study discussion questions. The text and case study questions are complete lesson plans for a leadership seminar or training sequence.
