Leadership Alive: Changing Leadership Practices in the Emerging 21st Century Culture

Leadership Alive: The Big Idea:

We are now living in the most demanding and perplexing times that leaders have ever faced. Because contemporary culture is changing, new methodology and practices are needed to better inspire, educate and train new and emerging leaders of the 21st century. Many leaders need direction as to which core leadership competencies and qualities are central to their development and effectiveness in our changing postmodern world.

This book identifies the core competencies effective leaders employ and explores which of the competences are catalytic in the development and future training of a new kind of leader. This book is research-based and is founded upon interviews with 20 national leaders from diverse industry backgrounds.

Inside The Book Chapters:

Leadership Alive begins with a brief overview of leadership and the growing problem of leadership competency overload. After reviewing the history of leadership, and four major leadership models surrounding effective leadership practice, the book explores the changing 21st century culture and its spread throughout Western society.

Chapters 4-7 introduce the concept of the Holistic Leadership model: the head, hands, and heart of an effective 21st century leader and explores the specific head, hands, and heart competencies (“thinking,” “doing,” and “being”) next-gen leaders need to embody if they’re to be effective and relevant to those they lead.

The book concludes by unpacking the catalytic competencies that next-gen leaders employ and the emergence of a new ETHIC which is the impetus and guiding compass for the new breed of leader for a new kind of world.

One of the unique gifts that Chris has is the ability to “unpack” a truth, to get to its core, but more importantly, to discover how that truth applies to life, business, and leadership. As a result, I believe I lead with more compassion and the end-sum gain is truly transformational.  –Konrad Ziesing, Professor

Chris has a unique way of getting me to think deeply and then act on what I’ve learned. I have shared with others several of his patented leadership techniques, such as the “Head-Hands-Heart Model” and built many of his techniques into my leadership style. –Lynn Seibold, Director Shared Services

A holistic skill-set to be a more competent leader is needed in today’s dynamic, ever changing world.

As a result, I have become a more centered individual. –John Purtill, Process Manager
