The old idea of leadership as having a position, that we are appointed, anointed or voted to, and the having power over people to make things happen.
In this book, I suggest the idea that inspired leadership is a moment by moment activity that we can all offer whether we have a position of leadership or not. It is about the incredible power that we can each can have with each other, not over each other. This happens most powerfully when we step out from behind our roles and share our humanness too. But most of know that we often hit significant internal resistance to authentically showing up.
The big idea of the book
The world is in need of new types of leadership, people who see their primary job is to inspire. Inspired leaders generously engage and serve, and aim to draw out the best in themselves and others.
