Leadership defined ….

Defining leadership is a challenging task. If you take a look at Wikipedia’s definition of leadership, you will see what I mean.
I found it more informative to look at Wikipedia’s definition of leadership studies  first and then move onto the section on leadership, where the inclusion of the various theories of leadership took me back in time. It was during my organizational behavior classes taken as part of my MBA at London Business School, that I first became interested in leadership. I recall that I decided to see if I could find a text that summarized the history of leadership and ended up buying a superb little black book on organizational behavior (the name of which I will find and include in a later blog).

In the meantime, I’d like to know if you have any favorite books on leadership or OB. My favorites on leadership include:
The Leadership Challenge, by Kouzes and Posner
Leadership from the inside out, by Kevin Cashman
Leadership and the New Science, by Margaret Wheatley

About Carole Brown, Learning Coach and Repatterning Practitioner

My early days as a biologist and my career as a leadership consultant and learning coach have largely influenced the work I do now. I am attracted to many different spheres of knowledge and wisdom, especially those that are on the cutting edge and relate to the processes underlying change. "Resonance Repatterning" is an energetic approach to transforming our patterns and moving beyond the blocks that keep us from reaching our highest self. It is a stunning process that gets right to the core and elegantly identifies what needs to be transformed. I first studied RR in 2000 before we had quantum physicists explaining the basis for energy work. Now we have the science, there's every reason to embrace this evolutionary approach to change and growth and use it to explore how to become your best self.
