Eight Critical Leadership Skills Created Through Effective Diversity Partnerships: A Skills Building Field Guide

This field guide addresses the most timely and critical issues of leadership and workplace diversity with refreshing candor. Eight Critical Leadership Skills Created Through Effective Diversity Partnerships focuses on a specific aspect of diversity and the key issues of the players involved. All three books offer practical, solution-oriented steps to lead you through some of the trickiest territory of today's organizations: the very personal - and often very political - problems and questions of individual and group identity. Written in plain English, without corporate jargon or self-help double-speak, it provides a field-tested real-world approach to growing leadership capacity while navigating the dynamics of workplace interpersonal relationships.

The secret is out: While there's no shortage of business leadership programs to sign up for, they may not be the best places to build the complex skills you need to effectively lead in today's complex workplaces. This landmark field guide brings the most sought-after talents right to your doorstep. You'll learn how real leadership is best cultivated: by working with the diverse people around you. As you read and reflect on the thought-provoking questions and do the activities described, you'll boost your ability to lead - and improve your organization's business results.

We consider such defining questions as: What is courage? Where does it come from? And why do you need it at work? You'll find out how to escape the all-too-common trap of simplistic either/or thinking and embrace the normal paradoxes of every workplace so you can work with reality instead of against it. Using our roadmap for difficult conversations, you'll learn about the detours, dangers and delays you're likely to encounter so you can anticipate and overcome them. In the same vein, we show you how to stay on your intended path through periods of change by allowing for the inevitable turbulence, uncertainty and resistance. And, not least, we explore how you can develop a fuller and deeper kind of leadership by connecting your head and your heart.
