<p>Data and information revolutions have led many business leaders to focus almost exclusively on the numbers, statistics, and spreadsheets collected and completed by their organizations. Unfortunately, this has been accompanied by a lack of attention to the human side of management, decreasing the ability of some leaders to motivate and inspire their teams. </p> <p>In <i>Leading Wisely: Becoming a Reflective Leader in Turbulent Times</i>, accomplished leadership expert, psychoanalyst, and executive coach Manfred Kets de Vries turns the tables on data-obsessed number crunchers and refocuses the attention of leaders to the areas that really matter: people and personalities. <p>You’ll learn how to lead with wisdom as the book walks you through the characteristics and traits that make for a superlative leader, including humility, judgment, empathy, compassion, and night vision. <p>The author includes anecdotes and tales from a variety of spiritual and cultural traditions that enrich and lend deep significance to the everyday choices we make as leaders and members of companies. He also explores how to deal with negative—but entirely natural—motivations, like envy and greed, and how to emphasize and apply the Golden Rule at work. <p>You’ll find opportunities to be truly courageous by consciously picking your battles and saving your energy for what truly matters while you develop your ability to listen actively and intently to your colleagues, friends, family, and followers. Finally, you’ll learn strategies for finding and developing happiness and fulfillment from your work and leadership. <p>Startingly insightful and entirely indispensable, <i>Leading Wisely: Becoming a Reflective Leader in Turbulent Times</i> delivers a human-centered and compelling discussion on what it means to understand and effectively lead other people through challenging situations.
