Discover Your True North (2nd ed.) by Bill George (ebook)
Porras What makes a company truly exceptional? Bill George examines several approaches to quality leadership, including the accountability of developing following leaders. Bill George surveys the complexities of twenty-first century corporations and concludes there is a great need for authentic leaders who "lead with purpose, values, and integrity George makes his case for authentic leadership by first describing authentic leaders and how they develop.
He then examines how authentic leaders build authentic companies. Third, George outlines how authentic companies compete more effectively in the market. He then concludes the book by examining how authentic leaders look beyond the bottom line 7.
According to George, "leadership begins and ends with authenticity. It's being yourself; being the person you were created to be" He comments on the tendency in the literature on leadership to emphasize lists of characteristics of effective leaders to be emulated by students. The emphasis is on style, and aspiring leaders need only adopt these styles to be effective.
George, instead, encourages aspiring leaders to be authentic and develop as people who are authentic leaders.
What makes a leader authentic? First, the leader will have a genuine desire to serve and be guided by matters of the heart, by passion and compassion, as well as by qualities of the mind Second, the leader will be his or her own person, and not attempt to emulate all the characteristics or style of other leaders who are deemed successful Third, the leader will develop his or her own style of leading, one consistent with his or her personality or character Fourth, the leader will be in touch with his or her own weaknesses, and will be able to resist the tendency to cover up shortcomings and pretend to be something they are not in order to win the admiration of others George describes five dimensions of authentic leaders, or the qualities that true leaders must develop First, leaders must understand their purpose, which can lead to a driving passion 19, Second, leaders must practice solid values, which then define behavior, even in the crucible of difficult circumstances 20, Third, leaders must lead with heart, which allows the leader to have compassion, especially for employees 22, Fourth, leaders must stay connected through enduring relationships 23, Finally, leaders must demonstrate self-discipline because their lives are examined closely by those within and without a corporation 24, It could be argued the Bill George falls into the "servant-leadership" school of thought when he states that "authentic leaders genuinely desire to serve others" This echoes the thinking of Robert K.
Greenleaf, who is often considered to be the father of the modern servant-leadership movement, when he describes servant-leaders as those who act on their natural desire to serve.
A question often raised in discussions over Greenleaf's conception of leadership is whether or not a person does have a natural desire to serve, and if not, then from where does that desire come?
Christians believe that desire comes from the transforming presence of Jesus Christ in the life of the leader. Perhaps this reveals a bias in George's book. He claims that authentic leaders will have a genuine desire to serve others, but he does not state explicitly from where the leader receives that desire.
Does he believe, like Greenleaf, that the desire comes naturally? George writes of his faith and church participation and how that has helped shape him as a leader. One might say that George's authenticity is the result of the presence of Christ in his life.
How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People
If that is true, then can non-Christian leaders be authentic as George has defined and described it? Authentic Leadership is an important book because it provides a welcome and needed perspective that is likely to be widely read in secular leadership studies. George clearly and concisely spells out the lessons he has learned about authenticity and the difference it can make for the leader, his or her family, and the company as a whole, including customers, employees and shareholders.
He addresses the concerns of corporate America from a thoughtful, well-informed and seasoned perspective.
His examples are both personal and relevant. George writes specifically for corporate leaders, and the book is most appropriate for that setting. However, there are truths about authenticity that are important for leaders in all settings.
What, specifically, does Authentic Leadership have to say to those serving in ministerial leadership positions? George's five characteristics of authentic leadership are helpful for ministers. Pastors and churches sometimes borrow or copy styles and methods from successful models in the hopes that it will lead to success in their context.
George encourages leaders to know their purpose and be the people they were created to be. Concepts such as calling, mission, and purpose can help provide an anchor when pastors are tempted by self-esteem issues, especially if success in ministry is defined by large numbers of people participating in church activities instead of defining it biblically as obedience to the word of the Lord.
Jesus Christ provides the foundational values that drive all ministerial leadership, and Christ gave a model for how to lead with heart and humbly serve to meet the needs of others when he picked up a towel and basin to wash the feet of the disciples. Connected and enduring relationships are also important for ministerial leaders, as is the importance of maintaining self-discipline. It is a given that ministers and their families are under constant scrutiny, and the stakes are high in terms of influence and example.
Pastors should be diligent in having deep, accountable, and encouraging same gender friendships where they can be told the truth in love and own their weaknesses. Without owning their "shadow selves," leaders will be tempted to work for the approval of others. Dan Allender echoes George by encouraging leaders to be honest about their failures with those who follow them and confess to being the organization's chief sinner Dan B.
Waterbrook Press, , This raises a question: Pastors must be wise about whom they make a manager of their personal information, but the need for authentic, connected relationships remains.
Ministerial leaders and churches should work to create a culture in which ministers can find a safe place to be authentic without the fear of repercussions because of their weaknesses. Ministerial leaders may not find Authentic Leadership to be as relevant as other books written specifically for ministry situations, but George still has important words of wisdom related to being the person you were created to be, owning your weaknesses, establishing connected relationships, maintaining a healthy balance in every area of life, and on the role of innovators in an organization and the importance of governance.
These are issues that all leaders face, regardless of the context.
Authentic Leadership and Followership
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is an excellent book that challenges each of us as leaders to reflect deeply on our own purpose and intention and then as we discern it take responsibility to live into it.
His five core elements of authentic leadership each distinct yet unfolding together. His stories of his own journey and how authentic leadership shows up in others are very helpful. A classic, read it years ago but have lost my copy and now I find I want a hard copy in my library. This never gets old, still as relevant today as when it was first published in Bill George has an impeccable pedigree in management, however, there is a reserve and a distance to his writing that made me feel like this: Nice book for the bookshelf, a few pithy pieces but this is not a business book that made me rethink anything.
Very adequate theory on leadership, with lots of examples that prove that this is not just a theory, but something that has been used, and it worked. Fun to read. Highly recommended reading.
