Publisher's Summary

Top down, one-dimensional leadership models are hopelessly outmoded in today's rapidly-changing world. And they waste the leadership ability that is present throughout an organization, not just at the top.
In this visionary audiobook, Karen and Henry Kimsey-House provide a model that harnesses the possibility of many rather than relying on the power of one. They begin with a new definition of leadership itself: "Leaders are those who are responsible for their world." Which, of course, we all are, or should be - so everyone is a leader.
Co-Active Leadership is a deeply collaborative approach, but the first of its five dimensions focuses on the individual: leading from within. We must be fully present and live lives of integrity, openheartedness, and self-awareness if we are to make the kind of conscious, creative choices Co-Active Leadership demands.
Each of the remaining four dimensions work together holistically. Depending on the situation, you may lead from the front, offering guidance and inspiration; from behind, supporting and encouraging others; from beside, partnering with and supporting other members of your team; or from the field, drawing on insights and wisdom available beyond the rational mind.
Co-Active Leadership is the only model to celebrate and honor these different expressions of leadership. It invites all of us to share our expertise and allows collaborative solutions to emerge that would never have been possible otherwise.
