Leaders and aspiring leaders are constantly searching for role models who are successful in placing leadership theory into effective practice. This book identifies ten such role models whose heroic leadership behavior is analyzed in order to reveal what particular abilities and skills made them successful and how those attributes can be applied to one’s own leadership practice, whether that be as a classroom teacher, a principal or a superintendent of schools . They are juxtaposed with ten leaders who were effective, but certainly not heroic. Dr. Palestini points out that effective leaders have been utilizing the same leadership behavior for centuries. He uses this evidence to support the perennial and lasting impact of situational leadership theory which posits that no single way of leading works in all situations. Rather, appropriate leadership behavior depends on the circumstances at a given time. For decades effective managers have been diagnosing the situation, identifying the leadership style or behavior that will be most effective, and then determining whether they can implement the required style. The leadership behavior of ten heroic leaders ranging from Jane Addams to Warren Buffett, and from Abraham Lincoln to Joe Paterno is examined in this book. The lesson learned from these heroic leaders being that if one wishes to hone one’s current leadership skills or become a future leader, one can learn to do so by reflectively looking to those who have established themselves in history as both effective and heroic leaders, that is, leaders who lead with both mind and conscience.
As Liu (2013) rightly notes, the concept of 'leadership' is typically and
problematically reduced to the concept of 'leader(s)'. This reduction is driven by
factors such as 'the cult of personality' and mainstream media's focus on
individuals rather ...

At a point in an individual's journey as a pharmacist, one becomes aware of the immense gap between the potential and the actual performance of pharmacy as a health profession. For some pharmacists, this is a fleeting cognizance with a significance so troubling that it is denied and buried forever. Other common reactions include resignation, frustration, cynicism, and escape. The most constructive response is dedication to reform of the profession, in whatever sphere of influence a pharmacist has. A spirit of reform shaped the essays in this book, which were first published as editorials in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy(AJHP). The editorials selected for this book-half of them written in 1990s, the rest earlier-are still relevant to the state of pharmacy today. In some cases, the essays offer historical perspective on particular choices the profession has made, such as the adoption of Pharm.D. degree education as the minimum for all new practitioners. The hope is that this book will attract and arouse new readers-the practitioners, educators, residents, and students who have not been exposed to the pharmacy literature of the past twenty years-and incite them to make pharmacy a better profession.

An accessible guide to the principles and vision of Dag Hammarskjöld, a man John F. Kennedy called "the greatest statesman of our century." Dag Hammarskjöld served as Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1953 until his tragic Dag Hammarskjöld served as secretary-general of the United Nations from 1953 until his tragic death in a suspicious plane crash in 1961. During those years he saw the fledgling international organization through numerous crises with skill that made him a star on the international stage. As readers of his now-classic diary, Markings, are aware, Hammarskjöld understood political leadership as an honor calling for resourcefulness, humility, moral clarity, and spiritual reflection. In this accessible handbook, acclaimed biographer Roger Lipsey details the political and personal code by which Hammarskjöld lived and made critical decisions. What emerges is the portrait of a man who struck a remarkable balance between patience and action, empathy and reserve, policy and people. Structured through short sections on themes such as courage, facing facts, and negotiation, Politics and Conscience offers a vision of ethical leadership as relevant today as it was in Hammarskjöld’s time.

The definitive expert guide to ethical brand practice from the prestigious Medinge Group, Brands with a Conscience dissects the philosophy underpinning sustainable brands to arrive at a set of eight clear guiding attributes which can be used as the foundation of a strategy for responsible growth. These attributes span the public persona of an organization, the actions to take when things go wrong, the effort invested in developing relationships, the promotion of core values and balancing measures of success across economic, human, social and environmental factors. They are then used as the criteria to assess twelve carefully selected case studies, which include Ecover, H&M, TED, IWC and the John Lewis Partnership, amongst other leading international brands.Because the potential to have bad practice unmasked or to have successes amplified online is greater than ever, it pays to adopt a strategy that builds customer loyalty and trust. Brands with a Conscience inspires via examples of brands which not only exhibit a genuine desire to operate ethically, but also have seen impressive success in terms of engagement with consumers, reputation, and return on investment. The book includes a range of practical tools to bring together the main concepts in an easy-to-adopt framework for building a brand strategy based upon real world experience. If you are a brand manager or marketing professional seeking a conscientious approach to consumer engagement, then Brands with a Conscience will support you every step of the way.

Practical and theoretical perspectives integrated throughout the book help leaders consider the complexity of moral and ethical quandaries, rather than provide prescriptions or answers.

Many organizations have invested in the skills and structures of change, but have forgotten the more intangible quality of spirit. As a result, their changes have been short-lived, their adaptability slow, and their ability to move to the "next level" nonexistent. The absence of spirit (even with all the right skills and structures) has prevented these organizations from developing a self-motivated desire to change for the common good. Indeed, the absence of spirit has led to abject resistance to change.
