Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
How Great Leaders Think: The Art of Reframing uses compelling, contemporary examples to show how better thinking is the key to better leadership. Leaders who can reframe capture a sharper image of what’s going on around them and understand what they need to do to achieve the results they want. Bolman and Deal’s influential four-frame model of leadership and organizations—developed in their bestselling book, Reframing Organizations: Artistry Choice, and Leadership—offers leaders an accessible template for understanding four major dimensions of organizational life: structure, people, politics, and culture. Tapping into the power of the imagery enables leaders to decode the messy world in which they live, see more options, tell better stories, and find more powerful leadership strategies. Case examples of leaders like Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Howard Schultz at Starbucks, Tony Hsieh of Zappos, Ursula Burns at Xerox, and the late Steve Jobs of Apple provide concrete lessons that readers can put to use in their own leadership. The book’s lessons include:
“Bolman and Deal’s The Wizard and the Warrior could be your secret weapon. Read. Learn. Then lead with confidence.”
—THOMAS KELLER, chef and owner, The French Laundry; author of Ad Hoc at Home and Bouchon Bakery
“The ‘gold standard’ for looking at leadership. The Wizard and the Warrior is about fighting the good fight, but not losing sight of the magic—it is about making the word flesh. This is a must-read for anyone who cares about becoming a better leader.”
—PAUL D. HOUSTON, former executive director, American Association of School Administrators
