The 5c Leader
Exceptional Leadership Practices for Extraordinary TimesPaperback Engels 2018 9781480865051
Some leaders make it look easy. Others who have every opportunity to lead effectively make it appear impossible. One thing is certain with leadership: People notice it when it is absent.
W. James Weese, a professor of leadership at one of Canada’s top universities, advances the concept of leadership in his exciting book.
In doing so, he argues that the best leaders exhibit 5C qualities: credibility, compelling vision, charismatic communicator, contagious enthusiasm, and culture builder. He explores how leaders can effectively:
- energize colleagues to solve problems;
- engage as a partner and a participant in the leadership process;
- develop a community of leaders committed to a clear vision;
- open the way to greater clarity, alignment, and effectiveness.
The author provides a thorough overview and theoretical grounding for each of his 5C’s in addition to exercises and a diagnostic tool so readers can assess their leadership strengths and areas for development.
Discover the foundational components you must cultivate to inspire others, overcome challenges, and achieve results with the lessons outlined in The Five C Leader.
