Balancing the Two Faces of Leadership

Bolman and Deal use the dual images of The Wizard and the Warrior to discuss what it takes to be a real leader. Great leaders must act both as Wizard, calling on imagination, creativity, meaning and magic, and as Warrior, mobilizing strength, courage and willingness to fight in order to fulfill their mission. Learn how to find the leader within yourself.

The MP3 recording and slides from this event as well as a book summary for The Wizard and the Warrior will be available to listen to or download from your Online Library immediately after check-out.
