What we are reading...
Leadership and Self-Deception, Arbinger Institute (2002).
An exploration into the dynamics of distress, with excellent articulation of how our human need for justification can often undermine and override our effectiveness. We have used it as a book study prior to PCM, as it lays a solid foundation for conceptualizing the various dysfunctional themes that underlie the distress sequences of all six personality types.
Leading with Authenticity in Times of Transition, Center for Creative Leadership (2005).
Rather than the typical "10 characteristics of successful leaders" approach that is everywhere these days, this book suggests that authenticity and balance among competencies are the critical components of effective leadership during times of transition. The authors distinguish between change, which involves structural re-organization that is typical of most management cultures, and transition, the often neglected human/emotional process that underlies lasting and successful change efforts. Easy-to read graphics and tips guide the reader through the characteristics and consequences of "overdoing" and "underdoing" various essential leadership functions. For those seeking to use the CAP in coaching and leadership development applications, this book is a must-read.
