This classic bestseller by Kevin Cashman pioneered a holistic approach to leadership development: grow the whole person to grow the whole leader. The third edition turns leadership development inside out for a new generation of authentic, purpose-inspired leaders.
In this seminal work, Cashman offers stories, exercises, and practices to help readers develop eight mastery areas that foster heightened awareness, courage, character, authenticity, purpose, agility, service, and contribution. These so-called soft skills no longer can be dismissed as “nice-to-haves.” Research shows they are foundational for high performance and enduring value creation. The third edition features updated content throughout and two new chapters: “Story Mastery” and “Coaching Mastery.”
Balancing timeless principles with emerging research, this new edition offers:
- Two new chapters: “Story Mastery” and “Coaching Mastery”
- New case studies, stories, and exercises in every chapter
- New validating research from the frontiers of leadership, neuroscience, psychology, and human potential
- An even more powerful and transformative development experience
Now framed in eight profound and pragmatic “mastery areas,” this book serves as an integrated growth experience that helps leaders understand how to harness their authentic, value-creating influence and elevate their impact. Cashman demonstrates that his trademark “grow the whole person to grow the whole leader” approach, focusing on purpose-driven leadership, is even more relevant in today’s hypercomplex world. For everyone from CEOs to emerging leaders, this new edition of a proven classic advances the art and science of leadership.
