Presence-Based Leadership is founded on this liberating premise: leaders' most crucial and complex challenges, rather than being obstacles, are actually doorways for becoming precisely the leader that current conditions require.
Here is a rich field guide to the territory of complexity, and how leaders can navigate it with leading-edge approaches that generate clarity, resilience, and results that actually matter.
Silsbee's new book is his most expansive. A master of integration, he seamlessly weaves fields as disparate as complexity, leadership and adult development theory, mindfulness, and interpersonal neurobiology into a deeply human exploration of how leaders can bring the fullness of their humanity to the most intractable challenges they face. His immensely pragmatic approach grounds new perspectives with intimate real-world examples. He offers specific, field-tested experiments and practices that invite the reader into discovery and application.
This is a radically new and integrated approach to leadership, through which leaders can tap the creativity and resourcefulness of their internal complexity in order to meet a complex world. Through cultivating an embodied leadership presence, readers will become more dynamic shapers of the context in which they lead, and a creative force for what matters in a fractured and dynamic world.
Presence-Based Leadership is the third and final volume in Doug Silsbee's groundbreaking and influential trilogy on coaching and leadership.
