Grounded Leadership – The Key to Success
How can leaders continue to contend with chronic speed and uncertainty, cynical employees and personal burnout? By getting grounded, says Bob Rosen. A new model built for today’s times, grounded leadership is designed to help individuals at every level take a more holistic, balanced approach to their leadership and life. Using storytelling and case studies from his interviews with more than 400 CEOs in 50 countries, Rosen focuses on the six personal dimensions that fuel – and refuel – the world’s top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational and spiritual roots, and helps leaders adopt the Grounded Leader model that improves individual and organization performance. The results are “healthy outcomes,” in the form of having a great market reputation, achieving outstanding shareholder value and profitable growth, becoming a renowned magnet for talent and producing a positive impact in society. “So much emphasis is placed on what leaders do, we can lose sight of who they are…” yet, it’s their inner identity and self-awareness that shapes every choice they make.
Grounded Leaders, Healthy Cultures
It doesn’t matter what size organization you’re working in or running – culture is critical to its success, and to that of everyone who works within it. A thriving corporate culture starts at the top, and is only as strong and healthy as its leader. Bob Rosen offers insights into what makes the best corporate cultures – and their CEOs – tick. He cites plentiful real-world examples from more than 400 executive interviews, and points to six distinct dimensions of cultural health: 1) speed and agility ; 2) confidence and resilience; 3) learning and adaptation; 4) authenticity and collaboration; 5) mastery and performance; 6) purpose and generosity. A trained clinical psychologist and a successful businessman, Rosen understands first-hand how important culture is to recruiting and retaining top talent, and to sustaining long-term profitability.
