I just started reading Immunity to Change by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey. I hadn’t even made it out of the preface when I came across this gem:
Innovative leaders share a trio of fundamental traits:
- A deep and abiding recognition that their people bring their humanity to work with them every day.
- An understanding that the absolute division between the work realm and the personal realm is naive and unhelpful.
- A belief that twenty-first century leaders must find a more effective way to engage the emotional lives of their organizations and their leadership teams.
