Clear Leadership by Gervase R. Bushe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What happened to that win-win partnership with your boss, colleague, or direct report that suddenly dissolved into mistrust and suspicion? Despite your best intentions, how did hidden agendas, unresolved conflicts, and miscommunications get in the way? Today's business environment demands managers with new interpersonal and leadership skills: an ability to get things done in the open, build real commitment to decisions, develop synergistic teams, openly discuss failures and successes, and learn from everyone's experience. Combating what the author calls 'interpersonal mush' - a prevailing disorder that stifles learning, hampers collaborative teamwork, and closes down honest communication, Clear Leadership details the skills that make partnership and leadership in groups possible: self-awareness, descriptiveness, curiosity, and appreciation. Using true-to-life stories, practical exercises, and sample dialogues, Bushe identifies the barriers to truth telling and shows how to overcome them; explains exactly what clear leadership is, why it's important, and how it looks and sounds; and shows how to become more skilled at turning interpersonal clarity into action. 'This book makes leadership accessible to all. It is also written with elegant simplicity. Buy it, read it, pass it around.' Peter Block, Partner at Designed Learning; author of Community, the Structure of Belonging
