Generative Leadership free pdf "Our schools need leadership that challenges the imaginations of our students and teachers. They need leadership that can uncover the liberating opportunities concealed within daunting challenges - this is the defining ability of American genius. This is the 'generative leadership' we come to understand so clearly in this powerful and concise volume." - From the Foreword by Senator John H. Glenn. "A new concept of leadership for 21st century needs!"This innovative resource defines generative leadership as an approach that taps into an organization's collective intelligence and energy to generate growth and effective solutions. Drawing on brain research as well as leadership studies from corporations, the authors provide powerful insights that illustrate how leaders can release and guide the initiative, talent, and creative resources within educational communities. The book also examines: educational communities as systems of interdependencies- generative environments in flexible, resilient companies and links to current leadership strategies- and tools and processes that can serve as catalysts for organizational development and personal leadership growth.
