From Speak the Truth and Point to Hope:
I am still fascinated by the power of organizational stories
to set courses and motivate organizations, but I have become more
and more clear that the stories we currently hold about leadership
are primarily stories of leadership without love — and they
are woefully inadequate to the job at hand. Leadership in every field
today must result in far better solutions than we currently have.
My goal is therefore to jump-start a new conversation about leadership.
I will have succeeded if this book annoys, provokes, inspires or delights
you, as long as you go out and talk to someone else about the ideas
you discover here.
As a leader, whether
in your own life of in an organization, what truths do you think
What hope do you point to?
To what would you
like to return to at the end of your current journey?
What is your big
hope for yourself and for this organization? What are the new
that will help us achieve this hope?
What can/do you
give back or return to others while you are on your journey?
What do you plan
to do when you sense you are at "The Return"?
