What really defines leadership? Our concepts of leadership are usually based on our unique personal experiences, and it is clear that a leadership style that works in one situation can be a recipe for disaster in another. In leadership, one size does not fit all. "e;The Five Commitments of a Leader"e; presents a new and revealing way to examine leadership through the commitments a leader makes (or fails to make). It explores the route to becoming a truly effective leader through five crucial commitments that must be made – to the self, people, the organization, the truth and to leadership. As author Mark Leheney explores what commitment in each of these five areas means, he challenges leaders to understand the difference between stated and actual commitments. Using self-assessment and practice tools, he encourages leaders to ask themselves accountability-creating questions along the way. An accompanying CD-ROM offers additional resources to print and use along with the tools, techniques and exercises provided in the book.
