Leaders and Misleaders

By: Maruki Books  06-Dec-2011

Andre Van Heerden, 2011 ISBN:  978-0-9864598-5-6

Misleaders use people as means to their own ends; leaders respect people and build a better future for all.

There are more books, university courses, and corporate funds dedicated to leadership than ever, yet the alarming shortage of leaders in business, the community, and government is there for all to see. There are plenty of MIS-Leaders, driven by selfish personal agendas, but precious few leaders with the inspiration and integrity to make a positive difference in our troubled world.

This book argues that the obsession with skills-training produces masses of people with technical ability, but very little by way of creativity and character. Skills are valuable only if you have the will to use them wisely and ethically, to lead like you mean it. Skills-training cannot produce leaders, only on-going education can.

Andre van Heerden, who has worked with leaders in almost every category of business, uses compelling examples from history and corporate life to demonstrate how leaders are only developed by education, the continual nurturing of the intellect and the will. Everyone has intellect and will, and therefore the potential to lead, and using those faculties properly is leading like you mean it. But without on-going education, they are either corrupted or fade.

Before committing another cent to leadership development for your team, read this book and discover:

• What leading like you mean it really means

• Why misleaders are everywhere, but great leadership is hard to find

• The vital understanding of leadership that presidents, CEO’s, and managers are missing

• What we as a society can do to change the status quo in the coming decade.

A very important book.
