How to Be an Inclusive Leader: your role in creating cultures of belonging where everyone can thrive, 2nd edition
This compelling and inspiring call to action for leaders at every level helps them find their role and voice in affecting societal and workplace change. The need for inclusive leadership has never been more urgent. In the United States, the wealth gap is the greatest it has ever been, with women, people of color, and other marginalized communities being the most impacted by economic and societal inequities. In the workplace, representation is still sorely lacking across every industry. Pay disparities, low wages, and lack of benefits continue to characterize many jobs in the nation's labor force. These realities have an impact on generations, communities, and our society overall. To build a more equitable future, leaders must grasp the urgency of their role and responsibility in the change effort. In this updated and greatly expanded second edition of her bestselling book, Jennifer Brown takes a deeper dive into what it takes to be an inclusive leader and examines the challenges and mindsets that continue to hold many leaders back. Combining nearly two decades of professional DEI expertise with personal experience and reflection, she tackles complex topics such as identity, privilege, and systemic inequities. Following her widely acclaimed Inclusive Leader Continuum, Brown makes the journey to becoming an inclusive leader more informed and actionable by offering new structure and content throughout the new edition of the book, including new insights and stories, detailed strategies and tools, and discussion guides to spark learning at the individual and organizational levels. Whether you are already a fan of the first edition of How to Be an Inclusive Leader or are just embarking on your journey to become a more inclusive leader, this book will meet you where you are and equip you to take action and step into your role in the change effort.

Gentelligence: the revolutionary approach to leading an intergenerational workforce
"Vital for any organization with multigenerational staffs, and for marketers, public relations professionals, HRD managers, or executives." Library Journal, Starred Review Gentelligence: The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an Intergenerational Workforce presents a transformative way to end the generational wars once and for all. This book first introduces Gentelligence as a powerful business strategy and shows why it is critical for the future of work. It then presents a practical guide and a call to action for leaders of all ages to unlock the potential strengths of each generation. Readers will learn how an intergenerational workforce can be reframed as a profound business opportunity and discover how Gentelligence can help them win the talent war, create strong, diverse teams, and build adaptable cultures that will flourish in an era of rapid change. Gentelligence shares groundbreaking evidence that will have readers thinking about their generationally diverse workforce in an entirely different way. Readers will discover: -Where generational conflict originates, and how it results in both dangerous ageism and reverse ageism in today's workplaces. -Why the generation gap stems from a misunderstanding of shared core values across all generations. -How to find essential common ground with colleagues, both older and younger, and recognize the unique needs that come with different generational identities. -How generational shaming leads us to view those from other generations as competitors rather than collaborators, further damaging employee engagement, team dynamics, innovation, and organizational culture. -How leveraging the unique strengths of each generation at work can lead to a win-win outcome for all. -How traditional views on leadership have been turned upside down as a result of new generational dynamics, with many employees currently being led by managers that are younger than themselves, and older leaders struggling to make sense of changing norms around authority and power. Gentelligence reveals the opportunities within an intergenerational workforce and provides actionable tools to help leaders build Gentelligent organizations. Unlike other books on generational leadership, this book rejects common stereotypes assigned to different generations, replacing them with a deep understanding of why those who grew up in different times may behave in unique and valuable, ways. We challenge leaders to go beyond simply accepting generational differences to leverage them proactively to increase engagement, innovation, and organizational success.

Productive Tensions: how every leader can tackle innovation's toughest trade-offs
How leaders can recast innovation's toughest trade-offs--efficiency vs. flexibility, consistency vs. change, product vs purpose--as productive tensions. Why is leading innovation in today's dynamic business environment so distressingly hit-or-miss? More than 90 percent of high-potential ventures don't reach their projected targets. Surveys show that 80 percent of executives consider innovation crucial to their growth strategy, but only 6 percent are satisfied with their innovation performance. Should leaders aim for Steve Jobs-level genius, shower their projects with resources, or lean in to luck and embrace uncertainty? None of the above, say Christopher Bingham and Rory McDonald. Drawing on cutting-edge research and probing interviews with hundreds of leaders across three continents, in Productive Tensions Bingham and McDonald find that the most effective leaders and successful innovators embrace the tensions that arise from competing aims: efficiency or flexibility? consistency or change? product or purpose? Bingham and McDonald spotlight eight critical tensions that every innovator must master, and they spell out, with dozens of detailed examples of both success and failure, how to navigate them. How do you excite customers about a product they've never imagined? When is it wise to accept what the data is telling you, and when should you ignore the data and plow forward anyway? How can you maintain stakeholders' trust and support during radical unforeseen course corrections? Bingham and McDonald guide readers through innovation's thorniest tensions, using examples drawn from the experience of organizations as varied as P&G, Instagram, the US military, Honda, In-N-Out Burger, Slack, Under Armour, and the snowboarding company Burton.

Trust and Inspire: how truly great leaders unleash greatness in others
Wall Street Journal Bestseller From the bestselling author of The Speed of Trust, a revolutionary new way to lead, deemed "the defining leadership book in the 21st century" (Admiral William McRaven, author of Make Your Bed) that "every parent, teacher, and leader needs" (Esther Wojcicki, author of How to Raise Successful People). We have a leadership crisis today, where even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most organizations, teams, schools, and families today still operate from a model of "command and control," focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, this way of leading is drastically outdated. Stephen M.R. Covey has made it his life's work to understand trust in leadership and organizations. In his newest and most transformative book, Trust and Inspire, he offers a simple yet bold solution: to shift from this "command and control" model to a leadership style of "trust and inspire." People don't want to be managed; they want to be led. Trust and Inspire is a new way of leading that starts with the belief that people are creative, collaborative, and full of potential. People with this kind of leader are inspired to become the best version of themselves and to produce their best work. Trust and Inspire is the solution to the future of work: where a dispersed workforce will be the norm, necessitating trust and collaboration across time zones, cultures, personalities, generations, and technology. Trust and Inspire calls for a radical shift in the way we lead in the 21st century, and Covey shows us how.

Quiet Voice Fearless Leader: 10 principles for introverts to awaken the leader inside
"If I could give advice to any introvert who wants to grow as a leader, it would be to read this game-changing book" - Matthew Pollard, Bestselling author of The Introvert's Edge series.
Introverts are too quiet and too weak to lead. Have you ever thought this before?
What type of person comes to mind when you think of an introvert, and what type of person comes to mind when you think of a leader? The two words are rarely linked together. Society often labels people with introverted personalities as at least one of the following: quiet, shy, reserved, or timid. While at the same time leaders are described as dominant, passionate, outgoing, and ambitious.
But what if….society has it all wrong?
Quiet Voice Fearless Leader was written to challenge the misperception held by many, that introverts can not lead. Throughout this book not only will that myth be disproven, but in fact, the case is made that an introvert in many cases is the ideal leader. Within each chapter lies a core leadership principle along with multiple pillars, that when mastered will change your life forever. Topics covered include:
How introverts can add value to any room
How to grow confidence as a public speaker
How to effectively lead teams as an introvert
How introverts can establish presence at work and in business
How to make difficult decisions as a leader
and much more.
If you have ever doubted yourself, or ever thought that you had to be extroverted to be successful, then this book was made with you in mind. It’s time to awaken the leader inside because the truth is; your introversion is your superpower.

Maybe it's in your workplace, or in your relationships, or simply in your own life. But great leadership--leadership that aligns teams, inspires action, and achieves results--is hard. And what makes it hard isn't theoretical, it's practical. It's not about knowing what to say or do.

Intangibles: the unexpected traits of high-performance healthcare leaders
As a leader, is it possible to be both successful and humble? Studies show that today's emerging leaders not only prioritize achievement over humility but also see the two as mutually exclusive. Does this signal an existential crisis for healthcare an industry that, at its essence, is supposed to embody humility and compassion? Thankfully, no, according to Intangibles: The Unexpected Traits of High-Performing Healthcare Leaders, which demonstrates that you can embrace humility and still be excellent at your job. The author, a healthcare professor, executive coach and consultant, gleans evidence and insights from researchers, executives, philosophers, and thought leaders. Intangibles is neither a self-help book offering prescriptive answers nor a leadership-guru biopic looking back at a lifetime of lessons learned. Rather, it offers an engaging exploration of evidence-based practices from an array of leaders in different settings. The book's stories, interviews, and research findings will appeal to readers of every stripe and career stage, from undergraduate students in healthcare administration to early careerists and even seasoned CEOs. Part 1 introduces the four intangible leadership traits: humility, compassion, kindness, and generosity. Part 2 explores each trait in detail, and part 3 tackles the traits through the lenses of gender, age, and self-improvement. Along the way, the book explores many intriguing questions: Is humility viewed as weakness? Can leaders balance kindness with a strong personality? How do men and women differ in their perceptions of these traits? Are there generational differences in how leadership is perceived? Can these characteristics be learned? In the end, Intangibles concludes that high-performance in leadership can be achieved when humility is combined with ambition, and compassion with strength

Resilience in Healthcare Leadership: practical strategies and self-assessment tools for identifying strengths and weaknesses
The COVID-19 Pandemic has been an ultimate challenge for leadership resiliency. Resilient leaders are thoughtful and deliberate. They balance logic and emotion, ego and humility. They lead through compassionate empathy by focusing on the ‘how’, not only the ‘what’. They use their influence to drive positive change, diversity and inclusion, and create an equitable community.
Most books on resilient leadership appear to focus on spirituality and tools to grow an “unshakable core of calm, strength, and happiness” or “bounce back without getting stuck in the toxic emotions of guilt, false guilt, anger, and bitterness”. These books are very similar to handbooks focusing on mental toughness and providing guides for overcoming adversity and managing negative emotions.
This book, however, defines resilience as a critical competency of high-performing leaders. Leaders must cultivate resilience in themselves and foster it throughout their organizations and multidisciplinary teams in order to adapt and succeed.
Resilience in Healthcare Leadership is differentiated by offering practical strategies and self-assessment instruments for identifying strengths and weaknesses and for developing and sustaining the performance of resilient leaders. The book will also focus on best practices to help build a talent pipeline and develop resilient care team leaders to effectively manage the challenges of disruptive environments.
Whether senior or mid-level manager the reader will learn to apply knowledge and skills to initiate cultural change, assess strengths and weaknesses, align leadership roles with organizational goals, and position themselves to become a resilient leader. The reader will also learn how to identify message strategies consistent with stakeholders’ needs, resolve conflicts, lead multidisciplinary teams, and realize the impact of resilient leadership in influencing outcomes. Takeaways and tools are included to guide progressive learning and leadership development and build a strong succession pipeline, to help organizations become more prepared to respond to challenges facing healthcare leaders in the future.

The Nurse Leader Coach: become the boss no one wants to leave
What nurses expect from their leaders is changing. Gone are the days of command and control leadership when staff were expected to be grateful because they had a job. Today's nurses want their leaders to be coaches who will help them to learn and grow as professionals. The nurse leader has become the linchpin in staff recruitment and retention. When nurses don't receive the coaching and feedback that they desire, they will leave as evidenced by high nursing turnover in many healthcare organizations. Coaching is a different approach to developing the potential of your staff. When you coach, you provide staff with the opportunity to grow and gain expertise through more consistent feedback, counseling and mentoring. The relationship moves from being leader dominated to a partnership with staff. You don't wait until the annual review to discuss areas in need of improvement. The effective manager-coach takes the time to understand the motivations of individual staff, enables optimal performance, encourages professional success and removes barriers to high-level performance. If you perfect your skills as a coach, you can help staff to grow and put them on a path to success and greater ownership of their professional practice. It also makes performance management much easier because your staff will expect regular feedback. Moving from being a manager to a nurse leader coach requires a different leadership mindset and skillset to add to your leadership toolbox. The key characteristics of a coaching leadership approach include partnership and collaboration versus command and control. A coaching leadership approach involves less time talking and more time listening. Coaching for performance is an ongoing process that becomes easier over time if you commit to doing it. It will make you a better leader. Included in this book are new ideas, action steps and resources to help you do this. Research indicates that staff highly value managers who adopt a coaching style of managing performance. Yet for many leaders, this will change how they look at their leadership. Any new change in behavior can be challenging until it becomes routine. Give yourself a competitive edge by learning the secrets of how to become a great leader through coaching. Let this book be your roadmap on this journey. If you commit to becoming a nurse leader coach, you will become the boss that no one wants to leave.
