Leadership, according to the authors, is about judgement and character, and can best be handled by integrated human beings. This book concentrates on four themes shared by leaders: 1) vision - leaders with intensity and commitment whose attention is focussing on the goal and the agenda express a magnetism which attracts followers; 2) communication - the tool for sharing meaning; 3) trust - whereby the leader's position offers security to followers; 4) deployment of self through positive self-regard. Leaders are shown as setting direction, managing change concurrently with the provision of high-quality service, and attracting new resources.
