Leadership inspires and mobilizes others to undertake collective action in pursuit of the common good. Leading others to act for the common good makes democracy work the way our founders imagined and the way modern society demands. For over twenty years, the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs and the University of Minnesota Extension Service have provided forums of instruction for leaders in Minnesota, the U.S. and the globe. The Leadership for the Common Good CD Rom is a collection of tools for that instruction -- now available to classrooms, teachers, leaders and community organizations. The tools include: * Introductory materials that describe the leadership for the Common Good framework * Readings and exercises that focus the learner on eight essential elements for democratic leadership including leadership in context, personal leadership, team leadership, organizational leadership, visionary leadership, political leadership, ethical leadership and putting it all together * Power Point presentations and handout masters that help educators prepare for course and workshop instruction * Articles that frame the important work of leadership education, written by the founders of the Humphrey Institute's leadership programs.

In this revolutionary book Bill Grace presents an innovative leadership model designed to cultivate a world-view suited for today's interconnected global society. He offers a framework for people aspiring to live for the good of others because they know that is ultimately the only way to thrive. Through concrete exercises, this book helps readers to determine their deepest values, which Bill proves are the heart and soul of leadership. He then demonstrates how living by these ideals allows the advancement of the common good. Readers learn a practical model for integrating ethics into everyday life and how to make choices based on concern for all. Bill's ground-breaking approach emphasises attention to justice, care, and inclusiveness, and stresses the urgent need to adopt these practices immediately. The book presents seven principles at the core of this new leadership model. These include traditionally valued leadership traits, such as commitment and vision, and expand on them to include such important practices as seeking out the perspectives of the marginalised, welcoming unpopular points of view, and cultivating the leader's genuine expression and voice.

For the Common Good: Redefining Civic Leadership is about the ideas that drive the work of the Kansas Leadership Center. We share our belief that 'civic leadership' needs to become more purposeful, provocative and engaging in order to cope with today's civic challenges and to help transform the civic culture of our communities and regions. We use the reallife leadership dilemmas of five Kansans to bring these ideas to life.

Because of a management model emphasizing standardization and a one-size-fits-all approach, the previous good health of firms depended on economic performance and maximizing shareholder value. The enduring financial crisis and the ensuing leadership void have forced us all to reconsider the rules of the game and to take into account economic and social factors, in order to address the needs of an unpredictable world. In Uncertainty, Diversity and The Common Good, contributors from leading academic institutions around the World discuss different models of socially responsible global leadership. Their perspectives embrace philosophy; sociology; psychology; ecological and environmental economics; management; and entrepreneurship. Together they explore unpredictability and how being responsible for social as well as economic outcomes requires intelligences that enable managers to adapt and to develop a sustainable, lasting and consistent managerial approach. Working with local communities, integrating minorities, and redistributing wealth, they say, requires a new model of socially responsible leadership that brings together dimensions that are incompatible within existing paradigms. This book indicates what new paradigms might look like, with particular regard to the issue of diversity as an asset with which to confront uncertainty. Case studies tell of leaders working with diversity to create social change and new visions of leadership that are impacting social and cultural norms. This leads to discussion of the nature and diversity of leadership itself which will be helpful to academic researchers and higher level students, as well as policy makers and practitioners.
