Clear Leadership: Sustaining Real Collaboration and Partnership at Work

Front Cover
Davies-Black Pub., 2009 - Business & Economics - 296 pages
Expanding on the fresh concepts that made the first edition of Clear Leadership such a success a decade ago, Bushe brings up-to-date the tools and techniques needed to build sustaining partnerships and make today's collaborative organizations work. This fully revised edition now includes 23 skill-building exercises, dozens of personal stories and examples, and completely new chapters that add a sharper focus on ways that the original model of the four selves the Aware, Curious, Appreciative, and Descriptive Self can help anyone cut through the miscommunication, misunderstanding, and toxic mush dominating the workplace to achieve clarity, full engagement, and sustained collaboration."
