In Leading With Wisdom, Jann Freed takes the several years she spent interviewing more than 100 respected leaders, and distills their advice into eight practices that underpin leaders who connect and inspire others to achieve high performance. She takes the words of heavyweights such as Warren Bennis, Peter Senge, Stephen Covey, Marshall Goldsmith, Peter Block, and Margaret Wheatley, and presents their insights on what works and what doesn’t. Each chapter concludes with a practical application section that details ways to integrate the concepts into workshops and personal development.

  • Use the workshop and personal development suggestions to apply the eight practices into your daily life. 

  • Learn from the words and personal stories of highly respected leaders.

  • Integrate the best of yourself and your life into your daily tasks and roles.

This book is for anyone in a position of influence in an organization, or those who train these individuals. It’s also for those who feel they are drowning in information, but starving for wisdom about what behaviors nurture people, organizations, and communities at large. Discussing her research process with these experts, Jann says, "When I asked about leadership—they told me about life." This book helps leaders integrate the best of themselves and their lives into the tasks and roles of leaders.

Author Jann Freed talks to KCCI's Mollie Cooney about "Leading with Wisdom."
