Practice Leader, The Center for Creative Leadership
Gervase Bushe is a wise teacher. First he takes us by the hand and patiently leads us deep into the mush that constitutes so much of the non-communication of organizational life; then, after we have recognized ourselves as the creators of that mush, he gives us the knowledge and practical tools we can use to break through the mush and create the clarity essential to effective leadership.
Barry Oshry, President
Power & Systems,
Author of Seeing Systems
Tired of the same old drivel on leadership? Read Bushe's Clear Leadership for a novel view. His fresh insights and numerous practical suggestions on how to apply his ideas will leave you impatient to go out and make things happen

From the Inside Flap
In this update, Bushe has added fresh research, dozens of current workplace examples, and new chapters that examine what it takes to create partnerships in which people feel equally responsible for the success of joint projects or processes. Included now aare twenty-three skill-building exercises, specific tools and techniques that bring clarity and contemporary applications to the original model, and personal stories of how individuals at all levels of the organization have put the principles and practices of clear leadership into action and achieved outstanding results. Highlighting the latest research and practical experience in the field, Bushe provides new thinking on learning conversations, creating cultures of clarity, and the concepts of "parking reactions" and confronting as inquiry. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This book really helped clarify everything I'd been learning about myself and others. I'd been introduced to the idea of relational 'boundaries' in other books before, but without the emotional intelligence to inform your decisions, boundaries (or rules) are just not enough. This book is really foundational and kind of puts the rest of the books on boundaries to shame, even though it's not even advertised as a book on boundaries.
I am now so aware of when I am making up 'stories' about people to fill in the gaps of my understanding of them. Just the first 60 pages or so were all I needed to do a 180 at work and with some of my closest friends. I found I'd been mislabeling people for years!! I've been telling eveyone about this book it's so good!!
Highly practical, though not too academic, solidly researched this book is a pleasure to read.
Examples and case stories make this book an easy read.
To apply it, that's another story. unfortunately, it appears to be quite difficult to find a certified trainer for clear leadership. But that's not a problem of the book.
The exercises are also very useful.
I highly recommend this book.
