From Chapter 1, "Leaderful practice is unique compared to empowerment models that have become popular in recent years in that it does not merely present a consultative model wherin leaders in authority allow "followers" to participate in their leadership. Nor does it equate to stewardship appraoches that see the leader step aside to allow others to take over when necessary. Instead, it offers a true mutual model that transforms leadership from an individual property into a new paradigm that redefines leadership as a collective practice."
This book has the added advantage of including a brief self-assessment and then being structured such that you can easily find what you think will be of greatest value to you.
Raelin's Leaderful concept is an important lens to consider as we make decisions about our behavior and role as formal leaders and as individual contributors. Do we assess our behavior, at work and in our personal lives, as "leadership" only if we occupy a formal leadership position? Can't we all be leaders in our actions? Raelin impactfully challenges the reader's thinking about leadership with a new paradigm for leadership, positioned as a continuum: from conventional leadership approaches to four new Leaderful tenets. Raelin proceeds to expertly integrate historically rooted theories and practices with new ideas to move the reader along in their quest for applying the Leaderful concept in their work and personal settings. Self-assessments, examples, skills and checklists for getting started are thorough.
The argument for why people and organizations today need to consider Leaderful practices is presented in a genuine and authentic tone that warrants a close examination of values in the workplace while keeping in mind productivity and meaning. Important is the fact that this book is not simply espousing a new concept but truly integrates theory with practice. The reader is guided and supported throughout the book, including realistic scenarios, reflective questions, and whether an organization is ready and supportive for such actions.
