Level Three Leadership The book posits the view that many leaders have learned to lead at Level One, focusing on behavior and often ignoring or undervaluing opportunities to influence people at Level Two, their thinking, and at Level Three, their values and basic assumptions about how the world operates. The goal of this book is to provide practical principles of leadership that get beneath the surface, that intend to influence the thinking and feeling of others rather than just their behavior. The book is not about summarizing all the leadership theories, rather about integrating theory and practice and creating a model and a set of related perspectives and concepts about how a person can become a better, ethical leader in their own lives, in their work group, and in their organizations. Highlights of this edition: New: Leadership is about managing energy, first in one's self and then in those around.
