All Leaders Face Adversity. Exceptional Leaders Thrive in It. Leadership is often a struggle, and yet strong taboos keep us from talking openly and honestly about our difficulties for fear of looking weak and seeming to lack confidence. But Steven Snyder shows that this discussion is vital--adversity is precisely what unlocks our greatest potential. Using real-life stories drawn from his extensive research studying 151 diverse episodes of leadership struggle--as well as from his experiences working with Bill Gates in the early years of Microsoft and as a CEO and executive coach--Snyder shows how to navigate intense challenges to achieve personal growth and organizational success. He details strategies for embracing struggle and offers a host of unique tools and hands-on practices to help you implement them. By mastering the art of struggle, you'll be better equipped to meet life's challenges and focus on what matters most."Leadership and the Art of Struggle provides you with the opportunity to learn from Snyder's remarkable wisdom. It is a living guide that you can return to time and time again as new situations arise."--The foreword by Bill George, former CEO, Medtronic; Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School; and author of the bestselling True North "The leadership book of the year ... one of the most intelligent, revealing, and practical books on the subject I have ever read. It confronts a vital truth: that challenge is the crucible for greatness and that these adversities introduce us to ourselves."--Jim Kouzes, coauthor of the bestselling The Leadership Challenge "Steven Snyder covers all the bases from channeling your energy to managing conflict, including a great segment about overcoming your leadership blind spots ... This encouraging book is a must-read!"--Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Great Leaders Grow "Leadership and the Art of the Struggle gives you clear and compelling advice on transforming pitfalls into possibilities."--Jodee Kozlak, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, Target.
