Sometimes "doing the right thing" while also delivering outstanding and lasting results can be difficult for leaders to achieve, but Harry Kraemer knows it can be done.
In this dynamic book for existing and aspiring leaders, From Values to Action: The Four Principles of Values-Based Leadership (Jossey-Bass, April 2010), Kraemer explains that in today’s economic and political environment values-based leaders are needed more than ever.
In From Values to Action, Kraemer argues that the journey to becoming a values-based leader starts with self-reflection, which he identifies as the first of four principles that guide leaders to make choices that are aligned with their values.
The four essential principles are
Self-Reflection: The ability to reflect and identify what you stand for, what your values are, and what matters most.
Balance: The ability to see situations from multiple perspectives, including differing viewpoints, to gain a holistic understanding.
True Self-Confidence: More than mastery of certain skills, true self-confidence enables you to accept yourself as you are, recognizing your strengths and your weaknesses, and focusing on continuous improvement.
Genuine Humility: The ability never to forget who you are, to appreciate the value of each person in the organization, and to treat everyone respectfully.
Drawing from first-hand experiences as the former chairman and CEO of Baxter International and from the popular classes he teaches at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Kraemer offers current and aspiring leaders a framework to adopt the four principles of values-based leadership to make their organizations beacons of enduring value in the world. Insightful and inspiring, From Values to Action comes at a critical time when true leadership in every facet of society is greatly needed.
