Inspiration for Aspiring Leaders; Fresh Insights for Leaders

Greetings,

I hope to convince my readers that they can be authentic and artful Leaders without having to be preoccupied with the latest lists of allegedly indispensable character traits, and the latest leadership fads.  In exploring the idea and the sources of Leadership, I by-pass not only the ubiquitous character-traits-list approach to Leadership, but also the convention of attempting to overwhelm readers with theories, principles, checklists, guidelines, strategies, anecdotes, core and adaptive skills, slogans, and so on and so forth.

My goal in writing Three Wellsprings of Leadership® was to persuade my readers that the Wellsprings of Character, Hope, and Imagination are the seminal sources of those aspects of Leadership that are relevant to the presenting opportunity or challenge.

I believe that Leaders are poets, not logicians. I want to convince my readers that authentic and artful Leaders lead from spontaneity and grace, inspired by the three Wellsprings.

I hope that my book will alter the way in which we think about the idea of Leadership and the sources of Leadership.  As an aside, I am gratified by the endorsements that I have received for Three Wellsprings of Leadership®.

    Three Wellsprings of Leadership: Sometimes we have to close our eyes to see more clearly and this recently published book by Mr. Jack Long is an examination of Leadership as an ART, in a clear simple thesis which focuses on the essence of Leadership authenticity. Coming from an Architectural training and entrepreneurial perspective, the Three Wellsprings of Character, Hope, and Imagination were crystallized for me by Mr. Long as the “big idea” for aspiring leaders, today. A Recommended Read! david//
