The ability to lead in a competitive and complex global environment takes talent, and a defined set of skills. Yet, why is it that so many organizations fall short in meeting the expectations and needs of their employees?
This book accesses the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus, and relates it to leaders and leadership. Sisyphus was condemned to rolling a boulder up a mountain for eternity. The problem was that every time he managed to roll it to the top, it rolled back to the bottom. In leadership, and sometimes in life, people repeat their mistakes.
The challenge that we face in leadership, and perhaps in life is to avoid repeating those same mistakes. Readers will work to identify their 'boulders', and discover strategies to address those aspects in their life that inhibit, deny, stop, or stunt personal and professional growth. Light-hearted and honest, it provides a pathway for consideration by approaching leadership through a different lens, and to work toward becoming transformational through a holitstic approach to leading others through the gifts of humility, selflessness, and compassion.
Each chapter is assembled in the same way with definitions to anchor ideas, narratives, short vignettes, critical and courageous questions, and a quote to tie it all together. Conquering Sisyphus is about evolving - it is neither prescriptive, nor clinical in its intent.
