The complexity of our world can paralyze even the most committed individuals in their efforts to bring about social change. But being an agent of change does not mean we have to start a revolution-it can be done in small ways, wherever and whenever. The Courage to Lead starts from the premise that, to transform society, we first need to transform ourselves. It provides a matrix for examining one's relationship to life, self, the world, and society in order to become effective leaders. Filled with amusing and moving anecdotes, this empowering work will appeal to all seeking a better understanding of social change pioneering.

display_description"Many people want to engage in social change, to be activists for a better world. But the complexity of our world can paralyze even the most committed individuals in their efforts to work for change. Furthermore, it is not always clear what exactly social change is, nor how to go about doing it effectively." "The Courage to Lead starts from the premise that, to transform society, we first need to transform ourselves. It presents twelve leadership stances any one of which, if adopted, will change your life. And its message is simple: if you relate authentically to life, to yourself, to the world, and to society, you can not only start the process of social change from where you are right now but you can be a leader, as well. The Courage To Lead spells out the practical implications of living those four relationships to the full. Grounded in nearly fifty years of the Institute of Cultural Affairs in-depth research and practical experience in over thirty nations, this book offers you the lived experience of leadership in many different situations: personal, family, work, organization, community. A welcome manual that describes the internal landscape and external style needed for people to seriously engage in social change. The Courage to Lead uses a large canvas to paint a picture of leadership that is practical and deep. Illustrated by a multitude of engaging activist stories from around the world, it is readily accessible to a wide range of readers. Book jacket."--Jacket.
