Leadership And The Art Of Struggle

Steven Snyder



The image that effective leaders guide their organizations on perpetually smooth journeys quite simply defies reality. Leadership is often a struggle and yet strong taboos keep us from talking openly and honestly about our struggles for fear of looking weak and seeming to lack confidence. Exceptional leaders embrace struggle as an opportunity for learning, as an art to be mastered. Leadership and the Art of Struggle paints a realistic portrait of how great leaders navigate intense challenges for personal growth and organizational success.

Through 150 stories of leadership struggle drawn from nearly one hundred interviews, as well as from his experiences as an junior executive at Microsoft, a CEO of a public company and an executive coach, Steven Snyder derives mastery strategies for welcoming struggle as an integral part of your leadership journey. To help you implement each of these strategies, he offers a host of unique tools and specific, hands on practices. You'll learn how to cultivate the best mindset for confronting challenges, explore multiple tactics to deal with struggle and keep your energy high so you can continue to learn and grow.
