I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Kevin Cashman through my good friend and author Larry Wilson. I purchased Kevin’s book some years ago, and it always resonated with my philosophy with relationship to leadership. In my interview with Kevin, we get to explore the whole-person approach to leadership.
Leaders from around the country are singing praises for Leadership from the Inside Out, because the book is a practical leadership guide that offers real tools for leadership transformation. “Leadership from the Inside Out”, is different from other leadership or business management books, because it’s more than a book! It takes readers on a reflective, interactive journey – a practical explorer’s guide focusing on mastery of life, rather than on mere mastery of circumstances or of managing people – to help readers advance from single-dimensional focus on results to multi-dimensional high performance. Expect to be transformed.
REDEFINING LEADERSHIP: The book advances a view of leadership that originates in the character of the person and radiates outward to enrich others. It goes beyond competency and skill-building to character and personal development. Penetrating the externally defined manifestations of leadership, it goes to the essence of leadership itself: authentic self-expression that creates value. It will literally turn your views of leadership inside-out.
INTERDISCIPLINARY: The book’s whole-person approach integrates seven interrelated pathways to leadership: Personal Mastery, Purpose Mastery, Change Mastery, Interpersonal Mastery, Being Mastery, Balance Mastery and Action Mastery. Through insightful stories, real-life examples and practical exercises, Leadership from the Inside Out helps you connect personal growth to leadership effectiveness.
I thoroughly enjoyed my interview with Kevin, and I learned what it takes to become a leader during these turbulent and consistently changing times. If you are in a position of leadership, I highly recommend Kevin’s original release or I would also consider the revised edition that will be released in September 2008 by Berrett-Koehler. You can visit Amazon now and pre-order the revised edition to be released soon.
Enjoy this engaging and insightful interview with a master in the art of leadership.
