Synopsis

Leadership in today's corporations is exercised not merely, or even primarily, by those at the very top of the organizational charts, but also by the many employees who find themselves in the middle of the corporation. These managers, directors, and vice presidents practice inner leadership in both senses of the term. They lead from within the organization, rather than from the top. They lead from within themselves, seeking to guide others by the light of their own core values and goals, which may be distinct from, if complementary to, the organization's goals. How they do so, and how they can be more effective inner leaders, is the focus of this book for current and aspiring leaders as well as their academic colleagues. Fairholm explains that there are four key characteristics that distinguish inner leaders from CEOs. First, inner leaders inhabit a unique corporate culture in which they relate not only to subordinates, but to peers and supervisors as well. Second, inner leaders' authority is often more a function of their personalities and personal charisma than it is of their official positions.

Third, inner leaders have the ability to create a subculture within the corporation that facilitates attainment of their personal and professional goals and is consistent with their personal values. Fourth, inner leaders use different technologies (techniques, methods, and approaches) in the pursuit of their objectives. Current and aspiring leaders as well as their academic colleagues will benefit from this work.
