The challenges faced by organizations today are increasingly complex, volatile, and multidimensional. To many, they seem insurmountable. And they may well be if only traditional leadership, management, and technical competencies are used to confront them. In this book, the authors make the case that most leaders do not use all of the competencies at their disposal

Let the Center for Creative Leadership show you how you can dramatically improve your leadership abilities in today's business environment. Based on years of specialized research, The Leader's Edge outlines six distinct creative leadership skills that, while not traditionally associated with management development, have, nevertheless, proven to be essential to modern business leadership. Here, the book's authors deliver compelling lessons in paying attention, personalizing, imaging, serious play, collaborative inquiry, and crafting -- all competencies that modern leaders should master. They also outline activities for real-world implementation, provide case examples, and suggest ways to avoid common mistakes. A wealth of self-reflections and tools helps ensure your rapid progress.

Great read.
  • Kadar
one of the best leadership books i have ever read. Palus and Horth really nail it. It is an academic read so put your cap and gown on but when you finish it you will be glad you did.

Great book, very insightful

The "Leaders Edge" is a unique book telling the story of the
development of a "leading creatively" program and some of the
major outcomes and findings. I was privileged to experience
part of that process and it literally changed my life.
The process and this book have you sampling the creative parts
of yourself, and believe me, you do have them. Prepare to
come away quite amazed.
It is not only what you've tried but what you've discovered
about yourself and how you might now be thinking a little bit
more creatively and approaching problems with more of a whole
brain bent instead of the more often left brain mode so
prevalent in business these days. Quite useful concepts and
tools are presented in this book to help facilitate that
process.
The creative journey depicted is interesting and practical.
The book is most representative of the main thrusts of the
course, still available at the Center for Creative Leadership.
All you need do is take the stuff from the book, suspend your
disbelief for a week, and add a whole lot of fun. Highly
recommended for those looking to widely broaden horizons and
creative solution seeking.

I've used the Center for Creative Leadership to provide leadership training, executive coaching, and career development programs for myself, for senior managers on my team and for many executives that I have supported around world. So when CCL's 40 years of experience are channeled into a how-to book on not just creative leadership strategies but specific steps that result in improved work performance, it's on my bookshelf along a small library of other CCL books.

The Leader's Edge was published in 2002, and still possess all the relevance necessary for today's rapidly changing world. The book takes 7 years of research on effective leadership by it's authors, faculty at CCL, and organizes it into 6 competencies that must be added to the skill-set of any traditional leadership model:

paying attention
personalizing
imaging
serious play
collaborative inquiry
crafting

Filled with practical tips and relevant examples, The Leader's Edge is a how-to book for managers to self-evaluate their own skill-set, and a guidebook of real-world steps to implement the 6 competencies.

As a leadership development consultant, I found this book a refreshing break from current best sellers that emphasize and glorify the characteristics of individual leaders--I read it cover to cover, word for word. Using long term research and case studies as support, Palus and Horth describe 6 competencies needed to go beyond traditional leadership as we typically know it in order to handle today's complex challenges. The 6 competencies are quite different from those we are familiar with, even opposite of what we often hear: paying attention, personalizing, imaging, serious play, co-inquiry, and crafting. Recognizing that much leadership of complex challenges occurs in a variety of ways-within individuals, between individuals, and within groups, when Palus and Horth give advice on developing the competencies, they discuss developing your own, other people's, and what these competencies look like at the group level. They include two more neat ideas that fit in well with the point they are trying to get across in the book. If you are skeptical about any of the competencies, they invite you to experiment and expand. Second, they include discussions regarding when these competencies are important and when they are not--recognizing that not all situations call for these competencies. I can't wait to incorporate these ideas into my own leadership and into my development of others.

I am an organization development consultant who specializes in innovation and have been using the practical tools that Palus and Horth highlight succinctly in this book with clients such as Exxon/Mobil, Los Alamos National Laboratory and others. Without exception, leaders in these organizations have found the tools insightful and enlightening when applied to unique, complex challenges.
Based on long years of research from the Center of Creative Leadership, the authors have truly put their learnings into a book that is refreshing and easy to read. This is a must read for anyone who is looking for novel ways for groups and teams to interact-- by putting something different "in the middle"--in order to breakthrough (to understand this, you'll have to read the book!) Powerful favorites for me have been "visual connections" and new ways of looking at R&D scorecards.
Have fun with this book and most of all-- experiment!
It is refreshing to read a book on contemporary leadership which finally addresses the reality that leadership requires creative competencies. This books reminds us that effective leadership has more to do with asking the right questions, rather than having all the right answers.
Asking the right questions requires leaders to explore, develop and integrate creative competencies into their actions and behaviors. Complexity in business and our world today challenges traditional logic, analysis, judgement. A new edge and benchmark are required in order for us to develop effective leadership acumen and the Six Creative Competencies for Navigating Complex Challenges is an excellent platform for contemporary leadership.
The Leader's Edge reminds us that the best leaders are also artists and the best artists are also leaders.
Thank you for this inspirational contribution to the understanding, practive and development of whole person leadership!
