Most executives lead with a purpose. Yet many lack self-knowledge, failing to recognize the limitations that accompany their strengths. They drive forward too boldly, unwittingly creating the potential for one slip or bump along the way to diminish their work and the respect of those they lead. That lack of self-knowledge may threaten a once-promising career.

Intentional leaders, however, learn to focus not only on what they plan to accomplish, but how they will lead others to get there. They examine their strengths and identify their weaknesses. In this process, they become the kind of leaders employees want to follow. First though, they need to understand how to reach that point.

In Intentional Leadership: 12 Lenses for Focusing Strengths, Managing Weaknesses, and Achieving Your Purpose, Jane A. G. Kise introduces the 12 Lenses for Leadership a framework developed from extensive research on personality type and emotional intelligence that offers a meta-analysis of the essential tasks and attitudes of successful leaders. Through these lenses, you will learn:

How personality type informs decision making
How to identify and then compare your strengths and values to good leadership practice
How to identify your potential weaknesses and blind spots
How to use your strengths and weaknesses to optimize your leadership style

With a provocative analysis and yet clear guidance,simple framework, Intentional Leadership helps you align your purpose and actions to achieve your true potential as a leader.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Intentional Leadership provides powerful insights about the need to become conscious not only of your own authentic leadership style, but also of the range of personality types that you might need to lead. It demonstrates in practical step-by-step guidelines how the self-knowledge resulting from a type assessment can enhance a leader's effectiveness in reaching organizational and personal goals. I recommend this resource to leaders at all levels in any organization, as well as to those who coach and mentor them."
