The basic concept of the book is that leadership is not about leaders or even leaders and followers, but about a much more dynamic and nuanced process. Invisible leadership exists in the space between leaders and followers, between artists and subjects, between purposes and people. We are accustomed to thinking of leadership in terms of celebrity leaders or gifted and charismatic individuals. This book views leadership-as-purpose, and a transforming idea as the most compelling motivator of successful efforts and enterprises. A brief discussion of how invisible leadership has impacted non-profits, businesses and social movements guides the reader toward an understanding of the antecedents and possibilities of this way of thinking about leadership.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"When you read a musical composition you see the formal notes but the power of the music comes from the space between them, from the invisible notes. Hickman and Sorenson, using this metaphor (and others) explore leadership inspired by a common purpose. Invisible Leadership is a composition filled with innovative concepts and practical examples grounded in established theory and their own research-A must-read for scholars and practitioners interested in the study and practice of leadership." -- Cynthia Cherrey
"Hickman and Sorenson's concept of `invisible leadership,' that is, a passionately held common purpose that inspires people to commit themselves to its accomplishment, is exactly what has been missing (maybe, just invisible) from the field of leadership. This brilliant insight extricates the study of leadership from the morass of focusing on narcissistic, power-driven individuals. Instead, "invisible leadership" rivets our attention on that ineffable phenomenon we often mistake for human leaders' individual qualities or accomplishments. Hickman and Sorenson have broken new ground! What a joy to read!" -- Jean Lipman-Blumen, PhD
"Understanding invisible leadership enables you to lead using the most effective form of power-intrinsic motivation of your people." -- Dr. Gert W. Meijer
"The Power of Invisible Leadership explores leadership in a way that will prove useful to all leaders and followers, of all ages and backgrounds. Everyone can benefit from [this] insightful book." -- Angela Nicole Scott
"...[The Power of Invisible Leadership] addresses a key component that every leader should consider. It draws effectively upon past work and provides a basic framework for understanding." -- Douglas Davenport
"The foundation of this text is grounded in traditional and contemporary leadership philosophies and practices, and emphasizes invisible leadership from a variety of perspectives." -- Bryan Patterson
