The Power of Invisible Leadership
How a Compelling Common Purpose Inspires Exceptional Leadership



April 2013 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
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.
