Leadership from the Inside Out is a prescient transformational leadership book built on timeless, enduring principles. The first edition, published almost twenty years ago, turned leadership development inside out. Kevin Cashman’s core premise, grow the whole person to grow the whole leader, was a radical departure from traditional leadership books—it was one of the first to connect personal development with leadership transformation.
Since then this transformational leadership book has sold more than 180,000 copies worldwide and has been adopted as a core text in over 150 academic and corporate universities. The new research in leadership, neuroscience, and psychology included in this edition more deeply validates its principles.
In this seminal work, Cashman offers stories, exercises, and practices to help readers develop eight mastery areas that foster heightened awareness, courage, character, authenticity, purpose, agility, service, and contribution. These so-called soft skills no longer can be dismissed as “nice-to-haves.” Research shows they are foundational for high performance and enduring value creation. The third edition features updated content throughout and two new chapters: “Story Mastery” and “Coaching Mastery.”
Leadership from the Inside Out serves as an integrated coaching experience that helps leaders understand how to harness their unique influence and elevate their impact as individuals, with teams, and in organizations. For everyone from CEOs to emerging leaders, this long-awaited third edition advances the art and science of leadership, which makes the book even more relevant today than when it was first published.
