What is The Work of Leaders?

Comprehensively researched, thought-provoking, and eminently practical VAE: The Work of Leaders stimulates fresh conversations and new perspectives regardless of the leader's knowledge or experience. It's an opportunity for leaders at all levels of learning to reflect on how they approach each step of their work along a "leadership continua" and helps leaders take action with personalized tips and strategies that give clear direction and are easy to apply. Introductory chapters introduce the steps of the VAE process, defines, demystifies, and contextualizes each one.
