Buy at Amazon Canada Synchronicity : The Inner Path of Leadership
"Synchronicity illustrates that leadership is about the release of human possibilities, about enabling others to break free of limits-created organizationally or self-imposed. Although this book describes the author's personal journey, it contains profound messages about organizational learning and effectiveness." This book was sparked by the discussions attorney Joe Jaworski had with his father, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski, about the lack of moral and ethical standards at high levels. The author maintains that true leadership creates a domain in which people become ever more capable and "predictable miracles" can happen.
