    Hesselbein on Leadership Frances HesselbeinJossey BassIn his Foreword to this book Jim Collins observes that Frances Hesselbein “grasped a central paradox of change the organizations that best adapt to a changing world first and foremost know what should begin italics not end italics change They have a foxed anchor of guiding principles around which they can easily change everything else They know the difference between what is truly sacred and what is not between what should not change and what should always be open for change between ‘what we stand for’ and ‘how we do things’Eually important she exercised the discipline to say no to opportunities that did not fit the central mission” This brief excerpt from an uncommonly insightful analysis of Hesselbein’s numerous and substantial contributions to knowledge leadership help to prepare the reader for the 19 essays that follow in which Hesselbein shares what she has learned about leadership that understands the importance of knowing that leaderships is much less about what one does and much about who one isThe essays originally appeared over a period of three years 1999 2002 After re reading them Hasselbein observes “I found that I believe even passionately in the whys of leadership the values the principles the beliefs that define who we are what we believe what we do and how we work with others our fellow travelers on a shared journey to leadership in an uncertain world” In this volume of all the challenges that CEOs face she identifies those that have little to do with managing the enterprise’s tangible assets important though as they obviously are and everything to do with monitoring the uality of leadership the work force and relationships
