A guide to leading with your best self, which in turn drives others to be their best.
NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED
Just as the Wright Brothers combined science and practice to finally realize the dream of flight, Ryan and Robert Quinn combine research and personal experience to demonstrate how to reach a psychological state that lifts us and those around us to greater heights of achievement, integrity, openness, and empathy. The updated edition of this award-winning book—honored by Utah State University’s Huntsman School of Business, Benedictine University, and the LeadershipNow web site—includes two new chapters, one describing a learning process and social media platform the Quinns created to help people experience lift and the other sharing new insights into tapping into human potential.
“While it is commonly thought that influence is some political force that we exert upon others to get our way, the Quinns show how truly effective leadership begins with a selfless and positive influence that radiates from our inner core—our best self.” —Thomas Glocer, founder and managing partner, Angelic Ventures, LP, and former CEO, Thomson Reuters“The psychological state required for “lift” encompasses the very essence of leadership in the public domain: a sense of being purpose centered, guided by values, caring for others, and focused on what can be done to improve programs, conditions, and services. Lift is all about making a difference—the spirit of public service in the twenty-first century.” —Mary Ellen Joyce, executive director, Brookings Executive Education
“Lift presents rigorous science in an accessible way and imparts practical wisdom that keeps the title’s promise: it will lift you and the people around you.” —R. Edward Freeman, Elis and Signe Olsson Professor of Business Administration, Darden School of Business, University of Virginia
