The Six Roots of Healthy Leadership

Posted 11.01.2013

book-groundedIf you’re a leader who’s feeling continually pulled from pillar to post, you’ll want to check out the new book, Grounded: How Leaders Stay Rooted in an Uncertain World by Bob Rosen.

In a recent conversation with Bob, we talked about the research he’s done in more than 20 years as an organizational psychologist and advisor to senior executives.  Grounded is the summation of all he’s learned.

Bob has concluded that grounded leaders have deep roots in six important domains of health:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Intellectual
  • Social
  • Vocational
  • Spiritual

In the brief interview that accompanies this post, Bob and I talk more about those roots and how leaders can pursue three activities – self awareness, self development and self care – to strengthen them.

Listen in and share what you think in a comment. What do you do to stay grounded as a leader?
