Organizational Paradoxes takes the reader on a journey into the individual's personal 'underworld'. Its primary objective remains to help the reader understand the inner theatre of leaders and followers. It looks at the deep structure of the executive's world, and tries to extricate some of the wishes, fears and anxieties prevalent in the world of organizations. This is not, however, a 'quick-fix' solution for the executive keen to improve his working life. By urging the reader to practise the self-observation that leads to self-understanding, Kets de Vries reveals that this is an essential quality of leadership

In einer Zeit des Wandels und steigender Erwartungen wachst die Sorge tiber die intemationale Wettbewerbsfahigkeit und unsere Fahigkeit, der Herausforderung der Welt an unserer Spitze in Industrie und Manage ment zu begegnen. In solchen Zeiten scheinen Ftihrungskrafte sehr ge fragt zu sein; in solchen Zeiten machen die Ftihrungskrafte den Unter schied. Wir sollten nicht verges sen, daB es die Ftihrungspersonen sind, von denen man die Entwicklung neuer Visionen und die Entfesselung und Lenkung der ungenutzten Talente, die auf allen Ebenen einer Organi sation vorkommen, erwartet. Ftihrungskrafte sind diejenigen, die un sere Institutionen ftir die Herausforderungen von morgen vorbereiten mtissen.

Ais ein Student der Ftihrungslehre hatte ich das Gltick, in diesem Zeitabschnitt zu leben. Das Studium der Ftihrung war in meinem Fall keine losgeloste akademi sche Ubung. Ich hatte im Gegenteil die Gelegenheit, den Aufstieg und den Fall von Ftihrungspersonlichkeiten - untemehmerischen und politi schen - hautnah zu verfolgen. Ais ich als Student in Holland Platos Staat las, war ich besonders von dem Teil fasziniert, in dem er die Eigenschaften beschrieb, die flir einen Philosophenkonig und seine Ausbildung notwendig sind. Diejenigen, die vielleicht dachten, daB das Interesse an Ftihrung und Ftihrungstraining ein relativ modemes Phanomen ist, werden tiberrascht sein. Schon 386 v

The most intractable family business issues are not the business problems the organisation faces, but the emotional issues that compound them. Applying psychodynamic concepts will help to explain behaviour and will enable the family to prepare for life cycle transitions and other issues that may arise. Here is

Reflections on leadership and career development by Manfred F. R Kets de Vries( Book )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the books in this series Manfred Kets de Vries-failed engineer, entrepreneur manqué, reluctant economist, international management guru, psychoanalyst, wit, and outdoorsman-offers an overview of his work spanning four decades, a period in which he has established himself as the leading figure in the clinical study of organizational leadership. At a key point in his career, working as he puts it, 'in the twilight zone of economics, management, and psychoanalysis," he decided to strike out on a little-trodden path and "bring the person back into the organization." Now Kets de Vries occupies a unique position in the academic business world, putting leaders and companies of the couch and working at the often intimate interface where the inner theater of the individual meets the outer world of the organization. The second book in this series, Reflections on Leadership and career development, takes different perspectives on the intimate connection between the personality or "inner theater" of individuals and the organizational context in which they work-how different personality types, in positions of leadership or as members of management teams, affect the functioning and success of organizations. Kets de Vries looks at the way basic psychological processes operate on individual and corporate performance and analyzes them in the context of case studies of leaders and organizations. he examines narcissism, dysfunctional collusion between leaders and followers, some new leadership archetypes, and the roles that "organizational therapists" (coaches or consultants) can play in their interventions. The book includes a lengthy study of Vladimir Putin, as "CEO of Russia, Inc.," an assessment of the former Russian president's performance as an organizational leader. the final part of the book examines the career life cycle and how executives cope (or fail to cope) with rites de passage like succession and retirement. -- From the Inside Flap

The coaching kaleidoscope : insights from the inside by Manfred F. R Kets de Vries( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through sharing the research methodologies, and describing intervention and change techniques used in leadership development, this book, written by IGLC-INSEAD professors and leadership coaches, contributes to a better understanding of how organizations may go beyond coaching in order to create best places to work. This book deals with how coaching interventions can drive a journey of transformational change at individual, team, and organizational levels. As a result, coaching interventions serve to create more reflective people, who in turn, create better organizations. The group coaching methodology, used by the INSEAD Global Leadership Center (IGLC) and adopted by the Center for Leadership Development Research (CLDR) at the European School of Technology and Management (ESMT), Berlin, is the basis for developing the theoretical assumptions behind the chapters. Through sharing research methodologies, and describing intervention and change techniques used in the leadership development and education of executive coaches, the book sheds light on how the 'magic' of coaching works, what coaches actually do, and how their clients respond. This book is a joint project between the IGLC and the CLDR. In compiling it, we have involved academics who conduct research, teach, and consult; leadership development coaches; change consultants; and executives who adopted IGLC methods for reflection on leadership development opportunities and challenges. We have also included people who have experienced IGLC methods in the process of their developmental journeys. They have collaborated, consulted their research and practice notes, analyzed data from inquiry projects, and shared their personal experiences in individual essays
