Hence, a new understanding of leadership is desperately needed as we head
towards this new age. Wisdom needs to guide the practices of today's leaders.
Our leaders can no longer depend largely on rationality in their decision-making
Author: Chris Branson
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This book provides a clear, comprehensive, and compelling description of the nature, characteristics, and prerequisites of wisdom-led leadership. It not only includes a detailed description of what is meant by wisdom-led leadership but also it describes how wisdom-led leadership can be developed based on current research data. In other words, practical ways to promote wisdom-led leadership are described. In addition, a metaphysical foundation in support of wisdom-led leadership is provided along with a detailed analysis of how this form of leadership can better prepare the leader to confidently and capably attend to their relational and organisational development demands, which are pivotal to their success. Finally, the fundamentally important and influential external issues of performance management, vision, goals, and accountability are discussed at length with respect to their potentially detrimental impact on the achievement of wisdom-led leadership. Embracing wisdom-led leadership does not mean that we have to forgo what performance management, vision, goals, and accountability procedures seek to achieve. It just means that these desired outcomes need to be achieved differently.

Andrew Mansell, perturbed by the suicide of a colleague, questions the nature of his marriage and its inevitable compromises. As the gulf widens between him and his wife, he takes what he sees as an irrevocable decision. He has reckoned, however, without the power of his family and friends to impose their will and the price he will pay. As their ranks close about him, Andrew must question the value of freedom.

Author: Yoram Cohen
Publisher: Society of Biblical Lit
This volume presents the original texts and annotated translations of a collection of Mesopotamian wisdom compositions and related texts of the Late Bronze Age (ca. 1500–1200 B.C.E.) found at the ancient Near Eastern sites of Hattuša, Emar, and Ugarit. These wisdom compositions constitute the missing link between the great Sumerian wisdom corpus and early Akkadian wisdom literature of the Old Babylonian period, on the one hand, and the wisdom compositions of the first millennium B.C.E., on the other. Included here are works such as the Ballad of Early Rulers, Hear the Advice, and The Date-Palm and the Tamarisk, as well as proverb collections from Ugarit and Hattuša. A detailed introduction provides an assessment of the place of wisdom literature in the ancient curriculum and library collections.
