Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Leading for Canada; Leading for the World

Leadership matters. More than any other factor, it affects the success of an enterprise. But there is currently a concern in Canada and abroad about a growing leadership deficit, in all sectors of the economy. Organizations everywhere increasingly worry about the quality and quantity of leadership available to meet their current and future needs.

There are few “born leaders,” but an abundant supply of excellent leaders can be developed with the appropriate support systems, mentoring and focus on judgment and critical competencies. Made in Canada Leadership explores effective ways to prepare leaders, by drawing on the best practices of exceptional Canadian leaders and those responsible for developing them.

Featuring the voices of hundreds of participants, Made in Canada Leadership reveals the nation’s collective wisdom on the art and practice of leading. The authors interviewed 295 exceptional leaders from coast to coast, in business, the arts, the community, cooperatives, sports, and the public sector. In their own words, these accomplished leaders share what leadership means to them, what contributed to their own development, and recommendations to expand individual, organizational and national leadership capacity.

The book also features insights and best practices from experts involved in 66 leadership development programs across the country, in corporations, community organizations, consulting firms, cooperatives, sports organizations, universities, youth programs, and leadership institutes.

Made in Canada Leadership explores what is unique about the Canadian brand of leadership, why our leadership style is so appealing on the international scene, and how it broadens our influence.

By offering stories and words of wisdom from the exceptional leaders it features, Made in Canada Leadership will inspire individual Canadians to answer the call of leadership, and organizations to create the conditions for developing excellent leaders. Beyond inspiration, it also provides practical advice on how organizations can build their leadership capacity, and how we can enhance our leadership effectiveness as a nation.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Made in Canada Leadership

"As an energy delivery company that takes great pride in our commitment to sustainable development, Enbridge recognizes that the leading, sustainable corporations of tomorrow must create an internal culture where leadership is fostered and nurtured at all levels. Made in Canada Leadership provides the roadmap for corporations seeking to secure their long-term future as industry leaders through the development and empowerment of any great company’s strength—its people."
—Patrick D. Daniel, President & CEO, Enbridge Inc.

"Made in Canada Leadership makes a compelling case for a strategic and concerted approach to individual and collective leadership development to build our country’s leadership. If we want the right supply of leaders, we need to develop leadership in all sectors and at all levels. It is a long-term commitment and a collaborative endeavour. I am personally committed to rise to the challenge and engage in the leadership development movement and I hope others will join us in this quest for leadership."
—Denise Amyot, Vice-President, Leadership Network, Public Service Human Resources Management Agency of Canada

"Developing elite athletes who can win at the international level demands more than time, effort, resources, money and raw talent. It requires support systems that are effective and strategic and the mentoring of coaches who understand how to maximize not only the athletes’ physical potential but also their mental preparation. A similar case can be made for leader development. Made in Canada Leadership looks at what is needed to transform our leadership development efforts from amateur to major league. A must read!"
—Chris Rudge, CEO and Secretary General, Canadian Olympic Committee

"In our global world, human assets increasingly constitute the competitive advantage; and to succeed, quality leadership is required. However, leadership development is not a casual undertaking, but a long term investment and a shared responsibility. Nurturing future leaders offers significant ROI for all concerned: high returns for the organization and fulfilled leaders. Made in Canada Leadership provides an essential guide to the secrets of growing leaders from a strategic and Canadian perspective."
—Paul Juniper, Director, Industrial Relations Centre, Queen’s University

Format: Hardcover
There's something here for everyone interested in leadership, not just Canadians. As former Senior Vice President of Human Resources for a 70,000 person national retail chain and now a coach, consultant and speaker on leadership skills, I've read and surveyed a wide range of work in the area. Both reading the book and hearing the authors present, I am struck by how much territory they've covered in a very readable-sized work. Quite apart from the fact they begin with a very good summary of what leadership is, how it feels and how most people get there, they go on to identify what is truly unique about one particular leadership approach - the one most common among Canadian leaders - that distinguishes and gives us the identity we seem to have almost given up searching for. Others will benefit by looking at how they've analyzed this one brand and examining how their own may differ, whether it's stronger or could stand to borrow features.

If they are correct that Canadian leadership skills are appreciated, respected and admired by many around the world, as other nationals have told them, this makes clear why. Among Canadians it's almost a requirement to criticize ourselves. While that helps improve what we do, it also sometimes prevents us from seeing what we do balanced against strengths we see more of elsewhere. Leadership is the most complex and challenging human activity - and the most powerful force for change. Contrasting strengths and realizing that the overall best would be a collaborative approach, where no one person, nor one country, can claim to be the best alone, it's helpful to seek a complete understanding of what's needed for ultimate success internationally.
