John William Gardner

Anul aparitiei: 1993
In this insightful classic, John Gardner unpacks what it means to be a leader, stressing the importance of dispersed leadership and a primary understanding of leadership as applied across all sectors of society. "A masterpiece."--Walter F. Ulmer, Jr., President and CEO, Center for Creative Leadership Leaders today are familiar with the demand that they come forward with a new vision. But it is not a matter of fabricating a new vision out of whole cloth. A vision relevant for us today will build on values deeply embedded in human history and in our own tradition. It is not as though we come to the task unready. Men and women from the beginning of history have groped and struggled for various pieces of the answer. The materials out of which we build the vision will be the moral strivings of the species, today and in the distant past. Most of the ingredients of a vision for this country have been with us for a long time. As the poet wrote, "The light we sought is shining still."

John W. Gardner, founder of Common Cause, has served his country in many roles ranging from that of Marine Corps officer to Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. He has been a professor, a foundation president, and in 1974 was awarded the presidential medal of freedom, the nation's highest civilian award. "The task of the moment," Mr. Gardner says," is to recreate a motivated society." How are we to combat widespread apathy? How are we to release the spirit and zest and enthusiasm that drives civilizations forward? Now, after a dozen years wholly devoted to action and conflict in public life, Mr. Gardner steps back and looks at the beliefs and values that must underlie human striving. He says of this book, "It's about the attitudes and values at the core of your being." He confronts hard questions and offers powerful, thought-provoking answers.
In Excellence, Mr. Gardner discusses the strengths and failings of our educational system, our confusion over the idea of equality, and the nature of leadership in a free society.
