Dr. Carol S. Pearson’s most recent book, “The Transforming Leader: New Approaches to Leadership for the Twenty-First Century,” has been named a finalist for the International Leadership Association’s 2014 Outstanding Leadership Book Award. The winner will be announced at an award presentation and reception at the 16th Annual ILA Global Conference this week at the Hilton Bay Front Hotel in San Diego, CA. The award ceremony, to be held Thursday, October 30th, at 7 p.m., is sponsored by the University of San Diego’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences.
“The Transforming Leader” was chosen by a prestigious committee of leadership scholars as one of only four finalists for the award. The other finalists are “Humble Inquiry: The Gentle Art of Asking Instead of Telling,” by Edgar H. Schein; “Advances in Global Leadership,” by William H. Mobley, Ming Li, and Ying Wang; and “Leadership by Resentment: From Ressentiment to Redemption,” by Ruth Capriles. Edgar Schein, William Mobley, Ruth Capriles, and Dr. Pearson each will make a presentation on their books during the award ceremony.
Also at the ILA Conference, Dr. Pearson will facilitate a discussion on “Work-Life Integration: You and Your Organization?” during the Women and Leadership Networking Luncheon on Saturday, Nov. 1st, from noon to 1:15 p.m.
