These perplexing, recurring issues are familiar to anyone in a leadership role today, including:    How do I balance my functional or business unit goals with the needs of my peers and the whole company?   How do I support and promote others while still advancing my own career? How do I emphasize teamwork and still reward the stars?  Can I really devote enough time and energy to both family and work?     These are not problems but paradoxessituations in which there will never be a single correct solutionand while they make many leaders feel overwhelmed and challenged, this remarkable book provides help. The Unfinished Leader is a modern handbook for recognizing, facing, and inspiring others to expose the real issues that underlie paradoxes in modern organizations. Leaders must first recognize situations they will never be able to solve and understand how to confront the barriersin their own heads and their organizationsthat push them towards seeking ultimate solutions that dont exist.
