The United States is in a time of profound change and division. Americans are desperate for leaders with integrity to help them thrive during this troubling period, but their search has increasingly come up empty. They need leaders who can place country over political party, community over profit, and the Constitution over personal power. These people must balance old values with contradictory new ideas. They must be able to embrace paradox and be humble servant leaders. In A New Way, New York Times best-selling coauthor and strategist Matthew Dowd, inspired by turbulent times in his own life, shares his model for leadership. He also breaks down the eight paradoxes an innovative leader must embrace:
A New Way offers a model for leadership when America
- Truth and Uncertainty
- Fear and Love
- Confidence and Humility
- Heart and Head
- Big Vision and Local Action
- Realism and Idealism
- Boundaries and Openness
- Delegation and Accountability
needs it most. It allows us to maintain values from our past while looking to the future and working for a better tomorrow.
