9781118296202: From Smart to Wise: Acting and Leading with Wisdom

A fresh and timely approach to nurturing wise, resilient, and flexible leadership in a world of growing complexity

Leaders tend to obstinately stick to the leadership style that brought them most success in the past, usually one of two extreme styles: functional leadership that focuses on operational excellence or smart leadership that focuses on growth. When a leader's focus is too functional, the organization becomes introverted and can focus too much on bottom-line profitability while missing out on top-line growth opportunities. But when leaders focus too much on smart leadership, the organization may experience quick growth but lose its effectiveness quickly.

From Smart to Wise offers a new approach that balances the two styles to achieve a form of wise leadership that is both functional and smart. Drawing on inspiring real-life stories of historical and contemporary wise leaders such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and even Mahatma Gandhi, the authors identify six characteristics of wise leaders and offer a practical framework to help readers develop their own style of wise leadership.

  • A timely and innovative approach to leadership
  • Written by noted speakers who conduct dozens of keynote speeches and workshops, training thousands of people annually

Review:

Q & A with Prasad Kaipa and Navi Radjou, authors of From Smart to Wise

What does it mean to go from smart to wise?

In a leadership context, it means taking your existing smartness to the next level and beyond--not by getting smarter or thinking smarter or working smarter, but by cultivating your practical wisdom. Wisdom leverages your intelligence: your thinking and your leadership become more adaptable, broad-based, and sustainable. Wisdom gives you ethical clarity and a sense of purpose--enabling you to apply your smartness in the service of others.

Why should readers care about practical wisdom?

The world is changing very rapidly. What you learned when you went to college, when you first started in the company, or when you first became successful will no longer get you results today. In fact, your smartness of today may very well become your in-competence tomorrow. Being smart (even very, very smart) just isn't enough anymore. Wisdom helps broaden your perspective so you can respond to external events with poise and discernment. By bringing a balance between smartness and wisdom you can become more effective and successful.

Our message is not that you have to give up or dial back your smartness--not at all. Rather, deliberately cultivating wisdom helps you deploy your smartness and expertise much more effectively. Not incidentally, it also allows you to achieve personal growth and bring long-lasting value to yourself, your organization, and society at large.

How will this book help readers move from smart to wise?

We'll help you assess where you are currently in your leadership evolution, and offer a six-step roadmap to monitor your progress--along with tools, a framework, and real world examples of smart, wise leaders from Alan Mulally to Ratan Tata to Wendy Kopp.

The tools and framework will help you gain clarity about your role as a leader, allowing you to

  • act in ways that are both authentic and appropriate
  • delegate effectively and let others get credit
  • make tough decisions without losing sleep
  • lead and collaborate with people who think, feel, and act very differently from you
  • foster a productive, sustainable work environment

Our experience coaching over one hundred senior leaders and teaching these tools to thousands of executives has shown that integrating practical wisdom with business smarts will make you feel less stressed and more capable of managing change. It will help you become an ever more influential, effective leader.

Why did you write this book?

For 25 years, our work has involved studying how people learn, listen, lead, think, and create--and helping them do it better in a business context. Back then, we were involved in a project where we interviewed about 200 highly accomplished people, including Nobel laureates, CEOs, thought leaders, and athletes, exploring what qualities make them successful. We identified two pathways to success in this group: one that favors smartness and one that leads to wisdom. We found these paths are distinct but not mutually exclusive--in fact, they build on one other. But one, the "smart" path, gets more attention and accolades in today's leadership circles, even though the other, the "wise" path, makes success more sustainable.

Since then, we've coached over one hundred senior leaders and worked in executive education settings with about forty thousand executives from all over the world. Our experience has deepened our original insights and given us vast practical experience in their application. It has become clear to us that the path of practical wisdom (incorporating both smart and wise approaches) is essential in these times of greater complexity, accelerating globalization, and rapid technology shifts. We decided to write a book that distilled our decades of work into a practical process that smart leaders could use to cultivate practical wisdom.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for From Smart to Wise

"From Smart to Wise teaches the importance of working together and shows that everyone can contribute to making the world a better place."
Alan Mulally, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company

"We are entering a new era of 'conscious capitalism' in which enlightened organizations will strive to serve a higher purpose that transcends profit maximization. This thought-provoking book proposes pragmatic pathways for smart leaders to become wise leaders who will run the conscious businesses of tomorrow."
John Mackey, co-CEO and cofounder, Whole Foods Market

"An invaluable guide to negotiating leadership in a world that expects both reflection and decisive action from the C-suite. This enjoyable book reminds us that leadership success requires continual communication, motivation, and connection to a meaningful purpose."
Beth Comstock, chief marketing officer, GE

"Leaders can't rely on smartness alone to solve the complex issues and paradoxes they face today. This seminal book shows how leaders across sectors can cultivate practical wisdom and use it to create sustainable value for all stakeholders."
Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman, the World Economic Forum

"In a leadership landscape of greater volatility, uncertainty, and public attention, the wisdom conveyed by Kaipa and Radjou in From Smart to Wise will prove invaluable for any executive seeking lasting impact and fulfillment."
Dominic Barton, global managing director, McKinsey & Company

"Few developments for leadership are more important in today's world than learning how to blend eastern wisdom traditions with western pragmatism. From Smart to Wise is an immensely practical guide for those who are serious about their development as leaders."
Peter Senge, founding chair, Society for Organizational Learning; New York Times best-selling author, The Fifth Discipline

"Kaipa and Radjou remind us that at the top of the intelligence hierarchy isn't the individual genius but the genius maker who has the wisdom to lead for the common good and evoke the best in others. The path from smart to wise should be the aspiration of all who lead in the knowledge economy."
Liz Wiseman, Wall Street Journal best-selling author, Multipliers
