Publisher's Summary

The best leaders make everyone around them better - and this kind of pervasive positive impact is something we all aspire to. But often, despite our best intentions, we're tripped up by subtle psychological states of which we are not even aware. It does not have to be that way.

Just as the Wright Brothers combined science and practice to finally realize the dream of flight, Ryan and Robert Quinn combine research and personal experience to demonstrate how to reach a psychological state that elevates us and those around us to greater heights of achievement, integrity, openness, and empathy. It's the psychological equivalent of aerodynamic lift, and it is the fundamental state of leadership.

Lift draws on recent advances in positive psychology and organizational science to describe four questions that, when asked in any situation, will help us experience the fundamental state of leadership. Engaging personal stories illustrate how the Quinns and others have applied these concepts at work, at home, and in the community.

This updated edition includes two new chapters. Chapter 12 describes a learning process and a social media platform the Quinns created to help people experience the fundamental state of leadership. In chapter 13 the Quinns share new insights into tapping in to human potential. More than ever this is a book that will enable anyone, in any position, to rise to the call to leadership.
