Summary:

oday's business environment requires more effective leadership than ever. In the constantly changing business environment, the leader has the central responsibility of keeping people motivated and productive. Many companies have been downsizing and laying off employees, and leaving behind employees with a wounded morale. To lift this morale, the leader needs to possess characteristics and qualities that cannot be learned from courses taken in business schools alone. These characteristics and qualities can only be learned from life itself in an individual journey of individuation. The leader needs to undergo an initiation process from immature psychology to mature psychology. Traditionally, this process is what makes "men out of boys" and "women out of girls." In analytical psychology this journey is called the hero's journey, which is based on the hero myth and includes several different initiations and growing steps. This study investigates the different initiations included in the hero's journey and the importance of learning how, from them, to be a responsible, effective, charismatic, and powerful leader. The study also illustrates the archetypes, a term developed by Dr. Carl Jung (1959) to describe the original patterns that guide our behavior, involved in the hero's journey and what is required to get through the journey. Heroism is not discussed here in the overall sense in which the public defines heroism. As such, this study does not investigate what motivates people to risk and/or sacrifice their lives by attempting to save people from crashed airplanes. Although this aspect of sacrifice is always present in heroism, this aspect is just one of the many aspects of heroism. Neither a heroic act of saving lives nor being celebrated on the covers of a national newspaper is required to be recognized as a hero. Individuals are all heroes in their own way. Some individuals manifest their heroism in very silent ways (introversion), while other individuals seem always to be in the public eye (extroversion). The essence of heroism always involves taking a journey into the unknown and bringing some sort of knowledge out of the unknown that benefits either society or an organization. The hero brings new prosperity to the organizational wasteland. Heroism in mass media and movie entertainment is very different from heroism in the psychological sense and in the mythological sense, although there are some similar elements. The basic elements of the hero, the villain and the fair maiden, are always present in popular movies, but the steps of the hero's journey are often not involved, which leaves nothing more than a meaningless plot good only for entertainment purposes. These types of movies can steal an individual's sense of understanding of both the myth and the purpose of the hero's journey. This study is neither discussing the heroes of our popular culture, nor is this a study of Hollywood's creations or of celebrated athletes, or even of famed political and war heroes. The focus within this study is a hero's journey in the career of a leader, and how the journey can bring the light (individuation) into the darkness of the organizational wasteland. The legacy of Roberto Goizueta, who died in October 1997, during the writing of this dissertation, is also acknowledged. While his death in itself does not change the conclusions of this dissertation, his contribution to the Coca-Cola Company's success in traveling the hero's journey has been enormous. It remains to be seen what the future brings to this great company after losing such a charismatic and heroic leader.

Summary:

Children's literature is a medium that not only transports the reader into magical worlds of adventure, but that provides important psychological life lessons. Recent trends have shown that it is no longer only children that are reading contemporary works in this genre, but that an increasing number of adults are as well. There are certain adults who have yet to individuate, but can do so by experiencing the process of it, as do child heroes in literature, by identifying with the archetype of the child hero, and by associating with the pattern of the hero's journey. In this way, it can be said that these works of literature and myth are, in essence, adult adventures pretending to be children's stories, and that the successful child hero is symbolic of the adult hero. This research examines the matter of child heroes and heroines who endure the same trials and tribulations of the hero's journey as do adult male heroes, as well as discussion of individuation of the adult reader. The examination is carried out by defining the characteristics and nature of specific child heroes and adult male heroes, including the journey patterns based on the models of Joseph Campbell and Maureen Murdock, and with the meaning of individuation, as put forth by C. G. Jung. The research also draws upon the perspectives of the works by Jung on archetypes and the collective unconscious, and on Freud's analysis of the structural model of the psyche. Because the heroine's journey contains some variances from the male hero's journey, and because the feminine processes such experiences differently, the works of Marie-Louise von Franz will be a part of the analysis. Claims on how adults relate to children's literature will be supported by Jung, through a look at the collective unconscious; and by Jack Zipes, with how moral issues are resolved by identification with archetypes in order to mature. The central argument of this dissertation is that the child hero endures the stages of hero's journey as does the adult male hero, yet only comes-of age, rather than fully individuates; and that un-individuated adult readers are drawn to children's literature because the trials and tribulations endured portray a pattern of experiences also encountered by the adult reader in everyday life, thus allowing for individuation to be achieved. The myths and literature display certain psychological issues and narrate a specific series of events that produce emotional growth for the child hero. The child hero, as an archetype, is symbolic of potential wholeness, and therefore, provides a healing image that enables the un-individuated adult reader to circle back and reclaim the child hero within.

Summary:

The classic story of the hero's journey, where an innocent goes on an adventure and returns a hero, is a metaphor for the everyday journeys taken in life. This is particularly true for the child who navigates through the challenges of adolescence in order to become an adult. Fantasy stories about a hero, such as J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, can be used to help young people through the turbulent times of adolescence. The journey that Harry experiences contains archetypal significance that mirrors the struggles young people go through during their own unique journeys. This dissertation looks at the necessary archetypal transformations that Harry undergoes in order to become a hero, and explains how this relates to the psychological significance of developing youths. This information can then be used by mental health professionals to help their young clients who identify with the challenges that Harry faces, with their own everyday challenges.

Summary:

Unlocking the Source for True Leadership Too many people, men and women alike, have bought into a notion of leadership that exclusively emphasizes traditionally “masculine” qualities: hierarchical, militaristic, win-at-all-costs. The result has been corruption, environmental degradation, social breakdown, stress, depression, and a host of other serious problems. Nilima Bhat and Raj Sisodia show us a more balanced way, an archetype of leadership that is generative, cooperative, creative, inclusive, and empathetic. While these are traditionally regarded as “feminine” qualities, we all have them. In the Indian yogic tradition they're symbolized by Shakti, the source that powers all life. Through exercises and inspirational examples, Bhat and Sisodia show how to access this infinite energy and lead with your whole self. Male or female, leaders who understand and practice Shakti Leadership act from a consciousness of life-giving caring, creativity, and sustainability to achieve self-mastery internally and be of selfless service to the world.

Summary:

As a fiction writer, the goal is to create a story that has an emotional impact on the audience. We all want to write something gripping that people will share with friends and family; a narrative that resonates with the reader, and keeps them revisiting the book for years to come. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. No matter how logical we structure our story, or how perfectly we write our prose, many of us fail to capture the power that all great stories seem to inherently possess. Even well known professionals face this problem. Think about how many times you've picked up a book by a writer you follow, or watched the latest installment in a franchise you love, only to be let down. How many forgettable novels or films have you come across in your lifetime? Some written by reputable authors and screenwriters. Even though the action, mystery, or romance was great, the story fell flat. The narrative lacked some mystical element that every great story seems to inherently possess. This is the major problem every author, writer, poet, screenwriter, and storyteller face. The answer is found in the power of myth. Through centuries of storytelling, a mythological structure called the Monomyth evolved. Some of the most powerful stories of all follow this mythic structure. In this book, fiction author Josh Coker explains how to harness the seemingly magical powers of myth so your story can reach it's fullest potential and create an emotional impact in the audience. Within these pages, you'll learn: -Definition and background of the Monomyth -Three act mythic structure. -The differences between the known world and the special world of your story -What really makes a character heroic -How plot and character feed off of each other, creating both an inner and outer journey -The 18 distinct stages of the Hero's Journey Additionally, this book provides over 72 examples from well known modern stories. Each example will help you understand Hero's Journey, and help you identify the stages in your own book. Every chapter concludes with action steps, which you can immediately take on your story. These will help you infuse mythic power and life into the narrative. By the end of the book, you'll have a basic understanding of the Hero's Journey and a road map for your own story. Ultimately, you'll ensure that your story to reaches it's full potential by taking full advantage of the Monomyth's ancient storytelling secrets.

Summary:

Heroic Leadership is a celebration of our greatest heroes, from legends such as Mahatma Gandhi to the legions of unsung heroes who transform our world quietly behind the scenes. The authors argue that all great heroes are also great leaders. The term ‘heroic leadership’ is coined to describe how heroism and leadership are intertwined, and how our most cherished heroes are also our most transforming leaders. This book offers a new conceptual framework for understanding heroism and heroic leadership, drawing from theories of great leadership and heroic action. Ten categories of heroism are described: Trending Heroes, Transitory Heroes, Transparent Heroes, Transitional Heroes, Tragic Heroes, Transposed Heroes, Transitional Heroes, Traditional Heroes, Transforming Heroes, and Transcendent Heroes. The authors describe the lives of 100 exceptional individuals whose accomplishments place them into one of these ten hero categories. These 100 hero profiles offer supporting evidence for a new integration of theories of leadership and theories of heroism.

Summary:

Many are familiar with Joseph Campbell’s theory of the hero’s journey, the idea that every man from Moses to Hercules grows to adulthood while battling his alter-ego. This book explores the universal heroine’s journey as she quests through world myth. Numerous stories from cultures as varied as Chile and Vietnam reveal heroines who battle for safety and identity, thereby upsetting popular notions of the passive, gentle heroine. Only after she has defeated her dark side and reintegrated can the heroine become the bestower of wisdom, the protecting queen and arch-crone. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Summary:

Do you feel stuck in your life? Do you wish you could go on an adventure, but think that's only something other ("irresponsible") people do? Have you stopped searching for the answer to the question, "Who am I?" and decided that it's too late to even consider asking, "Who do I want to be?" In his personal memoir, "Experiencing the Hero's Journey," Joseph Riggio, PhD, shares his madcap quest into the mysterious world of the spiritual and neuroscientific under the guidance of a master hypnotist and NLP master trainer, which led him to recognize the "bad learning" he'd accumulated throughout his life and finally experience the freedom to choose to become fully human. In addition to expressing his times of triumph, he also candidly shares his times of despair and embarrassment, so as to offer a clear window into the remarkable journey we're all invited to experience. Dr. Riggio offers his story as a guide so that you can know this: you, too, were made to live a good story. And all good stories are about adventure. Only you can live yours, so isn't it time to finally uncover who you really are and start discovering your own exciting adventure? Welcome to your real life!
