Our models of business are rooted in research done before most of the economical, technological and social disruptions we know today. So does our understanding of leadership and organizations need upgrading?
I guess this is the kind of reasoning that has led a reviewer to call me ‘the first leadership guru for the digital generation’. I’m pretty sure that’s not true on a number of fronts but nevertheless my aim as a writer is to challenge our leadership practices in search of continued excellence.
A publisher gave me the chance to write my first book and enough readers ensured I was given three more chances to share my thoughts.
Form 'The Connected Leader' in which I explored the need to reconnect our formal organisations to the social networks that underpin their effectiveness to 'Disciplined Collaboration' where I focused on how to make collaboration work, via 'Leadershift' and 'Follow the Leader', my work as an author has been driven by the same mantra - There must be a better way and together we can find it!
I do not write to impress or because I have all the answers. I write to engage and start conversations. Please do contact me if you would like to share your thoughts.
