A new book for 2020 - Leadership is not a position; it is individuals stepping forward and choosing to make a difference, by connecting people with purpose. This connectedness to something bigger than ourselves imparts meaning for leaders and employees alike. It stresses the importance of business outcomes as well as human wellbeing in a complex world of constant change.
This book considers how leaders can connect by caring, inspiring, appreciating, developing and empowering. It considers how balance can be achieved between doing the right thing for the business (effective management) and doing them in the right way for people (leadership principles). By establishing a transformational environment for teams, projects or organizations, our human need to contribute and succeed can be harnessed.
What is different is the shift from a traditional, hierarchic notion of control, to values of trust and fulfilment that can be applied equally well in small teams, virtual teams and global corporations. This shift can also be applied equally well by individual managers, project leaders or senior executives with the desire and imagination to create a shared sense of purpose.
