Leaders today are grappling with complex choices, diverse customers and employees, and unprecedented uncertainty in the economic environment. Business models are becoming obsolete, cost and performance pressures are growing, regulatory requirements are changing, and trust in institutions is declining. Tackling these and other growing demands requires every leader to radically rethink what constitutes effectives leadership.
Leading in Times of Crisis, Navigating Through Complexity, Diversity, and Uncertainty to Save Your Business, presents a new approach and concrete steps to compete in this complex, diverse, and uncertain marketplace.
Drawing on compelling research and more than twenty interviews with CEOs and top-level executives, former executives and professors, David L. Dotlich, Peter C. Cairo and Stephen H. Rhinesmith highlight the growing urgency to evolve from a traditional, one-dimensional leadership model to what they term “whole leadership.”
Whole leadership allows leaders to act in three ways that are important now but absolutely essential to their business in the future:
- Rethink your business
- Connect with stakeholders
- Live your values
In an accessible, no-nonsense style, the authors provide new and experienced leaders with specific action steps for facing difficult choices, engaging diverse customers and employees, and acting in the face of uncertainty to deliver results and move companies forward in a turbulent, demanding, and resource-constrained world.
Leading in Times of Crisis will help you become a “whole leader” by aligning your purpose, skills, and decisions with the outcomes your business requires. Read it to discover how every leader has the potential to make a difference in this new world.
