In the twenty-first century, leaders are having to speak a new language, create fluid organic structures, and recognise organisations as systems with self-renewing capacity. This book explores what real leadership means, encouraging the reader to look within -- examine assumptions and make explicit the trusted mental models, seek out reflective space and embark on the journey of authentic self-expression. The reader is encouraged to ask such questions as: What do these issues, these challenges, mean for me and the organisation? What action should we take to turn these challenges into limitless possibilities? Topics covered include: Awareness -- The Metaskills of the Leader; Openness -- The Times are a Changing; Simplicity -- New Science and Leadership; Complexity -- Uncertainty a Change; Connectivity -- Communication, Conversation a Dialogue; Process -- Strategy a Leadership; Ambiguity -- Leadership Incongruities, Tensions a Paradoxes.Insights on Leadership: Service, Stewardship, Spirit, and Servant-Leadership. ...
