Rating
All Leadership starts with thinking - about problems, about possibilities and about organisational capabilities. But thinking never occurs in a vacuum. Modern leadership is about shaping the social process of engagement, strategizing and decision-making so that workers can create immeasurable value. This book is about what executives can do to transform the thinking of those around them. It is about the circuitry that lies beneath the change process and the habits and norms that govern business conversations. For every senior person that ever had a sense of deja vu in the boardroom or was horrified to see great minds producing pulp, this is the book for them. This book will give you exemplary decision-making, quicker organizational change and focussed leadership.

'The relationship between effective leaders and highly performing organisations is clear.

Simon Woodroffe Founder of YO! Sushi and YO! Everything else 'Its no longer enough, when leading in a complex, connected and fast changing world, to read about how others have lead and changed organisations in the past - even the recent past. This is the first leadership book that offers leaders real tools to help them understand how people think and real methods to change that thinking. Robin Ryde has pulled off the difficult trick of intellectual and academic analysis and grounded it in real experience having observed first hand hundreds of today's senior leadership figures across all sectors in action. Apply the tools - they really work!' Steve Mcguirk, President, Chief Fire Officers Association 'Ryde's work on leadership offers refreshing insights into how leadership can be expressed in terms of serving a group in their interactions and releasing a group's creative potential to address the challenges they face.' - The Rt Rev David Rossdale, Foundation for Church Leadership 'It's an intriguing book that offers tools to aid an understanding of how people think and methods to change that thinking. Its overall success is in coming an intellectual and academic analysis with the grounding of the author's first-hand observation of hundreds of senior leaders across all sections. - Oliver Rowe, Public Service Magazine 'This book contributes an interesting and valuable perspective on how we think and how that insight can benefit anyone adopting a leading role. Potentially it has far-reaching appeal and I would recommend it to anyone aspiring to improve their self-awareness, and general communication, meeting and change management skills.' Elizabeth Murphy, Library and Information Update
