Date: May 2020
Duration: 3 hours 25 minutes
The world is ever-changing in unpredictable ways.
As a leader, you need to constantly re-examine your assumptions of what it means to be 'great' as old models of leadership quickly fade into irrelevance. In short, you need an agile mindset.
But how can you, as a leader, become agile?
We need to update and disrupt past definitions of leadership -- to challenge ourselves and test our relevance often. We need to recognize challenges swiftly and respond decisively, especially when our environment is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility teaches you how to rise to your challenges by describing how leaders met their challenging conundrums with agility and emerged stronger.
This book outlines a powerful model and actionable steps using the Re4 Coaching Model. The model helps you see your world with objective clarity, understand what has to be done and why. Through this model, you gain the resolve and confidence to overcome challenges with authenticity and integrate theoretical learning.
The Re4 coaching model focuses you by using four basic principles:
- Reconstruct the map - change your perception to find the truth;
- Refresh the Lens - identify and remove assumptions and bias;
- Renew the Identity - use your new perception and lens to create a new business persona that tackles change;
- Rebuild the Capabilities - Learn and practice new skills and actions for improved outcomes.
This book bridges the gap between theory and practice through stories of leaders distilled into eight representational paradoxes that can occur in any culture and contexts and contains exercises with guiding questions you can use to navigate your paradoxes.
It's time for you to grow and thrive.
