Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Peter A. Schein, Edgar H. Schein

Narrated By: Tom Dheere

Date: August 2018

Duration: 3 hours 59 minutes

Summary:

The more traditional forms of leadership that are based on static hierarchies and professional distance between leaders and followers are growing increasingly outdated and ineffective. As organizations face more complex interdependent tasks, leadership must become more personal in order to insure open trusting communication that will make more collaborative problem solving and innovation possible. Without open and trusting communications throughout organizations, they will continue to face the productivity and quality problems that result from reward systems that emphasize individual competition and “climbing the corporate ladder”. Authors Edgar Schein and Peter Schein recognize this reality and call for a reimagined form of leadership that coincides with emerging trends of relationship building, complex group work, diverse workforces, and cultures in which everyone feels psychologically safe. Humble Leadership calls for “here and now” humility based on a deeper understanding of the constantly evolving complexities of interpersonal, group and intergroup relationships that require shifting our focus towards the process of group dynamics and collaboration. Humble Leadership at all levels and in all working groups will be the key to achieving the creativity, adaptiveness, and agility that organizations will need to survive and grow.

    *Misnamed book* that never actually tells you how to be humble or lead. It's probably the worst book I've ever listen to. I expected a book on how to lead humbly, but instead I got a book that said "it's good to be nice and work together!" over and over, but never actually tell you how to be a humble leader. You were being *talked at* for 4 hours (similar to listening to main stream media news today, where they tell you what to think and you're not allowed to question that). The whole book says "You should be this way", but it never tells you how. It just gives you examples of people working together and how the outcome was positive. What does that do for anyone? A good project management book could have done the same thing. Anyone with half a brain knows to work with others. Then it says "start working together and practice that. Be interesting and ask culturally appropriate questions." Chapter 9, people! What a dumb waste of money book.
