TWO UK CONSULTANTS ARGUE THE CASE FOR A FRESH LOOK AT BUSINESS LEADERSHIP IN THE DECADER AHEAD


BOOK TITLE: Reframing the Leadership Landscape: Creating a Culture of Collaboration.

In an uncertain and complex world leaders should not only respond to the speed of change but anticipate it. Sometimes it is unexpected, sometimes the signs are there but the dots are not joined.  Leaders need to adapt to a changing ecosystem in which the biggest challenges cross boundaries of the public, private and non-public sectors requiring closer collaboration. Aggressive individualism is no longer a sustainable basis for companies needing to deliver social and economic value beyond narrow self-interest and short termism to balance shareholder stakeholder conflict. Despite advances in business education in terms of supply and availability, organisational leaders cannot rest on their educational achievements they must become lifelong students. Dr Roger Hayes (visiting fellow Greenwich University and fellow at Henley Business school) and Dr Reginald Watts onetime CEO of Burson Marsteller and who is a past chair of the PRCA and a Past President of CIPR:  LONDON, argue there are significant strands that need attention by ambitious managers  who seek the business heights. The tools are described in their book Reframing the Leadership Landscape: Creating a Culture of Collaboration in some detail and as they say “the tools are ready to be unpacked”. The only question is whether aspirant leaders are sensitive enough to read the signals and develop new skills to create the collaborative paradigm that will help them fill the leadership void. Dr Roger Barker, Director of Corporate Governance at the UK Institute of Directors says in his Forward “the book provides business leaders with guidance and inspiration on how to nurture a culture which can help build trust in business”.  John Board, Dean of Henley Business School says “this well written book leads the way in promoting the changes required to maintain business growth and profitability”. The book in its global emphasis outlines a new face for capitalism and launched 1st June 2015.   ICCO members get a 35% discount on this book by using the discount code: G15JLD35 when buying the book directly from the publisher here.
