We the Leader Introduction
There was a time when top-down leadership worked like a charm, but that time has long passed. We all know the traditional hierarchies that reward conformity, inequity, and exclusion are a drain on organizations. But as a leader, how do you break old organizational habits and cultures, leverage the collective creativity of your workforce, and drive positive business results?
Jeffery Spahn has helped industry leading companies like Capital Group, Steelcase, and Encova develop and implement powerful collaborative leadership models, and in We the Leader, he shares his winning methods with you. Spahn walks you through the process of developing a new perspective on the very nature of leadership and embracing a highly effective alternative approach—an evolved process and exceptional practice for leading leaders that is backed by the latest neuroscience. We the Leader explains how to:
· Incorporate an organic diversity, equity, and inclusion operating system
· Lead leaders in a way that expands and harmonizes all the chiefs on the executive team
