Copyright © 2012 Jossey-Bass, an imprint of John Wiley & Sons
“Secure Base Leaders” provide security for others while encouraging them to take risks.
Business leaders should be “secure bases” for their employees – providing security and protection while challenging them to explore and take risks. Consultants George Kohlrieser, Susan Goldsworthy and Duncan Coombe urge leaders to remain calm in emotional situations, recognize others’ potential, stay positive and be accessible. The familiar theme that caring executives foster an engaged, committed workforce has been discussed in other business books. However, these authors take the concept further by adding examples of leaders who dared to make a difference and offering useful advice for developing new skills. getAbstract recommends their insights to executives, department heads, team managers and other leaders, particularly new ones.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to become a “Secure Base Leader,”
- What characteristics secure base leaders possess in common
- How to make your company a secure base
