Summary of Leadershift
Reinventing Leadership for the Age of Mass Collaboration
Today’s leaders aren’t the people on the top of the hierarchy; they’re the people who contribute most to the community.
Emmanuel Gobillot, a senior leadership consultant, is an author for thoughtful readers. His books are smart, subtle and nuanced. He insists that you look at established truths in new ways. In some cases, Gobillot demolishes old verities and substitutes new realities, as you will see in his examination of leadership. He shows why the old leadership paradigm, based on “experience, expertise and control,” is defunct. According to Gobillot, modern leaders must change their mindsets if they wish to stay relevant. getAbstract recommends his provocative book to executives and managers who want their organizations to succeed in the new collaborative work environment.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “leadershift” means
- Why leadershift should replace traditional leadership
- How to put leadershift to work to improve your organization and make you a more relevant leader
