IN THIS SUMMARY
According to authors Bill Joiner and Stephen Josephs, being a leader in the 21st century business world isn’t easy. Today’s global economy is dynamic, uncertain, and ever-changing. What leaders need in these turbulent times, offer the authors, is agility – the ability to anticipate and adapt to rapidly changing conditions. In Leadership Agility, Joiner and Josephs provide, through real-world scenarios mined from three decades of consulting, coaching, and leadership training in the United States and Canada, the keys to the leadership kingdom. Designed for managers in all economic sectors, from business, government, and non-profit organizations to academia and religious institutions, Leadership Agility shows that lithe leadership can be mastered through a two-step process. First, one must identify their current level of agility. Second, one can then begin to practice new behaviors that will take them to the next level.
