Leadership At Scale

Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen
Authors:
Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen

Traditional approaches to leadership development focus on a small number of individuals at the top. However, in today's world of constant change and decentralized decision-making, organizations need effective leaders at all levels of their organizations. That requires a much broader and deeper pool of leadership talent, and most organizations fall far short of what they need.Leadership at Scale defines a new approach. In it, top experts at McKinsey, the world's number one leadership factory, expose the secrets of how to drive leadership development that reaches the entire organization, adapts to diverse contexts and achieves impact at scale. Grounded in extensive research and the global experience of +25 leadership experts and illustrated with a fictional step-by-step case with numerous real-life examples, this book provides leaders with the systematic and fact-based approach they need to unlock organizational performance through leadership effectiveness.

Counter Mentor Leadership

Kelly Riggs, Robby Riggs
Authors:
Kelly Riggs, Robby Riggs

This book is the result of over twenty-five years of combined experience from Kelly and Robby Riggs-dynamic, occasionally irreverent, always insightful, father (Boomer) and son (Millennial), who work with organizations grappling daily with multi-generational conflict. Through their collaboration, Kelly and Robby share their very different perspectives on the same problems most companies are STILL dealing with, but haven't had the courage or the tools, to address. Issues such as: a shocking lack of leadership skills; the culture-killing generational divide that is demolishing many companies; and the stunning, often unrecognized impact of technology on the workplace. In their "shamelessly funny, brilliantly written" debut book, Kelly and Robby will:· Discuss today's workplace dynamics, including the changes in communication modes, the influx of technology, and the impact of Millennials and Digital Natives · Explain how a one-sided approach to leadership focused on "managing" Millennials is grossly insufficient, resulting in an inability to attract and retain critical young talent· Explore the new challenges of leadership inherent with the explosion of technology-time compression, distractions, complexity and the pace of change· Reveal how old leadership challenges persist, and explore how the younger generation will expose those challenges more than ever· Detail the CounterMentor leadership model and prescribe specific tactics and techniques for addressing both old and new leadership issues
