Discover a new way of thinking about leadership - learn how anyone, at any level of an organization, can be a leader. Today's business, political, and not-for-profit worlds are plagued by a leadership disease - the overly simplistic view of leadership as something that resides in one person, or a few people, who influence lower-level subordinates.
This wrong-headed view of leadership is dangerous - it fosters corruption, abuse of power, and the waste of human talent.
Twisted Leadership offers a cure for this leadership disease. The book shows you that leadership is a dynamic, complex social process, not just a role occupied by an individual at the top.
You'll learn how to combine four practical strategies - self, super, shared, and socially responsible leadership - to create a new kind leadership that can be exchanged among all members of an organization based on the context, goals, knowledge, experience, or general needs of everyone involved.
It's the ultimate cure for the leadership disease. Learn: How the leadership disease was originally contracted what damage it can doWhy today's common approaches to leadership practice aren't good enoughHow to view leadership as a process, not just a roleHow to use the four strategies of twisted leadership to treat the disease The book concludes with prescriptions to facilitate sustainable twisted leadership.
You'll discover how the lines between leaders and followers (who often know more and are in a better position to exercise leadership over themselves and others at key points in work processes) have become blurred. And after reading this book, you'll see that a new kind of leadership has arrived, just in time.
