"Fascinating - A teaching book that I couldn't put down!" If the world is changing, leadership needs to change. The world is changing. It is that simple; it is that complex. Through our work in TomorrowToday Global we have been at the very forefront of this intersection of a changing world and changing leadership across the broad scope of industries and sectors spanning all corners of the globe. And what we see concerns us. We see leaders who are frustrated that they can't mobilize their teams to adapt quickly enough to change. We see leaders who feel the horizon of their strategic plans rushing ever closer, resulting in decision making that often feels closer to guesswork than science. We see leaders battling to manage their teams, to keep and get the most of talent, to develop succession plans and to ensure everyone is focused on the same outcomes. We see leaders exasperated at the lack of initiative their teams have, and yet equally bound by increasing regulation, bureaucracy and inertia. We see leaders struggling to lead. We see leaders unable to admit that they're struggling to lead. Maybe the symptoms we've just listed don't all apply to you, or maybe you have a sense that your organization's problems lie elsewhere. Whatever the specific issues are, we're sure you'll agree with us that leadership isn't what it used to be. And a big part of the reason for this is that leadership itself is changing - just as the world around us is changing in dramatic ways. The leadership theory that underpins our practices of leadership is in need of review. For the most part, the way in which we review and measure leadership practice no longer works. The only way to change all this is for leaders (and those tasked with the responsibility of leadership development) to step back, rethink things and be willing to change. It means asking searching questions, challenging assumptions and revisiting formulae that have, for a very long time, worked rather well. This is easier said than done. But it can be done, and this is what this book is about. Future-focused leaders will gain insight into what it takes to succeed in a time of disruptive change. The book provides both a new lens through which to see the world and leadership, as well as practical tools and tips to help you make the journey towards a new leadership style and approach.

Inspiring communication can make the difference between poor performance and exceptional results. This is why CEOs and HR professionals now believe that the ability to understand, motivate and inspire others is the characteristic that is most important when recruiting senior leaders. Many leaders wrongly perceive they have to become inspired orators if they are to inspire others. Wrong. Language is a system of communication, so the issue is: what system should leaders use to inspire brilliant results? This is the question Kevin Murray answers in The Language of Leaders. Based on original interviews with an extraordinary list of more than 70 top leaders from a wide range of business and public sector organizations, this book provides a unique insight into how these leaders have responded to the demands of a transparent world. It reports on what they have learned and creates a lexicon for successful communication. The message from these leaders is resoundingly clear - communication is now one of the most crucial skills of leadership. Filled with actionable lessons and insights from leaders of high-profile organizations, The Language of Leaders is an invaluable book for anybody in a leadership position, or who aspires to lead.

All leaders make choices, but not all leaders are choice-focused. In Interactional Leadership and How to Coach It: The art of the choice-focused leader Michael Harvey presents an important new theory of leadership which demonstrates how to coach successful choice-making. This clear, wide-ranging book integrates business and psychology, exploring the art of choice-focused leadership through neuroscience, cognitive psychology, existential philosophy and leadership studies. Interactional leadership helps leaders to make informed decisions throughout the "achievement cycle" of strategy, resourcing and delivery, and emphasises the importance of psychological balance. The book features chapter-long case studies which provide unique insights into the leader’s inner world and clearly illustrate how the tightrope of leadership can be mastered. Harvey draws important lessons about decision-making from corporate leaders, politicians and even Shakespeare’s tragic heroes, and addresses the leader’s ethical responsibility for major issues facing us now and in the future. The interactional model also focuses on coaching the multiple roles of leadership, such as global leader, team leader, innovator, entrepreneur and chair of the board. Accessible and practical, Interactional Leadership and How to Coach It is an ideal guide for coaches, leaders, students, trainers of coaches and anyone involved in leadership development and recruitment.
