Anyone who is part of the new generation of leaders, and all aspiring changemakers, should read this book.’
From the Foreword by Johannes Reck, CEO, Get Your Guide
THE NEW LEADERS OF CHANGE
Change in the 21st century is continuous, ubiquitous, and exponential. It can’t be managed with a mechanistic three-step or seven-step model – that’s ridiculous. Our changing world is simply too fast and too unpredictable for that. Twentieth century ways of leading just aren’t good enough for the 21st century. So where do you start if you want to lead change and transformation?
TOWARD PEOPLE-CENTERED LEADERSHIP
In The New Leaders of Change, Maitri O’Brien, drawing on her 25 years of international experience in Fortune 500 companies, shares her unique new approach to people-centered leadership.
After two years of intense research, involving in-depth interviews with more than 50 next generation leaders from around the world, the call-to-action is clear: you start with people. Because next generation leaders are transforming themselves, their businesses, and the world by putting people, planet, and humanity at the center of their leadership. They are leading with empathy, compassion, purpose, and courage.
IN SEARCH OF NEXT GENERATION LEADERS
Filled with riveting stories from the front-lines of real-world change and transformation, The New Leaders of Change is the missing manual for next generation leaders, leadership development professionals and CEOs of organisations facing exponential change. This book is a critical reminder that, in business, it is always people who drive change, innovation, and transformation.
