“Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader’s Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You” by Frances X. Frei and Anne Morriss – Book Essentials
How should a leader be? What is your favorite CEO style?:
** A CEO that is polite, accepting most of the team’s excuses and under pressure from the Board?
** One that is polite, tough and relatively fair, difficult to work with and well perceived by the Board?
“Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader’s Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You” came in June 2020 to change a bit our views on the efficient leadership styles. There has been much written on the topic of efficient leadership, especially at the CEO level.
The general research literature agrees overall on several traits of an effective leader:
– she gets results…
– … Without damaging the team…
– … Empowers others without giving up control…
– … And overall creates an organisation admires by customers and competitors.
Frances Frei and Anne Morriss offer in their new book a different perspective. Your success as a leader is directly proportional with your ability to unleash the maximum potential in those around you. This leadership potential depends on how far and smart are you empowering the others around you. Of course, this is just an ingredient of an organizations’ success – ultimately no company can survive only on good leadership skills.Read More »“Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader’s Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You” by Frances X.
