The Innovative Leadership Fieldbook provides field-tested integral approaches to developing leaders, transforming organizations and creating sustainability. It is a leading text for managers, executives and individual contributors that provides a combination of well-researched theory with practical business case studies. Authors Maureen Metcalf and Mark Palmer define leadership from a thoughtful, new perspective and provide six-step process for developing strong leadership qualities.
“Leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership, and by combining them you can improve your capacity to deliver results,” as explained in this book.
An innovative leader is someone who consistently delivers results using:
- Strategic leadership that inspires individual goals and organizations vision and cultures;
- Tactical leadership that influences an individual’s actions and the organizations systems; and
- Holistic leadership that aligns all key dimensions: Individual, culture, action and systems.
Susann Cook-Greuter says “It is one of the first practical and field-tested approaches to supporting the development of leaders and their cultures using an integral perspective. The book brings pertinent new insights into five stages of leadership development. It presents a balanced set of assessment tools and practices for the reader to explore. It thus helps leaders as well as their coaches to deepen their self-awareness and become more effective and productive over time. Best of all, it is an engaging read, carefully designed for optimal learning and richly illustrated with real-life examples and solid advice.”
