The new breed leader is lean, clean, clear and fit-for-purpose.
Fit-for-Purpose Leadership is the result of collaboration among 18 different authors from a worldwide think-tank called Leadership Gigs. In the book, they share their current best thinking on corporate wellness and wellbeing: health, mindset, social, meaning and purpose, best-practice and emerging trends. And what it takes to be fit-for-purpose.
As a group, all the authors and the other members of Leadership Gigs share a commitment to actively foster the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders. A significant proportion of the ongoing revenue is donated to The Princes Trust which creates amazing opportunities for determined young entrepreneurs. This is part of a UN Global Goals initiative with a specific focus on supporting Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth.
Antoinette’s chapter (chapter 17) is entitled It’s Time to Put Leadership on the To-Do List. It was inspired by a client who asked us to run a session at an offsite to help his senior team spend less time focusing on operational management and more time focusing on strategic leadership.
