Fit-For-Purpose Leadership #1
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.
The chapter will help you:
- Answer that age-old question: What’s the difference between leadership and management?
- Understand what current organisations need from leadership and management.
- Develop strategies that leaders can use to create the right balance between leadership and management.

Antoinette Oglethorpe has developed leaders for some of the most successful organisations in the world, including P&G, Accenture and XL Group. But her passion lies with fast-growing, high-tech companies. A defning moment of her career was when she helped start up Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft. As International Learning Director, Antoinette played a key role in developing people to grow the business. And they did just that. Avanade grew to 1200 employees in its first year of operation.
