Some months ago we were asked if we’d consider writing a suite of books which developed some of the themes we’ve been exploring on the Happy Manager. So we are pleased to announce the publication of the first of these: Uncommon Leadership: how to build competitive advantage by thinking differently.
The overall aim of this book is to explore the things that good leaders have in common, and to suggest ways to make these more common in organizations. The key to this is encouraging leaders to think differently but this alone is not enough. Business leaders need to develop competitive advantage, by challenging conventional wisdom, by asking different questions, and by connecting the “new” common sense to opportunities.
We hope Uncommon Leadership can help you to do all of these things. It was written to stimulate your thinking, sharpen your practice, and act as a springboard for better leadership and better organizations. It’s packed with anecdotes, quotes, stories and challenging research all brought to life with an emphasis on the uncommon insights which can help leaders to think and act differently.
So we’d like to introduce the book, with a special thanks to all those managers and leaders who have shared their experiences, helped us hone our ideas, and spurred us on to write the book by their encouraging feedback. We wrote this with you in mind!
For more information, go to our dedicated book website: www.uncommonleadership.co.uk. Here you’ll find more information on the contents, a free chapter to download, and a range of tools to help you make the most of the book.
