We are in the middle of an unprecedented crisis of leadership. Leadership thinking and practices no longer hold water in the 21st century. Business, political, and community leaders are struggling to find their way. Political leaders are failing to respond effectively to both the changing context and their stakeholders creating distrust, doubt and dissent. Unethical business practices, escalating bribery and corruption are costing more than 5% of global GDP ($2.6 trillion) annually. Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work, citizens around the world lack confidence in the public and private sectors, and there is shortage of competent and qualified leaders. At the heart of this leadership crisis is relationships. There are simply not enough good leaders to meet the increasing demand for strategic and innovation leadership. Leadership development models remain rooted in old paradigms and are out of sync with our changing world and, despite the rhetoric of many organisations, shifting leadership paradigms is extremely difficult and most organisations continue to make the same mistakes when designing or procuring, delivering and evaluating leadership development programs. Relational and Innovation Leadership takes a hard look at the multibillion dollar leadership development industry and how it is failing to prepare contemporary leaders and build real organisational leadership capacity. It offers a fresh perspective on leadership and leadership development, presenting readers with unique and provocative insights and opportunities to make a real difference to their organisations, communities, and the world. Thought leader, author, and business psychologist Sebastian Salicru draws on his personal transformational development experience and work with leaders and teams in organisations around the word - including some of the most respected Fortune Global 500 companies -and combines this with research that integrates leadership, psychology, creativity and innovation to debunk the most pervasive myths of leadership. Using practical exercises, stories and case studies, Salicru presents Leadership Results(R) - a practical and predictive leadership model for building sustainable leadership capacity, developing individual leaders, boosting employee engagement and delivering breakthrough results through shared and collective leadership. Leading through relationships with integrity provides an unmatchable and unique competitive advantage, delivering innovation and extraordinary outcomes. Relational and Innovation Leadership is a practical guide to assist CEOs, senior executives and middle managers determined to make more impact as leaders. Practitioners responsible for designing, delivering or procuring leadership development solutions, such as HR and OD professionals, leadership coaches, trainers and facilitators, as well enthusiasts and students of leadership, will also find inspiration in this book. Relational and Innovation Leadership informs and educates, inspires and motivates, and challenges readers to take bold action to improve their individual leadership impact and change the status quo forever.
