To readers of my blog, you will notice a few excerpts that I’ve posted recently from this book. I can put a lot more.
This very good book on leadership identifies those moments of time when an organization has momentum and things are going well, but wise leadership realizes that necessary long-term changes should be made.
During this “chaotic” time, it is important for leaders to understand those changes and the many ripple effects that will come from them. It is also crucial to communicate well to your organization’s followers (who will tend to resist change).
Being willing to make changes to an organization when things are going well is gutsy. It takes courage and it takes wisdom.
This book should be read by all leaders. I found it to be very helpful.
