Overview

The post-authoritative leader is no longer a manager, but rather a connection architect who facilitates stakeholders, encourages intelligent risk-taking, and, most importantly, breaks stuff. This book is your field guide to becoming a “Breaker,” a leader equipped with the skills to handle the future workforce, market, and industry

Description

What leaders today must realize is that they are living in a post-authoritative, innovation-centric economy. The old skills of authoritarianism, layered hierarchical management structures, and risk-centric philosophies, work schedules, and environments hold very little value in today’s workplace. They’re obsolete. The post- authoritative economy mandates innovation, speed, and connectivity. These new success drivers are all but nonexistent in old-fashioned management systems. The post-authoritative leader is no longer a manager, but rather a connection architect who facilitates stakeholders, encourages intelligent risk-taking, and, most importantly, breaks stuff. This book is your field guide to becoming a “Breaker,” a leader equipped with the skills to handle the future workforce, market, and industry.
