What do you want from a new book about leadership? • up-to-date ideas and tips to appraise and improve your skills • an opportunity to factor your wellbeing and your family priorities into the workplace mix-master • a planning system that will make a real difference to your objectives • an Australian reference frame to work within • ways to make your career thrive. You have chosen well. This book defines leadership as something we all engage in, at work, at home or in the community. This is in contrast to the learning and development view that ‘leadership’ is a special group of skills used at work by those among us who have risen to positions of authority. Everyone is a leader. This book explores three domains in which the practice of holistic leadership takes place. • the personal domain in which you ‘lead’ yourself • the priority people domain, which acknowledges there are a number of key people who are most important in your life • the professional domain, which includes your employer, competitors, colleagues and groups with whom you work. Leadership is thus seen as a balancing act between wellbeing and accomplishment in each of these three domains. This flags the importance of effective whole-of-life planning and review processes, as opposed to lots of workplace key result areas (KRAs). Leadershift offers a planning template and critical timeframes around which to regularly appraise and reset your objectives. You will see that ‘Leadershift’ has a system, as well as a point of view. Leadershift gets down to the business-end of leadership as well. It tackles the core concerns of bosses by enabling you to assess and develop your: • leadership style • competency development • team performance • career development • high-level communication skills. Chapters are supported by the comprehensive exercises in the Workbook, which you can purchase along with the book. A significant amount of critical research has gone into Leadershift and recommended reading is provided in the end notes at the end of the book, for those who are interested in furthering their knowledge.Leadershift is a reaction to a time of imbalance in many people’s work lives, which goes largely unchallenged. A bottom-up approach is offered, hopefully before any more of us go head down. As author of Leadershift, I provide a range of services associated with the publication.
