We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them"
Einstein's famous quote can surely be applied to leadership.
Tomorrow's Company, the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts and Indian conglomerate Tata has given LeaderShape the honour of launching John Knight's substantial contribution to the debate - a publication entitled "The Invisible Elephant and the Pyramid Treasure."
The Forward from Chief Executive, Tony Manwaring reads:
We are delighted – indeed honoured – to publish this contribution on leadership by John Knights: we think this is a gem of a publication, and are thrilled to share it with you.
If leadership is the ‘Invisible Elephant’ in the room of our title, so we dare to believe this work of John’s is a hidden gem that can not only reveal but also change what leadership is, means and needs to be for the twenty-first century. As I write this, I recognise all too well that this may well be a somewhat grandiose claim! See what you think. The real wealth of insight – the ‘Pyramid Treasure’ – is contained in the ‘Eight Integral Competencies of Leadership’ which forms the heart of the work.We have all read books and articles and attended courses on leadership – for us the power of John’s framework is that it brings together the good stuff from all of this material, and frames it within a structure which is logical, sequential, and above all transformative."
The work has alread seen a launch in India with top executives from leading multinationals and national companies. 'Success through corporate sustainability - strategy, leadership and reporting', was a pioneering two-day event hosted by Tata. The programme engaged business leaders from across industry including, Lupin Pharmaceuticals, Tata Chemicals, PwC, Ernst & Young, and professional body like ICWAI.
The UK launch is underway and we are delighted to bring you this taste of what is to come, to whet your appetite!
