Format: Hardcover
While reading this book I saw some key flaws in the leadership style that the organization I work for is implementing. The product we manufacture is based purely on creativity. It requires creative minded people and creative solutions constantly. However, it seems we have adopted the General & Soldiers leadership style in chapter five instead of the Producer& Creative Team in chapter four. I can see the reason for this is because we greatly desire "efficiency and fast deployment", however it seems to falter because of discrepancies over who is really in charge and tends to leave our creative minds feeling rushed and accomplishments seem to go unacknowledged. This breaks down not only the moral of our organization, but leaves us all struggling to reach goals we don't really feel are ours which steers us away from the collaborative effort that As One teaches. Hoping I can share these key concepts at work to revive our sense of teamwork and begin moving cohesively towards what we really desire.

There is so much to be said about what this book offers. Where to begin? Perhaps my purposes are best served by providing a series of five key points:

1. Mehrdad Baghai, James Quigley, and their three collaborators share what was learned from the a two-year Deloitte Flagship Project whose purpose was to examine the challenges of working together "As One." The project's scope was global, nourished and supported by best resources available from the US, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Australia, South Africa, and Japan.

2. Key questions are addressed. For example: What does it take to work As One? To succeed As One? To overcome barriers As One? To cope with failure As One? To become stronger As One?

3. Baghai and Quigley used an advanced forensic data analytic technique called a self-organizing map (SOM). Various maps (they use eight) "find relationships in data where the number of variables makes the analysis complex, and, they divide complicated data into groups of similar items so that you can understand what makes them similar.

4. There are eight leader & followers archetypes: (landlord & tenants, community organizer & volunteers, conductor & orchestra, producer & creative team, general & soldiers, architect & builders, captain & sports team, and senator & citizens. A chapter is devoted to each of the eight. Baghai and Quigley thoroughly explain how leaders and followers can coordinate individual action with a group's collective power.

5. Material about each of the two-part archetypes is organized within this format: Exemplary Individual, Exemplary Business, Key Characteristics of Leader and Team, "Is X the right model for the reader?", and "How to become a better X?

Format: Hardcover
As One is a valuable resource for anyone interested in exploring different avenues of leadership. The eight different archetypes of leadership that the authors describe here are very distinct and powerful. They especially brought this to light with the use of famous leadership scenarios such as Gandhi (Community Organize and Volunteers), Jerry Bruckheimer (Producer and Creative Team), and Omar Bradley (General and Soldiers). These are just a few examples of the examples shown to illustrate these fundamental differences.

Format: Hardcover
getAbstract strongly recommends this expansive, beautifully produced, hugely entertaining book about leaders and followers. Management consultant Mehrdad Baghai and former Deloitte global CEO James Quigley, writing with top Deloitte managers, relate widely diverse stories to show how leaders interact with followers. They draw eight leadership models of collaboration - each of which is proven to work in the right circumstances, and each of which can be applied to organizations today.
