Emmanuel Gobillot, a senior leadership consultant, is an author for thoughtful readers. His books are smart, subtle and nuanced. He insists that you look at established truths in new ways. In some cases, Gobillot demolishes old verities and substitutes new realities, as you will see in his examination of leadership. He shows why the old leadership paradigm, based on "experience, expertise and control," is defunct. According to Gobillot, modern leaders must change their mindsets if they wish to stay relevant. getAbstract recommends his provocative book to executives and managers who want their organizations to succeed in the new collaborative work environment.

Emmanuel Gobillot thinks so (and I happen to agree). Increasing pace of change, the age of mass collaboration, the age of particpation, the rising millenials, and the wiki-economy will (and are) having profound changes on how business is conducted. This book gives you the roadmap to start figuring out the "shifts" you need to make.

The book ooutlines the four shifts that will get you thinking : Simplicity, Narrative, Tasks, and Love. Go buy this book now!

Emmanuel Gobillot's timely book takes us on a journey into the future of leadership. One of the first surprises we encounter on this journey is that, given the sudden increase in the pace of change brought about by the rapid spread of digital technology and its incredible capacity for mass collaboration, it turns out that the future is now. "Leadershift" makes the case for how the "new now" is rendering our traditional notions of experience, knowledge, effort, and power completely irrelevant. The new age of mass collaboration follows a radically different set of rules that completely redefines the fundamental roles and responsibilities of leaders. If you want to learn the secrets for leading in this "new now," Gobillot's entertaining stories and compelling insights will show you how to take advantage of the new efficiencies of mass collaboration to successfully navigate businesses through the turbulent waters of our unprecedented times.
