I was inspired and fascinated by this book, as it confirmed some of my own ideas about where companies and leaders should be going and introduced many new ones. I read it cover-to-cover in about four days!

Part 1 surveys the evolution of organizations and the social and industrial forces that formed them.
Part 2 talks briefly about the great changes that took place during the 20th century. Useful background.
Part 3 describes what the authors call the transorganization. I am not crazy about neologisms, but I understood that they wanted to emphasize how different these new organizations are in their characteristics, the results they generate, and the most importantly, the language that they use, which is so indicative of the values in the "organizational soul".

The authors point out that we need strategy to invent the future of our organizations, leadership to make the needed change, and soul in the sense that personal values and inner beliefs must be consonant and in harmony with the organization. There has been too little of this in the past, to the great detriment of both sides.

Part 4 was very exciting to me, as it lays out the characteristics of the transleader. I admire them, and aspire to them. Part 6 on Intentional Transleadership builds on them very effectively, by virtually giving a step-by-step how-to guide. Part 7 then details the personal transformations that we need to make. As an entrepreneur with plans to build a global organization, this is useful stuff!

Part 5, on Transorganizational Strategy was also very interesting, but I jumped ahead and then came back to it, as I wanted to work on my personal transleadership first.

I found the book visionary, and unexpectedly exciting.

Sertly and Huberman have created a strong conceptual model for Transorganizational Leadership in the context of the evolution of organizations and leadership and in the spirit of guiding oneself and one's organization from the core. Of particular value is their six-faceted model of the organization's "prism of the soul" and subsequent juxtaposition of the leader's six facets.

I think their work integrates nicely with "Theory U" by Scharmer and "Good to Great" by Collins. I think it offers a little more robust framework for "tribes" than the book by the same title by Godin.

They have clearly identified an important new dimension of organizational life; that of its "soulfulness" and deeper integration of people, mission and leadership for which organizations are particularly hungry.

I strongly recommend this book.

Strategy, Leadership and the Soul is a wonderful gift that contains many valuable insights and truths for where organizations should be setting their sights to thrive. It not only provides a window into the soul of organizations, but more importantly into the souls of the executives running them, to transparently re-examine their values, assumptions, and strategies and the behaviors being deployed to achieve performance results. With fear, paranoia, self-deception and the associated defense routines infiltrating many boardrooms, a deep, truthful look in the mirror is required to chart a different course to success, and this book provides the opportunity to do just that.

The book does not contain the "how to", but I do not believe that is the intent. Recognizing that boards and executive leadership have a social responsibility to treat people as people, rather than objects to achieve what management wants, is an essential and critical step to make the transition to the thriving organization presented. Once this authentic self-actualization occurs and a new course of discovery is charted, there are many tools and best practices out there that can help to build organizational trust, and improve the communication, commitment and employee engagement necessary to achieve better performance results, both in the current conditions and in the future.

Being an executive in today's environment is an extremely tough and thankless job, however there are many resources to help those bold enough to accept the reality, venture out, challenge the status quo, and make the transition to a different operating system. This book is one such resource. It's a refreshing wake-up call to reflective, thoughtful action that will lead us into the future with confidence.
