This review is from: The Practice of Adaptive Leadership: Tools and Tactics for Changing Your Organization and the World (Hardcover)
With the danger of business collapse all around us, as a corporate HR director, I am continually searching for new and better books dealing with leadership. For me, leadership is the key (and only key) to long-term survival. With our leadership, we must continuously adapt to new realities if we are to live to fight another day.

Important lessons within these pages are:

1. Leading with the courage and skill to challenge the status quo.
2. Deploy themselves with agility.
3. Mobilize others to step into the unknown.

This book offers a realistic hands-on guide to making our leadership successful and more influential. The Practice of Adaptive Leadership will help me enhance my decision making process ensuring that I make not only make more correct decisions but that I make them in a timely manner.

This book provides a thorough and systemic approach to assessing situations and provides guidance into the actions we should take. I particularly appreciated the diagrams, techniques, and activities that help assess the dangerous challenges that lie in our path.

I recommend the Practice of Adaptive Leadership as it will help obtain the leadership skills needed in this complicated arena we call the business world. I would like to also recommend High Altitude Leadership: What the World's Most Forbidding Peaks Teach Us About Success (J-B US non-Franchise Leadership) I believe that most readers will find that it is a very "adaptive" approach also.

I hope you find this review helpful.
