The Eight Paradoxes of Great Leadership
Leading teams today is more complex than it was a generation ago.
People join organizations with higher levels of education, expectation, exposure and emotion. They also come with a sense of entitlement than past generations of team members. This doesn’t make them poor workers, just different. Great leaders adapt to lead them well by practicing paradoxes, such as displaying both confidence and humility; by being both visible and invisible; by leveraging both their vision and their blind spots. Author Dr. Tim Elmore helps leaders of all kinds navigate rapidly changing environments, as well as manage teams who bring a range of new demands to the workplace that haven’t been seen even one generation prior.
After working alongside Dr. John C. Maxwell for twenty years and having trained hundreds of thousands of emerging leaders—Dr. Elmore shares the secrets of next generation leaders who have practiced the unique paradoxes outlined in this book and inspired their team members in a way that a paycheck never could.
