Foreword by Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Over his long tenure in policing, Ward Clapham has broken with many leadership beliefs and behaviours that were ineffective and unproductive, hence the title of his book series Breaking With the Law. In the face of sometimes harsh criticism, Ward has discovered the ultimate secret for quantum improvement: Every breakthrough first requires a break with the old paradigms, practices, and principles that tether people and organizations to the status quo.
Lead BIG: Discovering the Upside of Unconventional Leadership defines and describes the paradigm shift needed to move away from the command and control style of managing people toward a more proactive, unleashing of talent. His own inspiring stories and results coupled with scientific research, anecdotes, quotes, and historical accounts lead to powerful break-with insights in each chapter applicable for leaders in all areas of the public and private sectors.
This book will inspire leaders to think again about the effectiveness of their current methods and established rules of engagement. Explore how Ward and his team adjusted to keep the organization proactive, flexible, and innovative within a constantly changing landscape. Learn how he rooted advanced leadership principles into previously rigid police cultures, and how those principles are now being adapted throughout the world. Discover how he was able to successfully "break with the law" within a command-and-control structure. Lead BIG: Discovering the Upside of Unconventional Leadership is an inspiring journey of discovery with one of Canada's top cops as he relates tales of confronting and combating the status quo to generate positive change.
