This insightful book shows that followers have their own powerful motivations to follow. Many relate to their leader as to some important person from the past-a parent, a sibling, a close friend. With major shifts in family structure and other social changes (especially transformations in technology and work life), these transferences” have grown complex-making leaders’ work more challenging.
The key for modern-day leaders? Being sensitive to how a group’s collective psychology and social context shape its leadership needs. For example, factory workers in a large city during a period of relative calm would need very different leaders than people working in a star management consultancy during a time of stiffening competition. The author outlines the profound shift from a more bureaucratic society and leadership model to an interactive, collaborative one-and provides crucial advice on how to become a leader we need.”
Offering provocative psychological insight and thoughtful analysis of social and cultural changes, this book examines leadership through an entirely new lens.
