The Five Literacies of Global Leadership: What Authentic Leaders Know and You Need to Find Out
Richard David Hames
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
New research has exposed our leadership paradigm as a outdated mess of flawed models and practices. By working with great leaders and observing their common attitudes and behaviours, Richard Hames has cracked a universal code based on intelligence, appreciation and collaboration. This code unlocks Five Literacies of Global Leadership.
These behaviours are the trade secrets of the artists and alchemists among us. Often instinctively, these leaders charge others with energy, search for new perspectives and embrace diversity. And they are driven by dialogue. This book reveals approaches and attitudes that they all share - and that can make anyone an exceptional leader.
"This is a ground-breaking book. It presents a powerful case for worldviews that transcend ideology, history and culture and work towards collaborative solutions to the problems of our planet. if our leaders could rise above self-interest and greed to implant the five literacies, humanity would have a more assured and viable future."
