Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
A revolutionary new framework for leadership in the new economy.
The forces of globalization and collaboration have presented a challenge to the traditional notions of leadership. How does leadership happen when there are many leaders trying to reach a goal with no clear followers? And what does leadership look like when no one person is in charge?
In The Deep Blue Sea, Wilfred Drath responds to these challenges by presenting a new leadership framework called "relational leadership." His revolutionary approach re-articulates the idea of leadership from an individual basis to one where group members share responsibility—resulting in self-organizing leadership. Using the story of a fictional piano company, Drath illustrates the evolution of leadership thought toward this relational leadership, showing how leadership exists within a community when things get done. Through this compelling narrative, the author helps us understand why a new notion of leadership is needed in order to face the challenges of the twenty-first century.
