Clear Leadership: Sustaining Real Collaboration and Partnership at Work
Gervase R. Bushe one of HR Magazine's Most Influential Thinkers 2016
What happened to that win-win partnership with your boss, colleage, or direct report that suddenly dissolved into mistrust and suspision? Despite your best intentions, how did hidden agendas, unresolved conflicts, and miscommunication get in the way?
With new research, fresh insight, and up-to-date examples of what it takes to collaborativelyy organize and sustain healthy relationships at work, this newly revised edition of Clear Leadership tackles these issues head-on. Building on the powerful concepts that made the first edition such a success, Gervase Bushe explains why even the most promising partnerships get derailed and what you can do about it.
There is great power in his idea that we construct the world and become effective when we get this, share this, and get interested in the stories of others. This book makes leadership accessible to all, even the quiet, shy, avoid-eye-contact ones among us. It is also written with elegant simplicity. Buy it, read it, pass it around.
