Collaborative Leadership: Lessons from the Street to the Boardroom by George O’Meara
Businesses everywhere are facing a myriad of challenges, from shrinking margins to increasing regulation to rapidly evolving technologies. Information is more accessible, products are more commoditized, and competitors are less distinctive. Doing business is getting more and more complex. Some say these are unprecedented times, and while we agree that times are tough, we think the biggest challenge businesses face today is a leadership gap.
The purpose of “Collaborative Leadership” is to call that leadership gap to attention, show how it may have formed, make clear the gravity of its implications, and provide a means to bridge the gap. The ultimate goal of this book is to show leaders how to bridge the leadership gap through collaborative leadership transformation. This book is about more than creating transformation through leadership. It’s about creating transformation through collaboration.
