Agile Leadership for turbulent times; Learning to ride the waves of disruption

What does agile leadership mean? And what do leaders need to be able to thrive in disruptive times? How can we ‘ride the waves’, to take energy and opportunity from them, rather than fighting them, feeling frustrated and possibly exhausted

These are some of the key questions we answer in our new eBook ‘Agile Leadership for Turbulent Times’ written by our expert faculty Sharon Olivier, Frederick Hölscher and Collin Williams.
