There is a time in any successful executive’s career when they face a leadership challenge that is different in some fundamental way from anything they have faced before. The priorities of the new role are different, and the leadership approach that has been so successful for them in the past isn’t always appropriate in their new environment. Leaders feel as if the ground is shifting beneath their feet. They begin to question their most deeply held convictions.
Leadership Shock looks at this under-examined issue and draws on Peter’s many years of experience as an elite sports coach and a leadership mentor. The book uses his unique Authentic Leadership Model to help leaders arrive at a deeper understanding of their leadership vision and personal strengths and create a set of fundamental principles that will steer them through the current challenge – and every future leadership challenge.
The book contains detailed case studies from leading business figures who talk about their experience of working with Pete to develop their own Authentic Leadership Model.
