The key variable that accounts for the success of any Organisation is the degree to which it’s members commit to the objectives of the Organisation, pursue them because they want to rather than because they have to and are willing to commit discretionary effort toward their achievement. This book explores what sort of leadership creates these conditions, that not only focuses on personal excellence, but also on mobilising others.

Product Description

The key variable that accounts for the success of any Organisation is the degree to which it’s members commit to the objectives of the Organisation, pursue them because they want to rather than because they have to and are willing to commit discretionary effort toward their achievement. This book explores what sort of leadership creates these conditions, that not only focuses on personal excellence, but also on mobilising others.

This book looks at the traditional trade-off between the boss who supplies the wages and the workers who supply the labour, and explains how destructive and unproductive this is. There is a need to move beyond this towards a view of leadership that empowers all subordinates and encourages an unconditional commitment to excellence. Leadership is not a case of looking after the interest of the shareholders. It is a case of empowering and growing subordinates, the interest of the shareholders will flourish accordingly.

Developed from the authors ground-breaking work dealing with conflict resolution and insights from his basic research ‘The Care and Growth’ Leadership Model has now become a successful system tested and applied in a variety of industries such as manufacturing, IT, hospitality, financial services and agriculture, in a total of 15 countries, over 4 continents.

    :

    The power of this theory lies in its authenticity. This is not just another guideline or inspirational book – it speaks to the fundamental value system of a leader. I support Volker Hoogberg’s view that: ‘The insights that Etsko so ably articulates in this book are fresh, basic and consistently helpful to all those who reflect on what they can do for others’.

    In identifying the traits of a leader, Etsko has redefined leadership: it is not about power structures or privilege or advantage; rather, it is natural leadership, concerned with authentic personal traits which gain natural recognition amongst fellow humans. Another theme in the book fundamentally re-imagines organizations for a world where ecological realities are honoured. Etsko, a social anthropologist, visualizes organizations as living, organic structures — a view that is now widely confirmed. Not enough literature is available on this emerging field. This is what makes LEADERSHIP an exceptionally valuable read for those seeking a framework to organize in an interconnected, fairer, and — as they say — a ‘post-catastrophic’ world.

    :

    A wake up call for managers who would strive to be leaders. Etsko Schuitema transforms the words ‘power’ and ‘empowerment’ into living, breathing ways of human interaction. Authentic leaders earn respect of others , rather than demanding it. This book illustrates the authentic, timeless Care and Growth Model.

    This book makes a complex topic simple. It creates a clear and easy to understand set of criteria for leaders to aspire to and practise. It answers the questions every leader is faced with and provides practical insights and tools.
