"Encouragement, empowerment and compliments are the basis for successful self-leadership and for leading others successfully."
Today and tomorrow we live in times of change and turbulence. Nothing is safe and secure anymore. We have to look for a new understanding of what spacetime and time as such are all about. Organizations are deeply affected either. They are confronted with challenges on a daily basis. Flat hierarchies, softened structures and virtual teams shape an organization’s framework of action. Additionally, decisions often have to be done in a staccato manner embedded in a very complex environment. Finally, the leaderless public and media permanently request transparency. Leadership has become the buzz word of our times – management is not enough anymore – despite its importance. New combinations of capabilities are on top of the agenda. They form the basis for successful self-leadership and for leading others. QuantumLeadership. Encountering the Other proposes a way to cope with changed big and small situations, thereby still enjoying the moment – if you would like to do so. It is a fairy tale for grown-ups, who are interested in self-leadership and in leading others in an adequate way. It is a GPS through turbulent times. The book shows ways to consequently act target-oriented; it opens up options to view new perspectives for oneself and for others. Based on the leitmotif “Encouragement, empowerment and compliments are the basis for successful self-leadership and for leading others successfully” a number of basic principles, individual-level based guidelines and team-oriented recommendations are presented in a general way. Additionally, numerous examples from politics, economics, art, sports and the individual realm show the applicability of those principles, guidelines and recommendations.
