Confronting the Storm: Regenerating Leadership and Hope in the Age of Uncertainty by David Ross
“In Confronting the Storm, David passionately argues for a shift from the predominant legacy thinking that struggles with our greatest challenges to a regenerative and collaborative mindset within leaders. Humanity is at a fork in the road so new, creative, and urgent leadership is essential. For us all and future generations to be able to thrive on Spaceship Earth, this book makes for compelling reading.” –David Houle, MD, The Sarasota Institute and 5x TEDx speaker, US
Traditional leadership wisdom is buckling and failing.
Leaders are not only grappling with the pandemic, but a greater challenge awaits them – a storm of complex social, environmental, and economic issues that is leaving organizations extremely vulnerable.
As daunting as it may feel, there are substantial opportunities to thrive.
David provocatively argues that, to successfully deal with the storm, we must accept that the leadership styles that have been celebrated for centuries are now an obstacle to progress. He explores the storm-defying alternatives: key skills and traits that are now crucial for regenerating lives, livelihoods, and the planet, pointing the way to a more collaborative, innovative, successful future for leaders and organizations.
This argument is amplified by some of the most inspiring global leaders who are successfully confronting the storm – including a former Prime Minister, former Foreign Minister, one of Fortune magazines ‘50 Greatest Leaders’, and more.
What will your legacy be?
Artisan Book Reviews:
Confronting the Storm by David Ross is a well-researched and referenced book about the complex social, environmental, and economic challenges leaderships face today. This book will guide you in the development of your organization and remove your blinders for recognizing the new optimal opportunities and allow you the foresight to embrace the necessary, vital and attainable changes.
In his well-written, proficient and inventive guide book David Ross notes, that although leaders may long for what seemingly served well for generations past, isn’t working anymore and what has been normal is gone and isn’t coming back. By continuing to follow patterns from the past, it has exposed us to a deeply complex and growing storm of a higher level of increased wicked social, economic and environmental issues. Ross perceptively states; “And our world has entered an age of uncertainty, an age that is, and will continue to be, increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. This period of VUCA already has many leaders lying awake at night. I couldn’t put this book down because I believe that we all feel the effects of bad leadership and sense this age of VUCA.
However – there is hope. David Ross has written a brilliant book with a brilliant workable strategy for lasting change within our society, organizations and leaderships.
David Ross received many firsthand insights and authentic true stories from many of the most senior leaders across the globe, which provided the framework for regenerating lives, livelihoods, and the planet. The look and functionality of David’s diagrams for change are practical, achievable and intelligent –both emotionally intelligent as well as intellectually. I was able to look at the diagrams and quickly see and understand them.
When the storm surge arrives, you will be ready to confront the issues of our evolving society on a personal, collaborative and professional level. As an added bonus, the reflections section at the end of each chapter will open your eyes to the paradigm shift taking place in present-day leadership models.
With over thirty years of observing leadership skills, Ross has set the mark for confronting the issues of our global society. The key skills and behaviors within a collaborative form of leadership will regenerate hope in this age of uncertainty. This book will trigger reflection and allow us to rethink how we see ourselves and how we see, interact and work with others. This is a must read book for all leaders, organizations and one and all. 5 Stars – Confronting the Storm by David Ross comes highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.
