Leadership is an essential requirement to face our daily challenges, to help companies keep up, adapt, or, best yet, move ahead of other organizations. We need more leaders to help governments and businesses handle all the changes required to best serve customers, employees, owners, and society. We cannot afford to restrict leadership just to the top management positions and every employee should ideally rise in to a leadership role. Open Source Leadership will make you think what possibilities and benefits can exist if more opportunities are opened up to develop the leadership potential throughout our organisations. It will make you think what would happen, if you truly empowered all the people below you in your workplace. This book will help you think about the future and inspire you to make changes. This is the future of leadership. Printed Pages: 1. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 4425

Inhaltsangabe: An evolutionary change in the world of leadership has arrived. And it is OPEN

In this era of increasing complexities, leadership is evolving faster than ever before. More forward-looking organizations are moving away from the traditional closed forms towards an Open Source Leader model, where people are nurtured across layers by opening unto them the power and authority associated with leadership - very similar to the model followed by the Open Source Software Movement. If organizations and leaders do not keep up with this evolution, they will be left in the lurch. But if they manage to keep pace, they will live another day, to tell the tale of their success.

Open Source Leader tells the story of such organizations that have managed to evolve ahead of their contemporaries. Sangeeth Varghese has woven together eight defining attributes that are most commonly observed in such organizations, helping them survive and thrive during the most challenging of times. In this book, entities as diverse as the Indian national cricket team, Wikipedia, BCG Consulting and the Art of Living reveal their most closely held secrets of success. It draws together the wisdom gleaned from some of the greatest thought-leaders across the world, as well as from multiple disciplines.

Open Source Leader will keep you ahead of the evolutionary curve, irrespective of whether you are leading a Fortune 500 corporation, a start-up or a government institution. It will help you understand the future of leadership. Most importantly, it will help you keep your mind as well as your organization fertile enough to nurture leaders across layers. Those who embrace Open Source leadership are not only the winners of today, but the survivors of tomorrow.

From the Author: "Interestingly, it was not the connection between open source and leadership that first I came up with but it was the evolution of organisations and leadership as such. As I delved in to the different sociological set ups and how they have evolved through time, I came to the conclusion that, though almost all the set ups started as authoritarian and closed ones, with the passage of time, they evolved towards open ones. For example, nation states in to democracies or families in to egalitarian ones. This evolution, like in the case of organisms is a natural progression -- to withstand the internal and external pressures, competition etc.

For an organisation the most conductive one for survival is an open one; incidentally resembling an Open Source Software Movement in structure and functioning. If we look closely at the Open Source Software Movement, we see that they are at the highest end of organisational evolution not because it sounds politically right, but because it helps them tide over the internal as well as the external pressures. For example, in the case of a close ended organisation, the decisions are almost always taken by one or a handful of people; reflecting only their view points and hence tend to be at extremes, without reflecting the opinions of the majority. It also takes efforts -- in normal organisations either punishment or heavy incentives -- to make sure that the people at the shop floor and on the ground are implementing these decisions in letter and in spirit -- because it does not reflect what they believe is right.

Open source overcomes a lot of these limitations of the closed and authoritative one. And hence, the movement that has started in software would spread to other parts and realms of the society." Sangeeth Varghese
