Details: Product Description
Real connections within teams can create a culture shift for an entire company. Leading Below the Surface illustrates this vision, taking a
radical stance against the “surface-ness” of corporate culture and exploring how highly rewarded behaviors are actually destroying organizations,
blocking us all from creating truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive cultures of belonging.
This book is not a step-by-step instructional guide or dry academic theory. With a foreword by
Amy Edmondson, author and Novartis Professor of Leadership at Harvard Business School, this book is inspired by organizational culture research, social psychology and neuroscience frameworks.
Leading Below the Surface is a compass for the purpose-driven and forward-thinking leader. It merges true stories from the lived experiences of culture leader LaTonya Wilkins with actionable insights backed by dynamic interdisciplinary research. Just like she has done for hundreds of coaching and organizational clients, LaTonya effectively coaches you through this transformation through each engaging chapter.
Leading Below the Surface disrupts the way we think about traditional leadership standards and the diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that have failed to make lasting change. The wisdom in these pages is powerful enough to not only change the way we think about corporate culture, but will instantly activate opportunities for the individual looking to advance their career while remaining authentic to who they are.
