Leading in Times of Crisis

Dotlich, Cairo, and Rhinesmith propose that during challenging times, being a leader requires more from an individual than the one-dimensional models that many authors suggest. Instead, they propose a "whole leadership" model, which allows leaders to act in was that rethink the way that the business operates, particularly when it is challenged, connect with stakeholders, whether customers, employees, or other with interests in your buiness, and to live according to your own values. This book is a follow-up to the authors' earlier work, Head, Heart and Guts, which first defines the whole leadership model and suggests that leaders should trust their instincts--all of them--to lead them toward success.
