Overview

"Organizations evolve through identifiable lifestages, and each lifestage requires a very different leadership role if the organization is to be, and remain, successful. The Leadership Lifecycle presents a framework that enables you to diagnose the lifestage of the organization and know the appropriate leadership role for the organization.

Overview

"Organizations evolve through identifiable lifestages, and each lifestage requires a very different leadership role if the organization is to be, and remain, successful. The Leadership Lifecycle presents a framework that enables you to diagnose the lifestage of the organization and know the appropriate leadership role for the organization. As organizations evolve from one lifestage to the next, the leader is often reluctant or unable to shift roles to match the new lifestage. This causes decline or failure as the foundations of past success are no longer appropriate for the present and it often results in a search for new leadership." Brought alive with compelling illustrations from corporations and non-profit organizations of all sizes, and in-depth analyses of two iconic organizations, The Walt Disney Company and Marks & Spencer, The Leadership Lifecycle describes in rich detail how organizations evolve and their leadership needs change as the organization changes. For organizations and leaders alike, it is essential that they can identify the lifestage the organization is in and when it is undergoing a transition to a new lifestage in order to change the leadership role and avoid decline. As such, The Leadership Lifecycle provides an essential roadmap for all those in leadership roles at all levels of their organizations.
