Overview

Steering an organisation on its unique growth journey is one of the biggest personal challenges facing all leaders. Although the end goal, the destination may stay the same, the conditions experienced on the journey will be different within six months, and different again within a year.

Why? Because internal and external issues and events will constantly change the commercial landscape in which the organisation operates in.

Navigating the landscape has become the new core requirement of the 21st century leader. To deliver success, a more flexible, adaptable leadership approach is needed to keep everyone connected with the organisation on track - a framework that adapts to changing conditions on the journey.

Building the Pyramid demonstrates the winning (formula)® framework in action, through the use of a simple story set in ancient Egypt. It is an original interpretation of the challenges facing leaders and how success can be achieved.

Great leaders are great storytellers and the storytelling format has been cleverly used to describe the growth journey and the important lessons all leaders should learn.

The pyramid is used as a metaphor for growth and the direct correlation between the Pharaoh and the modern-day leader's journey are powerfully communicated.

Lessons learned on the Pharaoh's journey including how to:
- Attract, recruit and retain talent
- Lead the 'change' required to deliver success
- Harness the power of vision and values
- Increase levels of engagement across the organisation
- Build a positive workplace culture
- Align strategy to operational performance
- Inspire others to maximise their potential

The book also includes practical checklists, development models, journey maps and other useful tips and pieces of advice.

More importantly, Building the Pyramid demonstrates how to successfully navigate colleagues on the journey towards the creation of a more agile, successful and sustainable organisation.
