Brief book outline
There are four key leadership styles that taken together dictate what stage in the Predictable Success lifecycle any organization will be at any one time.
Three of the leadership styles – the Visionary, the Operator and the Processor are each highly agenda-driven, and left to operate on their own will produce an unstable business that cannot attain Predictable Success.
Only one leadership style – the fourth, the Synergist – transcends individual agendas, and possesses the skills and vocabulary needed to harness the other three styles to take the organization into Predictable Success and keep it there.
Part 1 of the new book describes each of the four leadership styles and illustrates how and why they best work together (and when and why they don’t).
The specific attitudes, skills, strengths and weaknesses of each style is described (using personal stories as in the first book), and tips and techniques are given to help the reader both identify their own leadership style and learn how to work optimally with the other three leadership styles. (An online assessment is available to help identify your own leadership style.)
Part 2 focusses on the crucial Synergist style and explains how a Visionary, Processor or Operator can transcend their own natural style to become a Synergist.
