Les' new book, Do Lead, will be out Spring 2014! longdesc=
A little over two years ago, Les spoke at the Do Lectures in Wales. (Watch his talk here.)
These lectures bring together an eclectic group in a unique environment to share ideas, experiences, and ultimately inspire each other to “do” innovative things. Les found the experience to be so valuable that he had to interview founder David Hieatt about them.
The Do Lectures have also sparked a book series, and we’re excited to announce that Les has just been invited and happily agreed to contribute! Published by The Do Book Co., this new release will be entitled Do Lead.
In it, Les will examine how leadership is different from power and reveal how it’s possible to lead anyone, anytime, anywhere… even when you’re not in charge. Do Lead will be coming out in Spring 2014. Stay tuned for details!
Lastly, wondering how you can do more of the work you want to, the work that you really care about? Michael Bungay Stanier has put together an amazing virtual event to help you achieve just that. Check out the details below!
