Organizational resilience and adaptability have never been more important; however, few leaders are truly prepared to lead through crisis.
Rise Up: Leadership Habits for Turbulent Times is a call to action for leaders to accept that many of their habits diminish the resilience of their organizations and to commit to a plan that will reposition them as twenty-first-century leaders.
In this engaging and thought-provoking guide, authors Ali Grovue and Mike Watson present six distinct yet deeply interconnected habits that all leaders must adopt: Trust, Inquisitiveness, Humility, Optimism, Courage, and Discipline. Embracing these habits will help create a high-functioning culture where employees feel enabled to be the best versions of themselves in pursuit of a common, noble goal. The habits are also foundational to a transformative and enduring strategy, one that is developed and owned not by the leader, but by everyone within the organization.
Brought to life through real-life examples taken from Grovue and Watson's work as strategic leadership advisers in business and sport, and combined with intelligence from academic and psychological research, Rise Up provides leaders with a clear, insightful, and actionable path to building organizations that can adapt—and even thrive—despite hard times.
