Written by Joe Britto, The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset: Flexibility of mind, mindfulness, resilience, genuine curiosity, creating leaders, enterprise thinking carefully examines the six key attributes that make up a leadership mindset, and explores in detail how you can grow them for yourself.
Foreword by Gill White.
We can find a different way of leading by developing a different way of thinking. And the first step in growing a leadership mindset is taking responsibility for making that shift happen.
In this insightful handbook, Joe Britto shines a spotlight on the qualities and behaviours that embody a leadership mindset and inspires leaders to step out of their comfort zone as they take on the challenges faced by their teams and organizations.
With the help of engaging stories, practical challenges, and an acute sense of humour, Joe guides you through six key attributes of leadership – flexibility of mind, mindfulness, resilience, genuine curiosity, creating leaders, and enterprise thinking – and explores how you can bring them to life both within and beyond the workplace.
Joe does this by breaking down what the six attributes are and how they work, and by considering and suggesting ways around the barriers we may inadvertently put up that inhibit the development of our leadership capacities. From there he delves into the behaviours of each attribute – for example, asking “What if?” and demonstrating generosity of spirit under the attribute of genuine curiosity – and presents a range of exercises you can use in order to cultivate them.
In doing so, he reveals the real gift of a leadership mindset: that as we grow our mindset and develop positive behaviours, we can lead ourselves and our teams to better outcomes and nurture the leadership capacities of others.
Suitable for both established and emerging leaders.
