With Igniting Purpose-Driven Leadership, Jim Nevada explores the dynamic and ever-changing environment in which all organizations operate in our global economy, and how 21st Century leadership requires a new toolkit to thrive in a highly-fluid and rapidly-evolving world.
Nevada chronicles the economic eras that have changed the landscape of mankind and how our current era, what he refers to as the "Era of Human Capital", compels leaders to shift from a scarcity mentality toward human capital (people) to one of abundance. He not only vividly explains why we need to make the shift to abundance, but also provides straightforward insights on how to make the shift in this new era.
Drawing on decades of executive experience in both large, publicly-traded and privately-held businesses, as well as through his coaching and consulting practice, Nevada reveals the secrets to why purpose-driven leaders have been so successful, and how they operate from a new perspective; one that is focused on the long-term needs of all stakeholders rather than the results-oriented myopia that grips so many leaders today.
Through a series of stories on some of the most enduring companies in history and a profile of various leadership disciplines, Nevada provides readers with clear and thorough approaches to increase the energy and engagement of employees through authentic leadership and to enhance the creativity levels throughout their respective organizations.
