Using leadership to generate greater innovation, connectivity, and organizational transformation is crucial for success in this challenging era. The authors present here a new approach to leadership based on findings from complexity science. Integrating real case studies with rigorous research results, they explore the biggest challenges being faced in fast-paced organizations, and provide a host of concrete tools for leading during critical periods, catalyzing novelty, expanding networks, and generating transformative change throughout an organization. “This wonderfully useful book integrates the best thinking in the fields of complexity science, leadership, and innovation. The result is a useful and practical guide to using key complexity concepts to understand and enact leadership in a way that facilitates continuous innovation.” “For the lifelong student and (hopefully successful) practitioner of leadership, the authors greatly enriched my understanding of leadership and break new, exciting ground. ” “The authors have stepped out of conventional management studies to synthesize ideas from the sciences of ecology and mathematics to articulate a new view of management and complexity. This is a well-timed analysis of how leaders can leverage networks, not in a superficial manner, but in concrete terms, to increase the velocity of innovation in their organizations.” “In this scholarly treatise the authors create a compelling argument that there is a new science of leadership. This book is for the serious reader who believes that you can apply generative leadership to your organization and win. Use your time well and read this book!”
