Leaders who last
I am enjoying Leaders who last by Dave Kraft.
"Here are some obvious contrasts in the way we need to lead today in contrast to the ways we've led in the past.
Past Leaders Future Leaders
Operate in committees Operate in teams
Command and control Permission-giving
Degreed and elected Gifted and called
Linear and pyramidal Over-lapping circles
Share propositional truth Tell stories
People of the written page People of the screen
Tightly structured Highly flexible
Emphasise position Emphasise empowerment
