Adapt Grow Achieve: Equipping Yourself for the Challenges of Leadership

The world needs better leaders – and we want you to be one of them. In this short, practical book, authors Neill Thew and Trevor Cousins share their three step process for helping leaders become more effective at achieving positive change.

There are two different kinds of leadership challenges.

The outer challenge is to become highly skilled and effective at leading. Effective leadership is the work of mobilising people to make progress on their toughest challenges. This work requires us to enable people to adapt to new situations and develop significant new capacities.

The inner challenge is to develop and adapt ourselves. Our challenge is to grow our personal capacity to meet the demands of leadership.

The Adapt, Grow, Achieve approach uniquely pays equal attention to both the outer and the inner work. Our approach draws both on our own experience, and on the best-evidenced theory and practice drawn from the fields of leadership, coaching, adult development and learning.

To help equip you to face the challenges of your leadership, this e-book is filled with immediately applicable strategies and tools and illustrated with examples of real-world leadership success.
