'Its no longer enough, when leading in a complex, connected and fast changing world, to read about how others have lead and changed organisations in the past - even the recent past. This is the first leadership book that offers leaders real tools to help them understand how people think and real methods to change that thinking.

'This book contributes an interesting and valuable perspective on how we think and how that insight can benefit anyone adopting a leading role. Potentially it has far-reaching appeal and I would recommend it to anyone aspiring to improve their self-awareness, and general communication, meeting and change management skills.'
