Innovative Leadership Fieldbook

by Maureen Metcalf, Mark Palmer

Book Cover: Innovative Leadership Fieldbook

Innovative Leadership Fieldbook was named Best Business Reference Book in the 2012 International Book Awards. The book was also a finalist in the overall Business E-book category.

Leadership plays a critical role in a company’s long-term success and innovation has become a strategic necessity in today’s business environment. This fieldbook is fundamentally about leadership yet equally an account of innovation. You see, leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership, and by marrying them we can improve our capacity for growth. But most importantly, any meaningful advancement concerning both must first originate from you.  In other words, becoming a better leader and optimizing innovation jointly hinge on you authentically examining your inner makeup.  Innovative Leadership Fieldbook explores a number of approaches to enact both fields, not just conceptually, but tangibly through your own personal experience.
