A framework for developing agility and competitiveness in today's unpredictable business environment.
Does your leadership pass the people test?

To win in an increasingly dynamic, ambiguous, and volatile environment, leadership teams in most industries must be agile - able to react flexibly to early signs and act on them quickly. The only thing we truly know about the future is that it will be different. We need to build organizations that can cope with these challenges rather than embarking on disruptive change processes. To do this, leaders face the dilemma of empowering people without losing control.

This book will force you to reexamine the many assumptions underlying your  leadership style and practice and will analyze how your organization can develop  agility through a people-centric approach. The author's many insights will help  you to understand your options and make the necessary choices to coach your  team successfully. (You can start creating agility as a competitive advantage today, with the ten-question test and observation points in the book)

Building on his experience of delivering many executive leadership programmes around the world, and from teaching and advising many business leaders, Lukas Michel provides a concise and practical guide for organization leaders of all kinds. The Performance Triangle contains practical guidance on designing 30 essential practices that leaders must get right in order to remain flexible and fast in adapting to an ever-changing environment.

Target Audience:
It is suitable for management professionals and business leaders who want to empower people without losing control.
