8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility: How to Lead and Inspire in the Real World
How can you become a leader in a world that is constantly changing? How can you become not just a good leader, but a great one? Yeo Chuen Chuen shares how her powerful Re4 coaching model can help you accomplish this in her book 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility. We cannot stop the world from changing, so we must adapt and Yeo Chuen Chuen provides leadership guidance that will help you adapt and overcome any obstacle.
The keyword I picked up with this book is ‘agile’. How can leaders be agile? It starts with a mindset. But saying and doing are two different things and I think this is where 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility sets itself apart from other self/professional development books. The Re4 Coaching Model is plainly demonstrated in a way that helps you see the world through an unbiased lens. At the end of this practical leadership guide I felt that I understood why I needed to change, but much more importantly, I understood how to make the change happen. This is accomplished by the sharing of thought-provoking and diverse stories of leaders who faced similar challenges. I also appreciated the coaching exercises that are provided because they help reinforce what was learned and challenge you to think critically.
It could be Yeo Chuen Chuen’s proprietary coaching method, or it could be the pragmatic and approachable way that the information is laid out, but in either case I found the Re4 coaching model to be beneficial. But I will stress that you must have a willingness to embrace change as this method does encourage leaders to be agile in practice and in mindset.
If you have struggled with other leadership models, haven’t used one before, or are looking for a new one that is on the cutting edge, then I think you will find 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility fits your needs perfectly.
