Having had some previous contact with the author, Sebastian Salicru, I was delighted to be given early sight of his new leadership book, which is sub-titled “how to create adaptive leaders and high-performing organisations for an uncertain world”. He is, after all, a highly-experienced business practitioner and thought leader. He acknowledges the significant importance of effective leadership at a time of uncertainty and turbulence for people in organisations and in positions of authority. This book offers a good explanation of this and a number of personal strategies for adapting to the new reality. For some, it may be a slightly uncomfortable read: for many, it will be enlightening and thought-provoking.
