Creating Leadership: How to Change Hippos Into Gazelles


This informative and inspirational handbook describes how to successfully lead mergers and change in complex organizations. Drawing on a real-life experience, the authors share their insights on how leaders can deliver sustainable change by growing the capacity of everyone within an organization to deliver performance gains, behave like a leader, and encourage leadership in others.
It is a book by practitioners for practitioners telling the real- life story of a leader and a facilitator working together in the complex reality of a multinational organization. It deepens this insight by drawing on a wealth of wider research by academics and leadership practitioners. Here you will find immediately useable tools, easy to relate to real-life examples, and a little bit of magic in the form of a fable that will sustain you and your colleagues through the twists and turns of what is certain to become an intensely human journey.
