No Cape Required: Empowering Abundant Leadership


No Cape Required sets out a vision for a new approach to leadership and emphasizes the need to develop both the individual and the organizational environment within which people are expected to lead and succeed. This book illumines the path toward taking charge of leadership development and influencing the organization to be well prepared for the abundant leadership revolution.
Readers will learn how costly the dominant hero-leader paradigm is and why it’s vital, in today’s “VUCA World” of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, to develop a new and more relevant approach to leadership and leadership development.
This book offers managers insight into the behaviors and skills needed to deliver, along with the engaging styles available to build more successful teams and experience better relationships with colleagues. This book addresses equality through its message of abundant leadership; not emphasizing one group over another, but pointing out the need to unlock the talents and potential of everyone in the organization.
