One of our founders, Mark Poppenborg, recently penned his first book – only to have it stand at the top of Amazon’s list in the category “Change Management” for several weeks.
In the intrinsify blog, Mark Poppenborg reveals his ideas about how to do more real work and less pointless activity. The book is a collection of his best contributions from the recent past. And because he has always striven to improve his thoughts and insights into how best to lead a company, he decided to revise and update some of his texts for this volume.
24½ Liberating Impulses for Entrepreneurs and Managers
More freedom, more meaningful activities, more effectiveness in the workplace – that is what is needed, not management 101 and ludicrous routine work. That is the true nature of Future Leadership.
That’s what the New Economy looks like – and it’s apparently something people are yearning for. Its main pledge? You will achieve more! And yet the path toward realization can be rocky. The solution: “We Lead Differently!” In his new volume, Mark Poppenborg demonstrates what it means to think differently and furnishes the reader interested in effective leadership with a multitude of practical impulses – off the beaten path, open to new horizons, sound, sensible and wise.
New Freedoms for a New Leadership
Modern means of leadership and organizational development bear little resemblance to your grandfather’s approach. Nevertheless, many well-meaning attempts fail to actually function as intended. Mark Poppenborg questions every leadership instrument and organizational scheme ever invented, both the “usual suspects” as well as those hyped under the buzzword “New Work.” What emerged from this process is his vision of Future Leadership.
The goal is to empower readers to get a new slant on their own companies.
