The business community needs a good “kick in the ass” and this book is designed to do just that. It offers practical suggestions and a broadly based plan to help business leaders come to grips with the fact that the leaders we need for the future must be transformational and equipped with a much different set of competencies as well as a thirst for competition on the world stage.
Business leaders and politicians have notoriously short and convenient memories. Each time we hit a predictable cyclical economic downturn, we endlessly debate the reasons, are quick to point the finger of blame and then conveniently use the excuse of external market forces as a means to justify our short-sighted overreaction. This recurring pattern of behaviour does no more than reveal the inherent weaknesses in our leadership acumen, and yet we allow the pattern to continue rather than learn, adjust and compensate accordingly.
We need to find the courage and conviction to transform our economy, through the restructuring of our historical business models and the rapid development of a new generation of leaders equipped to compete with a modern set of leadership competencies. These competencies of the future, and the mindset of global competitiveness, will allow us to remain relevant in the long term, rather than sheltered behind the short-sighted naiveté and complacency which have lured us into believing we are doing better than we really are.
