Ebooks: A Framework for Leading in Today’s World

To thrive in a world where change is the only constant, leaders need to replace old thinking with a new framework.

In these times of accelerating change, it’s no longer enough to be an exceptional leader. You must be an exponential leader. Such leaders use the skills and behaviors of futurists, innovators, and technologists to improve the lives of the people they touch, and society as a whole. They also act as impact drivers to think beyond the needs of their own organizations.

In A Framework for Leading in Today’s World, we offer a comprehensive examination of Singularity University’s exponential leadership framework and share the critical skills leaders must learn to become exponential leaders who can successfully navigate a rapidly changing world. You’ll discover the skillset, toolset, and mindset required to inspire and empower both the individual and the organization to adapt and evolve.

In addition to presenting the four pillars of exponential leadership, we also look at real-world examples of exponential leaders in action, examine how they’re impacting change at their organizations and for the betterment of our world, and provide actions you can take today to start leading exponentially.
