Sadly some aspiring leaders do just that and then wonder why a bland universal recipe is not working. Other leaders believe that they have some special powers, often bestowed at an early age, and that others should just follow them and do what they say. They may have some advantages (such as being taller than the majority) that give them licence to believe they are superior beings or just enormous self-belief. Yet others end up in leadership roles because they network and are on headhunters lists and move before the effects of their leadership decisions can be evaluated. So whilst they have a string of fancy job titles, are they really good leaders of people and organizations? Are they effective as leaders or just as managers of their own careers? (Indeed later in the book, the author laments the dearth of good leaders for today and the future.)
This book takes a very different approach. It situates the leader within culture, connections, customers and organizational type. It suggests that past experiences, while useful to draw on, may not be the same as the challenges for the organization of the future. It invites the leader to examine his or her qualities and measure them against those expectations.
Reporting on findings from interviews that highlight what works effectively and drawing on earlier works, the author integrates these insights into a book that invites self reflection and self coaching, drawing out latent leadership capabilities to enable the reader to become the leader of themselves and then others and offering pointers to the qualities required for leaders today and in the future. It is accessible to everyone, not stuffed with theory or pushing a particular commercialised framework. Leaderology, the book title, is defined as more than just leadership.
I have coached leaders of large organizations. Some have the skills and qualities in this book "in spades" and it is easy to see why they are CEOs and why their employees follow them and hold them in affection. Other sadly will just never get there and need to settle for other triumphs. Some can and do make the transition and learn from previous mistakes and become very effective leaders - practitioners of the leaderology mentioned here.
This is an overwhelmingly up beat book as many coaching texts are - but what isn't discussed here is loneliness of the leader when difficult decisions need to be taken, or when the call is the wrong one.
Page 221 (Chapter 11) debates lessons learned about leadership and reflects a number of the fashionable ideas of the moment - servant leadership, not least, so this is not rooted in past leadership fashions (though some historically important military leaders are mentioned in early chapters !).
It is an easy read, accessible and not expensive - try it and see if it makes you think about your own leadership, even if that's on a small scale. It could change your thinking and your future plans!
In my opinion, Leaderology is a very important business book. It helps to elevate the leadership competencies, treat problems that distance a business from customers, create a productive culture, and reveal the full potentials of your company. Using a biological analogy, Konovalov offers well-illustrated answers to the most compelling needs and pain points of the modern leaders’ needs.
I was emotionally attached to the book from the very first pages where the author starts with the letter to himself. The style kept me engaged until the last page with a very positive ending. The book is well-structured around four cores of any business – customer, organisation, culture and leadership, with the very logical and elevating shift to leaderology as a new form of leading people. Every page has something to take note of and apply in practice straight away.
The book is full of powerful concepts that will change you as a leader. Read it slowly immersing in advanced thinking and prepare for exploring a lot of new things. Leaderology will change your understanding of management and leadership.
Dr. Konovalov takes many of the best lessons of Peter Drucker on how the leaders of any organization need to be able to engage with those under then, taking their concerns and suggestions seriously and applies them to the digital age. This new age requires leaders not only to be logical, competent, and caring but flexible as well. The modern leader has to be willing to change with an anticipate the market.
If you are an aspiring or struggling leader and need to develop your skill, Leaderology is a great place to start.
The book defines and discusses the requirements of modern leadership and the evolution to a higher form of it, while supporting every idea with practical suggestions and comments. A discussion of vision caught my particular attention as vision as a construct and its core criteria were never been discussed before. “Vision is a divine gift entrusted to those who will use it to empower others. Vision is a concentration of desires, dreams, potentials, and possibilities. A vision pushes people not just to do more but to do more than they think they are capable of.”
Taking a ground of the present state of management and leadership, Oleg Konovalov points out ‘Making new mistakes in the new future is normal. What is not normal is to take old mistakes into the future’ and show how to avoid those mistakes in the future.
My highest recommendations for this invaluable book!
