SIMPLIFIED is about getting back to the basics of what leadership is all about...people. It is time for leadership to pivot. It is time to lead different. It is time for purpose-driven leadership. This book is a voice and vehicle for change. Built on a core belief that leadership is simple, you lead people.
We are in the most disruptive time in our lives, where uncertainty has become the new normal. The rate of change in technology, business and the generations are unprecedented. Now, more than ever before, leadership is thrust into the forefront. Leadership will be required for us to successfully navigate these times in political, spiritual and organizational realms around the globe. Yet, we are also at the tipping point for traditional leadership styles and practices. Leadership itself is in crisis mode. It is broken. We are spending billions of dollars annually to improve it, why then is employee disengagement on the rise around the world?
SIMPLIFIED is more than a book, it is a tool and guide for a movement to create and inspire purpose-driven leaders. Built on a belief that together, we can positively shift the consciousness of the planet. www.leadershipissimple.com

Whether you are an aspirant leader, an experienced mid-level manager or even an executive, simplified will "stop you in your tracks," and compel you to reflect on all aspects of your ongoing development, as a leader. Simplified will break down the barriers and remove the obstacles that you have had in your journey to becoming a purposeful leader.

So many people are doing what they are doing without really understanding why they are doing it. Without any real purpose, conviction, belief, care or passion. Just putting in their time. People need to clarify and understand exactly what it is they are doing and WHY they are doing it! Dave Clare communicates the 'SIMPLIFIED' message that helps everyone to understand HOW they can lead themselves and others to a more purpose-driven life. How to drill down to what really matters and then take action to ensure that it will be realized. Then they will be doing what truly brings value and purpose for a fulfilled life.

As a practitioner, Dave actually lives what he talks and writes about. I was so drawn to the book not by just the message, but the ease with which I can take the message away. The well-crafted use of diagrams, models, bold text and powerful quotes that are relevant and resonate so strongly with me add to the simplicity. I can read the book from beginning to end or pick it up, read 2-3 pages, and take something meaningful away and implement. Many leadership books focus on why, this one gives you the how to. Unlike many other authors who like to complicate, a major strength of Dave's book is in his ability to simplify.
