The world of work is transforming at an unrelenting pace. Product development is increasingly more complex and uncertain while the speed of decisions and delivery is escalating at an exponential pace. Many of us are unaware of how our thoughts and actions work against our own objectives and our organizations’ goals and needs. Pete Behrens illustrates how leadership agility improves self-awareness, amplifies decision-making, improves outcomes, and grows resilience and capacity in highly complex and fast-paced environments. Sharing stories from his two decades of personal experience—and experiences of other senior leaders whom he has coached—Pete spotlights six critical mistakes you may not be aware you’re making in your personal leadership practices. He recommends that you focus on yourself before others, develop self-awareness before skills, experiment before delivering, establish structures ahead of behaviors, prioritize health over performance, and emphasize the journey over the destination. Whether you’re a manager or an individual contributor, you’ll discover how to reorient your thinking and actions to improve your style and outcomes to become a better leader—and a better person.
