The Leadership Riptide and How to Escape

11 EPISODES |  Series, ±16 min episode total time 3 hr 01 min
What does leadership have to do with a riptide? Being caught in a riptide means thrashing around, expending energy and effort – ending up no closer to the shoreline.

To escape a riptide, you need to swim differently! In the same way, if we want to improve employee engagement, we need to lead differently. Backed by solid scientific evidence and packed with stories, examples and anecdotes, this book shows us how.
