We meet a growing number of leaders who are interested in a strengths and solutions-based approach to leadership, one that is appropriate for the 21st century and brings out the very best in people. They recognise that organisational success is enduring only when employees contribute their full value through optimising their strengths and reducing performance risks.
But most leaders lack a clear route map to help them translate the philosophy into action and measurable results. Stretch – Leading Beyond Boundaries – aims to do just that. Through a short and engaging fable of a leader discovering the power of this research-based approach, it provides practical advice and tools to help leaders optimise their unique strengths and learn 4 powerful Leadership Habits to positively stretch themselves, their team and their organisation.
Outcomes you can expect include:
- Clear vision and sense of purpose
- Engaged employees who bring passion to their jobs and the organisation
- Processes that work and are innovative
- Higher levels of productivity and performance

If you are serious about embarking on a journey to 'stretch' yourself and move forward professionally and personally, this book will be invaluable. James and Paul outline a positive and powerful approach to building on your strengths and addressing limitations. Through this enjoyable yet challenging story we're able to see the reality of just how transformational a change in thinking and behaviour can be. This is an important book which I would highly recommend to leaders and those aspiring to leadership.
