About the content
It starts with a new generation of people – so called Edgeworkers – who take the risk of creating organizations in a completely new way and initiating a paradigm shift.
The book invites you to radical new thinking with regard to management. Giving various distinctions and examples, it describes the core skills of Edgeworkers, which go far beyond known „Leadership“. While classical management produces adaptive followers, Edgeworkingcreates empowered team partners who put themselves radically responsibly and with their full potential into the service of the common vision. Instead of “leading” in the old sense, Edgeworkers are spaceholders which make hierarchical structures obsolete. They hold space in a way that all participants co-create in an empowering, nourishing, centered and highly inspiring way. Sustainable redirection and restructuring of organizations start at the human level.
Are you ready for the management (r)evolution?
“This book provides clear hints on how leaders (people who “go ahead” in some way) can deal with new challenges in their businesses and communities.
Ordinary methods such as hierarchies, control and efficiency programs no longer deliver the results needed in a rapidly changing environment. Employees get sick in traditional leadership structures or suffer burnout.
It is obviously time to question the unconsciously accepted paradigms of this leadership and to try new approaches.
The two authors propose concrete tools to create a safe and productive environment based on communication, feedback and coaching as well as open dealing with feelings such as anger, fear, joy and sadness.” Kai Garrels
“An extraordinary book.
For people who are willing to break with beliefs and beliefs about leadership.
For visionaries who are deeply convinced that we need a new work culture in Germany and feel that it is possible.
For pioneers who take radical responsibility and do not wait for others to move forward.
For adventurers who venture into unfamiliar territory and feel that the change begins with themselves.
Described by the authors and written with great clarity & inspiration.
A book for Edgeworker. “ Katja Pischel
