Daniel Edds consider the leading Systemic Leadership thinker.
Besides having articles accepted by national periodicals, Dan is the author of two books. His most recent book is, Leveraging the Genetics of Leadership, cracking the code of sustainable team performance (AVIVA Publishing, New York, 2020). This is the first book that uses case studies and first-person interviews to discover that high-impact organizations design their approach to Leadership as an organizational system. Case studies include education, manufacturing, industrial, small business, the U.S. Military, healthcare, and an NFL Superbowl Champion. This book is born from observing his clients over his twenty-five-year consulting practice. After completing wildly successful consulting engagements, he observed significant differences in results. Unfortunately, too many resulted in no improvement in organizational performance and employee engagement. In studying why, it became clear that the difference was Leadership. However, it was not individual leaders. Instead, the fault lay in leadership systems never designed to produce engaged employees and maximize stakeholder value. The result is a revolutionary new book that documents how high-impact organizations design leadership systems to engage their employee and deliver extraordinary customer value.
Personal leadership is important but it's not enough for organizations, companies, and communities. Systemic leadership prepare the solution that company have to adopt to evolve their organizational leadership practices.
To understand how you could do that, joining this program will help you to transfer your Organizational systemic leadership to the next level.
Besides learning from the leading Systemic leadership expert, this program is not an ordinary theoretical one but it's a unique and practical/developmental program that will facilitate your mission in improving the leadership practices and systemize it's practices under shared purposes.
I have experienced the power of what Dan describes as a leadership system—focusing your efforts as a leader on developing and creating value versus managing/controlling, tapping into every person’s wisdom and knowledge, and using failure to learn. Dan’s book ultimately serves as an inspiration combined with offering practical advice for leaders who want to create a high-performing organization.”
