After the success of One Second Ahead, Potential Project asked us to help with writing of their second book with Harvard Business Review Press. We provided editorial and writing services throughout the first draft, review draft, and final draft.
Business leaders across the globe face a crisis that calls into question the fundamentals of traditional leadership. Never before have we seen employees more disengaged from and disillusioned with their work. Yet, with the speed and complexity of business in today´s digital age, never before has it been as critical for organizations to tap into the creativity, resourcefulness, and energy of their greatest asset – their people.
The Mind of the Leader provides a groundbreaking, new model of leadership, addressing this issue by identifying the three core qualities needed for effective leadership in the 21st century: Mindfulness (M), Selflessness (S), and Compassion (C). Based on exhaustive research and years of practice, Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter of the Potential Project have conclusively found that these three mental qualities comprise the ideal mind of the leader, which they call the MSC Leadership Mind. Mindfulness addresses the distractedness that kills focus and stunts productivity. Selflessness addresses the general lack of fulfillment in work life. And compassion addresses today’s social disintegration by enhancing true human connections, followership, and engagement.
This is a radical redefinition of what it takes to be an effective leader.
