During 20+ years in the IT and Telecommunications business in a variety of international positions and having enjoyed numerous years and events as volunteer in a variety of organizations, I have learned from different leaders, teams and cultures. This book will bring you my main learnings in a nutshell.

Business expectations remain at an all time high when considering return on investment, flexibility, expertise… To meet these expectations, there’s a permanent search for cost savings. Some companies will implement a total process / system overhaul though automation, outsourcing and/or moving to different locations/continents, however there’s a lot companies and their managers can do internally to increase the value add of the existing teams whilst improving the financials dramatically.

Exactly what you, as a leader, can do, that’s what this book is about! In this book I will focus on Leadership, Project management, Change management, High Performance & Self-Steering teams all of which can bring exceptional return when implemented, even if done in stages. Every chapter contains a bit of theory spiced up with real life cases on how to build a culture where you get the best out of your teams even when encountering adverse times and/or unexpected challenges.

The examples you’ll find in this book are real life cases collected from different assignments in different companies, from a variety of countries including a number of volunteering organizations I have supported or currently still support.

As a last introduction to this book I would like to share a brief thought: “an employee needs to deserve his or her place in the company, but the company needs as well to deserve the employee”. Certainly very valid now the war on talent is picking up.

Enjoy Your Leadership!
