REMOVE THE BAND-AID BOOK OVERVIEW
Right now, countless organizations are taking their first steps towards death.
They may seem highly successful from the outside. But they are suffering from heart disease. Internal conflict, hidden agendas and a growing discrepancy between their inner life, their actions, and their public image are causing a dire lack of trust, an increase in occupational burnout and a loss of engagement.
Throughout the last few years, the Me Too movement, rampant corruption, and numerous scandals, combined with ethical concerns around technological innovation, have rattled global conscience and shaken once seemingly untouchable organizations. Instead of uncovering the root causes, many leaders have attempted to cover them up with PR strategies or purpose statements and corporate values that have served as mere Band-Aids—hiding the symptoms temporarily, but never addressing their underlying reality.
There is, however, a growing movement of leaders who recognize that enduring success is dependent upon the health of their organization’s inner life. That what is being said in a private meeting is as critical as their marketing collateral. That true values are seen, not just through words on the website, but in what is being pursued, prioritized and promoted. They create outstanding clarity, build teams that are one in heart, and ensure consistent integrity. These leaders address underlying heart issues by practicing courageous humility. They develop resilient success.
This book is YOUR guide to uncovering the heart of YOUR organization; remove the Band-Aid, address the heart issues, and build health. Based on research, personal experience and conversations with top leaders in global organizations, Tobias Sturesson outlines the Five Principles of Heart Management, with practical steps on how you can implement this powerful framework in the life of your organization. Not only is it great for the bottom line, it’s vital for humanity.
