    The topics look fresh in how they are being handled. It looks to be an informative read. some day would love to see a book on how employees can influence (lead) bosses to better practices in leadership. It seems that people at the grassroots level get the concepts first and easiest, while those in senior positions still prefer to lead with an isolated perspective.

  2. eweber says:

    Wow – you are so right Alex! Thanks for weighing in! You make a great case here for the brainpowered tools I tossed into the ASTD book and others too offered keen leader tools from flattened hierarchies.

    One tactic, for instance is a practice of mutual mentoring – called mindguiding – where senior execs and young upstarts teach and learn from one another. The brain is plastic and can change itself daily – based on what changes one actually applies. Senior leaders – who change it up based on what they learn from novices – become a great asset to the innovative process. In contrast stuck leaders that you refer to here clog and break entire systems.

    What’s your best leadership practice to avoid the problem you raised here? Best, Ellen
