Publisher's Summary

Leadership is a relationship - but that relationship must change, say legendary organizational scholar Edgar Schein and former Silicon Valley executive Peter Schein. The vertical hierarchy, with its emphasis on formal, transactional relationships, professional distance, and all guidance coming from the top, is hopelessly inflexible and outdated.

In a complex world, leadership must rely on high levels of trust and openness throughout the organization, and that can be achieved only by what they call personization and Level 2 relationships, which build the agility to make course corrections quickly.

This book tells how such humble leadership has built effective cultures in a whole range of sectors: health care, government, the military, tech and innovation, and more.

slow and repetitive

slow and long winded for a simple concept. the narrator combined with the repetitive examples really put me to sleep.

Meh... Disappointing.

Reads (listens) more like a textbook than anything with any power and potency. The narrator has all the words right and the right annunciation, etc, etc, but now real heart or investment in the material. I have to be honest, I just came off of listening to Brene Brown's "Dare To Lead" which was powerful and dynamic in every way. I had so many "ah-ha" moments with that book that coming to his right after was a huge letdown.

If you're at all a student of growth and leadership then a lot of the concepts presented here are going to be redundant. Its very rare that I don't force myself to listen all the way to the end of a book just to gain even 1 nugget from it. Not sure I'm going to be able to do that with this one.
