Doing Well and Doing Good: Human-Centered Digital Transformation Leadership
Wondering how to lead digital transformation in the face of a technological revolution will fundamentally change the way we live, work and relate to one another? Then take a look at my new book, Doing Well and Doing Good: Human Centered Digital Transformation Leadership, published by World Scientific. I and my co-authors, Liora Gross and Bill Pasmore, introduce a new leadership model that surfaces the critical challenges digital transformation leaders encounter--and the human-centered leadership capabilities that can be used to overcome them.
"A must-read for those wanting comprehensive perspectives on the human impact of technological change. The value lies in the practical takeaways derived from real world cases, interviews and research — guiding what leaders can do at every point of their journey to create a better, more equitable future."
"Transform or die! That is the choice most organizations face when they encounter a powerful disruptive force. Digital technologies, for many organizations is a life-or-death disruption. This book comes along at just the right time. It gives us insightful questions and sound practices to lead towards a purposely designed future. Read it, become a people-centered transformational leader, and then go do it!"
