About the Book
A Multidimensional Approach to Leadership

Top-down, one-dimensional leadership models are hopelessly outmoded in today's rapidly changing world, and they waste the leadership ability that is present throughout an organization. In this visionary book, Karen and Henry Kimsey-House provide a model that harnesses the possibility of many rather than relying on the power of one. Their revolutionary five-dimensional approach recognizes that leadership has to be fluid and flexible and that the roles leaders and followers play must shift to suit the situation. Co-Active Leadership invites all of us to share our expertise and allows collaborative solutions to emerge that would never have been possible otherwise.

My Take on the Book
This book makes you think about leadership in a whole new way. It makes you look at your personal and professional life and re-evaluate your priorities. The book was practical and shares tips and resources that will create a plan for you to follow to change your own life, but also the lives of the people around you as well.

What made this book strong was that the book itself had a ton of coaches/experts available to you to learn from. The information that they are sharing in the book simply makes sense and makes the overall book a very fast read overall.

If you are looking for a book that will challenge and support you, this is a must read!
