The challenges faced by organizations today are increasingly complex, volatile, and multidimensional. To many, they seem insurmountable. And they may well be if only traditional leadership, management, and technical competencies are used to confront them.

In this book, the authors make the case that most leaders do not use all of the competencies at their disposal. They set forth additional, neglected ways of leading, what they call creative leadership competencies — paying attention, personalizing, imaging, serious play, co-inquiry, and crafting — and show what they mean and how to use them for increased effectiveness in confronting turbulence.
