Explore the nature of modern leadership
 
In Confronting Our Freedom, a team of dedicated leadership coaches delivers an exciting and engaging new take on management and leadership. Drawing on recent events in the market and in the world, including the Great Resignation, the COVID-19 pandemic, and widespread digital transformation, the authors invite you to reimagine ideas of freedom and accountability in the context of work. You'll explore how freedom of action--for managers and employees--is what gives rise to true accountability, both in the community and in the workplace.
 
In the book, you'll also find:
* Discussions of the power and structure of freedom, including its implications for our own choices and lives
* Ways to shift the focus of your leadership and management to accountability and freedom
* Strategies for shifting the illusion of clear roles and expectations to one compatible with fully human organizations
 
A groundbreaking and incisive approach to managing and leading others in virtual, hybrid, and in-person settings, Confronting Our Freedom will be an eye opener for managers, executives, and other business leaders seeking to improve their ability to inspire others to their fullest potential.
