BAD LEADERS ARE BRINGING THE PLANET TO THE EDGE OF DOOM. THIS BOOK SHOWS US WE STILL HAVE TIME TO TAKE A DIFFERENT PATH – IF WE FOLLOWERS DEMAND BETTER LEADERSHIP AT WORK AND IN THE WORLD
We are outraged by the people who climb to the top of the greasy pole and emerge as our leaders. But being outraged doesn’t do any good – it still leaves us powerless. This book offers a way forward to a different kind of leadership that tackles the environment crisis head on. Corporate leaders have to change. Political leaders have to change. All of us have to change. We have to stop being indignant and start being powerful. We don’t have much time to make the changes that are needed.

Different ways of organising
The Climate Crisis won’t get resolved by us moaning at our lousy leaders and their appalling indecision. Environmental destruction won’t be stopped by bosses who have learned to speak green cliches. We need to hold our leaders to account – and we followers need to hold ourselves to account as well if we are going to wake up and read the writing on the wall.
Species like ours don’t last long. There have been many upright apes with big brains over the last few million years. These species are all gone. We are the only ones left.
On the current crisis
We have achieved so much in the blink of an evolutionary eye – a very young and hugely successful species. We got ourselves into this mess using our human skills. Our skills are our only hope of getting out of the mess.
On the workplace
If my experience demonstrates that my voice does not matter then I will learn to be powerless. If I am told that my voice matters – but then my voice is ignored – I learn to be cynical. If experience tells me that I can make a difference, then I can develop the skills to be powerful.
