Managing at the Leading Edge

by Mike Hunter

This book highlights lessons from the navigation and piloting practices used in high-performing sailing. In the contemporary “white water” business environment, as at sea, achieving goals requires choosing a destination amidst uncertainty, adjusting to continually shifting conditions, converting the push and pull of environmental forces into momentum and using different skills at different times to negotiate hazards and achieve success. Easy-to-grasp and recall, this book proposes a framework of leadership with a dual focus on navigating and piloting. This framework is supported by new evidence-based insights about personal and organizational high performance. This research featured surveys of more than 1,000 senior and mid-level leaders, the results of more than 100 interviews, and the author’s extensive consultation experience with a host of leaders and organizations.
