Dynamical Leadership: Building Adaptive Capacity in Uncertain Times

Dynamical Leadership builds on metaphors from complexity science and chaos theory to change the way you think about the leadership landscape in times of unbelievable change. Dynamical change is unpredictable, entangled on many dimensions, and is full of energy, power, motion, motivational force, and vigor. It is also characterized by continuous change, activity, or progress. This kind of change requires a different kind of leader who knows how to see and influence patterns, use differences for maximum capacity building, and engage people in a new way.

This book draws from human systems dynamics to offer models, tools, and examples that guide leaders to a new frontier.
