I know…the title was total clickbait, but it worked right?
I’ll be honest, this is a book pitch…
I want you to buy my latest book, The Future Leader.
But you know who else wants you to buy it? The leaders of the world’s top companies, and YOUR leaders, and YOUR team members!
Because we don’t have enough future-ready leaders around the world and this is simply put, a cold…hard…fact.
- According to a survey of 25,000 leaders around the world done by DDI, only 42% of organizations said that the overall quality of leadership inside of their organizations was high.
- Half of the organizations surveyed by DDI say their leaders are not skilled to lead effectively today and 71% say their leaders are not ready to lead their organizations in the future.
I can give you dozens of stats just like this. In my own research I found that less than 10% of leaders around the world are practicing the 9 skills and mindsets that I talk about in my book “very well.” These include things like emotional intelligence, thinking like a futurist, surrounding yourself with people who are not like you, practicing a growth mindset, and many others.
I don’t want you to buy this because it’s going to allow me to retire on an island somewhere (but that would be nice).
I want you to buy The Future Leader because it will make you a better leader and it will help you (and all of us) change the world for the better. I believe that we all deserve to be a part of an organization where we genuinely WANT not NEED to show up to work each day, and that starts with leaders just like you.
Paul Polman, the CEO of Unilever read it and said:
“Jacob’s book answers the most pressing questions on the future of leadership. Based on impressive research, this is the guidebook for the next generation of leaders around the world.”
I interviewed over 140 of the world’s top CEOs from companies like Oracle, Unilever, Mastercard, Audi, Verizon, Best Buy, Siemens, KPMG, and over 100 others. I also teamed up with LinkedIn to survey nearly 14,000 employees globally.
Honestly, where else will you get a book that has input from this many amazing business leaders?
Hubert Joly the CEO of Best Buy said:
“Jacob Morgan has managed a tour de force. Based on in-depth research, this very colorful book forcefully and beautifully captures what is expected of leaders in this new world. This may be the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive thought piece on this critical topic out there.”
- Why and how leadership is changing.
- The greatest challenges facing leaders and how to overcome them.
- The 4 mindsets that the world’s top CEOs says are crucial for current and aspiring leaders and how to practice them.
- The 5 skills that current and aspiring leaders need to learn.
- and much more!
You will also hear stories and quotes directly from the many CEOs I interviewed in this one-of-a-kind book.
I’ll make you a deal, if you buy the book, I’ll give you access to my Future Leader Masterclass for free. All you need to do is send me a screenshot (jacob[at]thefutureorganization.com) from July 16, 2021 or later showing that you bought the hardcover book, sound fair?
I hope so.
This book will transform who you are as a leader and as a person. I hope you decide to grab a copy for yourself and your team members, you’ll be glad you did!
