How can you develop the 5 most relevant leadership qualities to achieve breakthrough business results, while preparing yourself for the future?

Today’s leaders must possess qualities like CREATIVITY, RESILIENCE, AGILITY, FOCUS, and TRUST (CRAFT Leadership) to be able to deal with the pressures of their daily business environment. These pressures include rapidly changing markets, technologies, and workforce; increased financial and legal scrutiny; and being separated from their people due to enormous time pressure and the rapid rise of the hybrid work environment. Only high-quality leaders of today and tomorrow can build sustainable companies.

This book not only presents the unique model of CRAFT Leadership, but it also provides practical guidance and reflection tools for experienced leaders to stay sharp and for leadership candidates to become future leaders. It guides the reader through a comprehensive leadership journey answering such questions as What is your way of being a crafted leader? What makes you a powerful and unique leader? How can you become a future-proof CRAFTed leader?
