The First Discipline
Process Leadership for Problem Solving Teams
by Victor Newman
About the Book
Process Leadership is the ability that great leaders have in both managing the day-to-day tactics of getting things done, whilst putting those tactics and tasks within a larger, strategic process that ensures that the right stuff gets done in the right way, at the right time, through following an overarching, logical approach.
Process Leadership is fundamentally about developing 2 abilities: the first ability, to ask great questions at the right time, in the right order; and secondly, the ability to move into a “helicopter” perspective at the drop of a hat, consciously putting activities and priorities within a larger context.
This is not easy.
This handbook provides a background resource in terms of ideas and principles for readers and participants interested in developing Process Leadership for themselves and within teams.
