Tethered to the old rules of leadership?
It’s time to break free.
The traditional wisdom that molded leadership for years is losing its effectiveness in our chaotic, digitally overwhelmed world. Leaders now recognize they can’t possibly seize unexpected opportunities or take full advantage of today’s innovations if they are relying on old patterns.
In Leadership Unchained, Sara Canaday reveals insights and strategies to help you know when to follow conventional leadership rules…and when to break them.
If you’re a current or future leader, this book can become your game-changing guide to the new era of evolutionary leadership—the kind that’s no longer tethered to standard operating procedures and not afraid to redefine the rules.
Keynote Speaker, LinkedIn Learning Instructor and Author Sara Canaday is a rare blend of analytical entrepreneur and perceptive warmth. That powerful combination has increasingly made her a go-to resource for helping leaders and high-potential professionals achieve their best.
Her insights come from her real-world experience and a surprising phenomenon she noticed in her own rise up the corporate ladder: The most successful people aren’t necessarily the ones with the highest IQs or best job skills. Career advancement is actually more closely linked with how people apply their knowledge and talents—their capacity to collaborate, communicate, and influence others.
Though Sara quickly ascended through the ranks to an executive position in operations with a major company, she realized that helping others to maximize their career potential was truly her life’s work. After launching her own business as a speaker and consultant, she expanded her reach through her first book, “You—According to Them: Uncovering the blind spots that impact your reputation and your career.”
Today, Sara is a sought-after leadership speaker and educator, serving diverse organizations around the world. In that capacity, she has gained a unique, front-line view of leadership and its fascinating evolution. She shares those observations with in-depth analysis in her second book, “Leadership Unchained: Defy conventional wisdom for breakthrough performance,” which will be published in early 2019.
