A transformational book for trying times, Dare to Un-Lead will challenge the way you think and feel about the role of leadership in your life.

What is revered as leadership today is often nothing more than a destructive set of obsolete behaviors and systems evolved from the centuries-old industrial theories popularized by Frederick Taylor and Henry Ford. This mode of leadership harms individuals and societies and must be reinvented to better reflect the way we live, trade, and work in the 21st century. 

Dare to Un-Lead explores how contemporary organizations can transform leadership from a top-down hegemony to one that empowers people to lead together through the concepts of liberty, equality, and community.

Kotter affiliate and global engagement leadership specialist Céline Schillinger combines her experience enacting digital-enabled, people-focused collective work practices in global corporate structures with a deep analysis of leadership—studied through multiple lenses and timely sources of knowledge—to provide original insights into why these practices work.

The result is a series of evidence-based approaches for reinventing collective performance across organizations in a post-pandemic world.

From large corporations to small businesses, the lessons learned in this landmark book, implemented individually and collectively over time, will make our workplaces more equal, our jobs more gratifying, and our economies more profitable. And that will make the world a better place.
