Leadership is in crisis mode. It is broken. Even though we are spending billions of dollars annually to improve leadership, employee disengagement rates are on the rise globally.
Something needs to change.
It's time to lead different.
Prof. Gary Martin, CEO Australian Institute of Management WA
What makes this book different? The messages are simple, practical and actionable. Whether you are an aspirant leader, an experienced mid-level manager or even an executive, Simplified will “stop you in your tracks”, and compel you to reflect on all aspects of your ongoing development as a leader.

"People want their lives to be more meaningful. A purpose-driven leaders gives them work that is meaning full." - A Clarism
If you are going to lead people, it makes sense that you should understand people. You need to understand the process of human behaviour. How we got to be who we are and HOW TO become who we need to be.
Now we understand people as individuals, we need to understand how those people behave in organisations. Understanding HOW TO create organizational behaviour change is critical to build an invincible culture.
People want three things. We will work through the three “somes” and what you need to understand about each of these. Then we will look at HOW TO build a framework that encompasses all of them.
What problem are you solving in the world? We will look at the importance of understanding WHY you are in business beyond making money. Then we will work out HOW TO use that to engage your employees.
We’ll look beyond the common place corporate principles that are inherent in every business. We will learn HOW TO empower your team with a deeper understanding of the unique thinking your business possesses.
What does the world you see look like? What is the contribution your business will make to that world by fulfilling your purpose through your values? Learn HOW TO use vision to inspire your team to do their best work.
Total alignment of your culture and strategy happens when you reverse engineer your vision. We will learn HOW TO create an aligned strategy that brings your vision into reality. Culture leads strategy.
Businesses need to overhaul their structures and dismantle hierarchies to adapt and become innovative. We will learn HOW TO lead teams with a purpose-centric structure to empower innovation and build leaders.
If your customer service sucks it’s because your leadership sucks. What happens on the inside will find a way to manifest itself on the outside. We will learn HOW TO create an inside out customer experience model.
Leadership is in crisis mode around the world. Disengagement rates are on the rise. Our investment in developing leaders isn’t producing the expected results. It is time to lead different.

Peter Thurin, Founder of Blackbelt in Excellence. Australia's leading authority on personal performance & author of 'Be The Best You Can Be'
I was so drawn to the book not by just the message, but the ease in which I can take the message away. The well crafted use of diagrams, models, bold text and powerful quotes that are relevant and resonate so strongly with me add to the simplicity. I can read the book from beginning to end or pick it up, read 2-3 pages, and take something meaningful away and implement. Many leadership books focus on why, this one gives you the how to. Unlike many other authors who like to complicate, a major strength of Dave's book is in his ability to simplify.
