Book Description

June 15 2011

Leadershift is about adapting and changing traditional models of leadership in response to the influence of mass collaboration, a form of collective action involving large numbers of people working independently on a single project – Wikipedia, for example.  As traditional models of collaboration are radically altered, those in leadership roles need to understand their place in this new hierarchy and how to respond.  Mass collaboration requires a form of leadership that is prepared to let go of the experience, expertise and control it holds precious and be able to see mass participation as an opportunity rather than a threat.

Emmanuel Gobillot describes how to adapt traditional leadership roles, and presents the tools necessary to succeed in this new age.  His model allows leaders to successfully engage with these communities, recognize and develop talent, and win customer loyalty.

Each chapter concludes with a “30 second recap” that summarizes key ideas.

Product Description


"In today's wikinomics world, yesterday's leadership traits can be a liability.  Leadershift shows leaders how to prepare their collaborative minds." - Don Tapscott, author of Wikinomics

"The book's arrival is timely, because its subject matter is a truth of the commercial environment.... I found the analysis both convincing and helpful." -Management Today 

"Gobillot, a leadership consultant, defines mass collaboration as the collective actions of large numbers of people accomplishing goals independent of organizations, using social media technology, wikis, and virtual worlds such as Second Life. He explains what this phenomenon means for leaders in the new communal landscape and exhorts leaders in private, public, and nonprofit organizations to adapt to this new paradigm by letting go of control. He reviews trends shaping mass collaboration: multiple generations are increasingly working alongside each other, expertise is now found outside the organization as well as inside, and organizations must fight for the attention of employees and customers. The rest of the book explains how leaders can fulfill their roles in the age of mass collaboration and how they must shift their priorities. Brief chapter summaries and an annotated list of recommended books are included." -- Book News Inc.

"[T]his smart and readable volume was a very pleasant surprise.... I'll be sure to keep track of [Gobillot] henceforth." -- Miami Herald

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future is Now April 26 2010
By Rod Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Emmanuel Gobillot's timely book takes us on a journey into the future of leadership. One of the first surprises we encounter on this journey is that, given the sudden increase in the pace of change brought about by the rapid spread of digital technology and its incredible capacity for mass collaboration, it turns out that the future is now. "Leadershift" makes the case for how the "new now" is rendering our traditional notions of experience, knowledge, effort, and power completely irrelevant. The new age of mass collaboration follows a radically different set of rules that completely redefines the fundamental roles and responsibilities of leaders. If you want to learn the secrets for leading in this "new now," Gobillot's entertaining stories and compelling insights will show you how to take advantage of the new efficiencies of mass collaboration to successfully navigate businesses through the turbulent waters of our unprecedented times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful report on the changing requirements of leadership Dec 15 2009
By Rolf Dobelli - Published on Amazon.com
Emmanuel Gobillot, a senior leadership consultant, is an author for thoughtful readers. His books are smart, subtle and nuanced. He insists that you look at established truths in new ways. In some cases, Gobillot demolishes old verities and substitutes new realities, as you will see in his examination of leadership. He shows why the old leadership paradigm, based on "experience, expertise and control," is defunct. According to Gobillot, modern leaders must change their mindsets if they wish to stay relevant. getAbstract recommends his provocative book to executives and managers who want their organizations to succeed in the new collaborative work environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does leadership need to SHIFT? April 14 2010
By J. Thomas Hood III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Emmanuel Gobillot thinks so (and I happen to agree). Increasing pace of change, the age of mass collaboration, the age of particpation, the rising millenials, and the wiki-economy will (and are) having profound changes on how business is conducted. This book gives you the roadmap to start figuring out the "shifts" you need to make.

The book ooutlines the four shifts that will get you thinking : Simplicity, Narrative, Tasks, and Love. Go buy this book now!
