Please Don’t Stop the Music: An ensemble leadership repertoire, productive sustainability, and strategic innovation for uncertain times
Vikram Murthy, AUT University, New Zealand David Mckie, Waikato University, New Zealand ISBN 978-0-955177156 ISSN 1747-1036 266 pages Business leaders operate in conditions of risk, uncertainty and unfamiliarity in an interdependent, culturally diverse and changing world. In this exceptionally well-researched treatise Murthy and McKie present a magisterial review of the extant literature, critically evaluating key modern management theories and their limitations in practice. On the strength of a superbly executed grounded theory study, Murthy and McKie argue for an augmented set of leadership practices – an Ensemble Leadership Repertoire – that can address the zeitgeist leadership challenges of finding individual meaning, delivering business success and contributing to society’s flourishing.
