Leaders and their followers are increasingly searching for meaning in the workplace. In a world of volatility and complexity, many seek models of leadership that are more articulate and quiet; that link to the self and humanity; that bring meaning and creativity; that are comfortable with ambiguity. Yet we continue to work in environments that prioritise self-sufficiency and fast results; that reward directive styles of leadership. Many would argue that there is a widening gulf between what people want from their leaders, and what traditional modes of leadership succession and management development deliver. There is a plethora of authoritative advice about how one should lead, and a multitude of definitions of leadership. Rather than add to this canon, this book provides a way of seeing leadership. It offers up the idea of poetic leadership - a way of leading that is beautiful, intelligent, complex, subtle, and engaging. The book takes some of the fundamental building blocks of poetic writing, and looks at how these can be used to guide the leader through choices. It deals with some of the contentious aspects of leadership, reflecting on the experience of leaders and what it is actually like to lead. It explores the big issues and daily choices that leaders face, and suggests a possible scheme that might support them. Each of the main chapters explores a particular facet of poetry or an element of poetic writing, including language, rhythm, rhyme, story, lateral thinking and emotional connection. The book explores specific leadership challenges, such as dealing with ambiguity, managing change and fostering innovation, and looks at what a poetic approach might offer. Rhyme and Reason is performative as well as descriptive of poetry, and includes several examples of poetry. If you are the kind of person who likes to find new ways of seeing things, who tends to think in models and metaphors rather than ‘how to’s, who has a poetic mind, Rhyme and Reason will speak to you. It has been written to help the reader to find a deeper connection with who they are - and how they want to be - as a leader; and to support them in taking the kinds of actions that will make their organisation and the world a better place.
