Increasingly, organizations prioritize speed and agility yet rely on formulaic approaches to leadership and management built for the industrial age. Making the shift to lead for speed requires a different mindset, new tools, and new techniques to help people maintain focus while moving fast to meet customer needs and outpace competitors.

Eric McNulty presents a practical approach to meeting these challenges through ARTful leadership—leadership that emphasizes building adaptive capacity, resilience, and trust in organizations and across enterprises that may include freelancers, strategic alliances, and other nontraditional components. Embracing the full range of stakeholders as valuable resources, ARTful leaders prime their teams and organizations to learn more quickly and execute more nimbly in fast-moving markets and turbulent conditions.
