Everyone A Leader
A Guide to Leading High-performance Organizations for Engineers and ScientistsBook - 2013
Aimed at practicing engineers and scientists as well as students, Everyone a Leader offers innovative learning frameworks for acquiring competence in leadership that were originally developed at DuPont Canada.
This book is specifically tailored to meet the needs of those in engineering and scientific fields. David Colcleugh, leadership educator and former CEO of DuPont Canada, draws examples of value-added processes and systems familiar to engineers and scientists to illustrate the importance of developing leadership capabilities in addition to technical skills. Colcleugh brings theories to life through a wealth of case studies and examples from his own career.
The models presented in this book have been tested both in the field and as teaching tools at the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering at the University of Toronto. Stressing continuous improvement, ethical standards, and teamwork, Everyone a Leader reveals how organizational change becomes possible when every employee is not only a functional expert, but also a leader.
