Weisbord, M., & Janoff, S. (2015). Lead more, control less: 8 advanced leadership skills that overturn convention.  Berret-Koehler Publishers. 

“people who have discretion, broad skills, accurate information, and opportunities for growth motivate themselves…people respond to jobs that foster autonomy and growth…It means enabling communication up, down, and sideways …It means …integrating meetings between departments rather that putting up with silos.” (p. 3)

  1. control structure, no people
  2. let everyone be responsible
  3. consider anxiety “blocked excitement”
  4. avoid “taking it personally”
  5. disrupt fight or flight
  6. include the right people
  7. experience the whole elephant
  8. surface unspoken agreements
