Reflective Leaders and High Performance Organizations

How effective leaders balance "task" and "relationships" to build high performance organizations.


This book, co-authored with Dr. Peter Smyth, demonstrates the importance of leaders in building high performance organizations. Effective leaders focus on both their "Purpose" - what they exist to do, together with their "Values" through which their behaviour is guided and results in "the way we do things around here."

While Purpose forms the driver for the process, activities, tasks and projects through which resource inputs are converted to outputs, Values form the foundation for organizational behaviour - way in which people work with each other and build relationships. Effective relationships create the launching pad for high performance.

This book explains the stages and tasks necessary to build leaders and leadership teams that enable such as climate to develop and perform.
