Publisher's Summary

Flat Army arms you with powerful tools for overcoming resistance to change and creating a culture of collaboration, engagement, and employee empowerment.
Your people are your most valuable asset, and if you want them to excel (and your profits to soar), you'll need to abandon your traditional command-and-control management style and adopt a collaborative, open leadership approach - one that engages and empowers your people.

And most of those who do get it lack the skills for putting it into practice. In Flat Army you'll find powerful leadership models and tools that help you challenge yourself and overcome your personal obstacles to change, while pushing the boundaries of organizational change to create a culture of collaboration.

Great Insights for Collaborative Leadership

Dan’s sharing of collaborative and participative leadership is indeed what Dan stands for as an active leader inside and outside of TELUS. Dan walks the talk! I have experienced this having been on Dan’s team at TELUS for 5 years. Dan was truly a different type of leader and it was refreshing to see how Dan treated all members of our team as equals. He encouraged us to participate with our voice, develop our strengths and demonstrate what we brought to the team through our actions and results. Collaboration was key to our team’s success. Flat Army is a very good read, well researched with many great examples and analogies to help all team members’ work together as one team.

No real value. somebody else should have narrated

this drags on and on. I listen for five chapters hoping that something would change but there was no way I could continue to go forward. I realized three or four times that I just completely lost it and it was occupied with something else because it had nothing to offer me. I hope somebody else learns at my expense and avoids this.
