Interesting view on social media and leadership

Charlene Li’s new book “Open Leadership” sounds interesting, a couple of views in a review caught my attention:

today’s business world is too complex and competitive to permit organizations to continue to manage the way they have since the Industrial Revolution.

That sounds right to me. Li argue, according to one of the review:

social media sites can improve efficiency, communication, and decision-making for leaders and their organizations.

Li shares what she thinks about good old top-down philosophy

the top-down philosophy assumes that people are idiots who can’t accomplish tasks without instructions, rigid rules and constant oversight.

I must get hold of a copy of the book (I am not affiliated with Charles Li or the publisher)
