I warmly welcome this book on the new style of leadership, needed by organisations to survive and thrive in complex and volatile business environments. I could not agree more –it is all about people and their mindset!

Vlatka Hlupic, author of the award-winning The Management Shift Book

I am a big fan of self-management for workplaces. However, as a co-founder of a self-managed company, I get very impatient with books that overhype self-management and don’t spend enough time on how to get there and how to make it sustainable. Erik is a practitioner and it shows in this book. As he says, this book is not a ‘codex that you must follow dogmatically’. Better than that, the book is a platform for the mindset, habits, and practices to help you create a more humane and meaningful workplace, with more engaged and happier people. Go ahead and read it.

Excellent! Erik has written a book you can’t put down. He takes you by the hand and leads you safely through the vast amount of academic studies and leadership literature and presents his own very attractive and consistent framework on how to shift from the Yesterday of Work to the Future of Work – as a leader, as an organization, as a human. Erikmasters the art of inviting you into the world of uncertainty and gives you a map to navigate towards the rising sun. Hint: It’s all about people, curiosity and circular learning.
