Summary: In an era of complexity, uncertainty and change, today’s leaders must be agile and wise.

TAMPA, FL—October 8, 2014 – Dr. Mary Lippitt, award-winning author, speaker and educator has just released her third book, Brilliant or Blunder; 6 Ways Leaders Navigate Uncertainty, Opportunity and Complexity. The book, utilizing her research with over 6,000 global leaders, contends that truly effective leaders must understand the use of specific “mindsets” to evaluate their current business situation and choose wiser choices in order to cope with today’s volatile work environment.
“Complexity and uncertainty are as certain as death and taxes,” comments Dr. Lippitt. “Every leadership story of success or even disaster highlights how leaders cope with complexity and uncertainty. In my research and work with various organizations across many industries, I have found that true leadership agility requires attention to mental mindsets. By learning how to identify which of the critical mindset to use, today’s leaders can make wiser decisions and achieve stronger results without requiring a major shift in their personal style or personality.”
Brillant or Blunder provides mindset templates to effectively judge an organization’s current needs, trends and opportunities. By identifying specific mindsets, leaders can ensure that they have the information necessary to make the best decisions. The book goes on to explore how too often leaders are using the rear view mirror to get crystal clear 20/20 vision only to discover what went wrong or what succeeded; and reveals how balancing these six specific mindsets can provide a more comprehensive analysis of a particular business environment and circumstances in order to make more incisive and actionable decisions.
“These six mindsets challenge a leader’s potential knee jerk response, outdated assumptions and obsolete habits. Discovering the best leadership path forward does not require a crystal ball. It requires an open mind and effective analysis of the situation,” added Dr. Lippitt.
You can meet Dr. Lippitt on November 5, 2014 at a book signing event at Richter Publishing’s Tampa Bay Book Gala and Author Awards Ceremony at Clearwater Community Sailing Center located at 1001 Gulf Blvd, Clearwater, FL 33767 from 6 – 9 pm.
The book was released by October 30th and is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailers. For more information about Brilliant or Blunder; 6 Ways Leaders Navigate Uncertainty, Opportunity and Complexity, please contact Diana Blackburn at 813.802.0534 or Diana@EnterpriseMgt.com
