Good intentions are not enough. You want to change things in your organisation or in the world, but despite your best efforts you run into obstacles and resistance. The temptation is to see the challenges as lying outside ourselves. We grasp at a model or a tool, or we find other people slow to get the point or worse - obstructive.

This book is a wonderful addition to the books on adaptive leadership - looking at the complex relationships that exists in any system but most particularly, our role in that system and the personal responsibility we are prepared to take to change and adapt ourselves.

Leadership Beyond Good Intentions, as its title suggests, recognises that people in leadership roles usually have very good intentions but that good intentions are not enough. It encourages us to examine our own capacity to change and develop beyond this. The book takes us into the complex dynamics of adaptive leadership where we are often expected to solve all the problems. It reminds us of how easily we get `seduced' into believing we must do this. If this is all we do, we create a dependent workforce; if we fail (as inevitably we must) we get blamed and criticised. The questions that lie at the heart of this book are: How do we challenge these expectations to exercise leadership, informed by our values, and enable others to do their best work? What is the work we must do on ourselves?

In a very conversational tone, Aigner invites us to examine the values that lie behind our intentions, talking to us about the challenging work of adaptive leadership, and encouraging us to reflect on the changes we can make. One of the most compelling aspects of this book are the reflective questions at the end of every chapter, bringing every point back to our own experience and helping us shape how we could do things differently. It's like having your own executive coach!

The book guides us through ways to make our actions congruent with our values and intentions and to exercise true leadership by enabling others.
It is a wonderful blend of theory and ideas, values, actions and coaching questions. If you are prepared to reflect on your own intentions and actions in order to exercise leadership in challenging circumstances, you can do no better than read this book.

This book is about the difference between romance and love. This book is a well argued exposition of the 'fantasy' of leadership and the reality of what it takes. Many writers look at the impact of leaders on organisations and followers; few writers address the emotional journey of the and its impact on those who lead.

In this book, Geoff Aigner gets very real about leadership - there's not a model in sight, not even ten top tips; just some fabulously challenging real thoughts about the journey of leading - the internal journey.
This is a very approachable book that explores some important concepts relevant to every leader's experience. Each chapter concludes with questions allowing time to consider the material and reflect on our own leadership experience. Read it if you are up for provocation, thinking about and reflecting on your (inner) world as a leader.

Chapters such as:

Fantasies of leadership (yours and those around you)
Willingness (and even the imperative) to learn, with the discomfort of not knowing the answers, even being 'incompetent' to enable new and relevant solutions to challenging situations
Betrayal
Passion, neutrality, love and wisdom;

Will support your journey and be refreshing reading in the leadership space.
