“Jason’s handbook for pioneering executives provides a rich source of thinking and authentically different approaches to drive your business world.”

Brendon Riley, Group Executive at Telstra

Insightful, funny and entertaining aren’t words you’d often use to describe a business book ... and that’s because it’s not your normal business book. Jason brings a different perspective to what it really means to be a leader in today’s world.”

Philip Goldie, Director of Partner Business at Microsoft

“When confronted with an area we must learn, most of us yearn for a friend who can lead us through this new space, gently and with humour, free of judgement or patronising tone. Jason serves that role for the business world, through the pages of each book. Pulling together insights and learnings from academia, case studies and pop-culture, you'll be guided through ways to make work more engaging, business futures less risky, and blind-spots smaller in magnitude. His theme of a ‘quest’ helps you tie together these diverse ideas into a narrative thread that is both fun and informative.”

Andrew Fallshaw, CEO of Bellroy


From the back cover...

 

Workplace cultures have become cursed with efficiency. And so when it comes to developing strategy, we default to our defaults. We favour quick fixes, easy templates and familiar approaches, developing robust plans that do little to mitigate strategic risk or generate new value.

The result?
The future comes, and businesses die.

But no longer! *cue trumpets* How to Lead a Quest is a book for pioneering leaders—folks who know that enterprise strategy is far too important to condemn to SMART goals, ‘a clear vision for the future’ and other such rubbish.

Not for the faint of heart or short-of-wit, this uniquely refreshing book bravely tackles the paradox that is pioneering leadership. You'll discover how to lead meaningful progress—even if you don't know what the goal or destination looks like.

Within this book, you’ll discover how to:

» Liberate enterprise leadership and workplace cultures from the curse of efficiency, default thinking and the delusion of progress
» Explore complex and uncertain futures to find profound insights that mitigate strategic risks and ensure your business model remains viable
» Create new value and enduring relevance by pioneering into uncharted and unprecedented territory
» Embed new structures and rituals into your enterprise to build for the future, while still delivering operational excellence today

 

Rated 9/10 on getAbstract!

 

“Fox’s manual teaches you how to imagine a multitude of possible futures and prepare for any of them. In detail, Fox shows how to brainstorm visions of the future, test your hypotheses about what’s to come and cultivate your colleagues’ pioneer spirit. And especially if you like whimsy, you may have some fun with this book: It’s full of quirky drawings, and Fox replaces the usual jargon with attention-getting coinages like ‘the Inevitable Kraken of Doom.’ getAbstract recommends Fox’s unique approach to the self-employed, entrepreneurs and executives seeking to be ready for the future.
