Herminia Ibarra’s book, ‘Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader,’ offers efficient guidance on how managers and executives at all levels may position themselves for leadership and expand their effect throughout their businesses by making modest but significant adjustments. Her guiding philosophy is that the assumption that we change from the inside out is a myth. Instead, her study focuses on how people view and describe themselves as leaders and create their leadership identities. People become leaders through completing leadership tasks, according to her studies. As she calls it, the outsight concept is about being a leader from the outside in. She also claims that action is the only way to obtain foresight.

This book has really helped re-energise me as a person, as well as look at our agency and my role–now I focus on the business and not the work. I appreciate it’s a bit out of place from the rest of the selection, so see it as an update on where we’re at now as people and as a business. The music is still there, the art is still there, and the inspiration is still there.” — Dan Moore, managing director, It’s Nice That
