Rated 5 Stars by Readers’ Favorite.
“To be successful, you need to be agile.” You may have heard this oft-repeated adage. Agility is a much-talked-about, crucial quality expected of leaders.
But how does a leader become agile? How can a leader lead effectively in an often volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment? Are there ‘signposts’ to follow?
If these questions intrigue you, this book will offer you valuable and practical insights. In its pages, you will read true stories of how leaders navigated real-life challenges and reached their goals using the proprietary Re4 Coaching Model. These stories and their analyses bridge the gap between theory and practice.
A section at the back of this book provides step-by-step exercises to facilitate and support your own exploration and self- discovery.
Let the journey begin!
The world is ever-changing in unpredictable ways.
Leaders, therefore, need to constantly re-examine their assumptions of what it means to be a “great” leader as old models of leadership quickly fade into irrelevance.
In short, leaders need an agile mindset.
But how can leaders become agile?
We need to update and disrupt past definitions of leadership. To challenge ourselves and test our relevance often. We need to recognize challenges swiftly and respond decisively, especially when our environment is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility shows the way by describing how leaders met challenging conundrums with agility and emerged stronger, using the Re4 Coaching Model developed by Chuen Chuen.
This book addresses the gap between theory and practice through stories of leaders distilled into eight representational paradoxes that can occur in any culture, contexts, levels of seniority or industries.
The Re4 Coaching Model, clearly illustrated in this book, helps leaders see their world with objective clarity, understand what has to be done and why. Through this coaching model, leaders gain the resolve and confidence to overcome challenges with authenticity. Through it, they integrate theoretical learning with practical steps and learn to thrive.
Now you too can benefit from the Re4 Coaching Model as this book contains exercises with guiding questions you can use to navigate your paradoxes. It’s time to grow and thrive.

AGILE QA LEAD
Renowned leadership coach Yeo Chuen Chuen’s 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility: How to Lead and Inspire in the Real World is the perfect book for those getting into or struggling with leadership in today’s ever-changing business world and society in general, including the non-profit sector. Yeo promotes the Re4 Coaching Model, which helps leaders see their problems in new ways, and helps them learn to resolve these using a practical, individualized approach. Old forms are tossed out in favor of new ways to lead. Instead of relying on outdated leadership paradigms, each would-be leader, or struggling leader, should take a look at themselves, discover their own strengths and style, and implement change this way. In clear-cut, real-life examples, Yeo shows how to navigate the waters between two paradoxes. The answers are there, and this book will help you find and understand them.
The author writes in a way that makes complex ideas easy to understand, regardless of what your leadership skills are or have been. It’s not about how you used to do things. It’s how you can do them from this point forward. Change isn’t always easy, but the author gives examples to show how possible and easy it is. Leadership has been a one-size-fits-all concept, but it shouldn’t be. Each leader, company, and organization has unique needs. The questionnaires and worksheet questions help you think about what has been working for you, and what hasn’t, and how you can incorporate Re4 into your day-to-day leadership tasks. I recommend 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility to anyone searching for new ways to solve problems in today’s world, and to rethink the way they’ve been going about their business.
