It’s during times of uncertainty that great leaders emerge. But how can leaders evolve and adapt to meet the demands of this new world of work? For leaders, these demands can be both overwhelming and daunting. The leadership strengths that have served us well in the past are unlikely to predict our success in the future. The pace of change and the expectation to build amazing teams and drive impactful business outcomes requires leaders to think differently and relentlessly adapt. The Rise of the Agile Leader gives leaders the toolkit they need to elevate their leadership capabilities, adapt their style and create amazing outcomes. Chuck Mollor shares his experiences as a management consultant, executive coach, entrepreneur, son, and father to personalize the journey of leadership. He gives real world examples, practical capability models, and actionable tips that will lead to better team engagement, a robust culture, and measurable leadership success. This book is a great how-to for anyone who aspires to be a great leader. There has never been a better time for a book like this.

The Rise of the Agile Leader accelerated my development by opening my eyes to the impact of strategic leadership. Since incorporating purposeful awareness and development of myself and my teams, we’re operating more strategically, able to pivot more quickly, and driving innovation more effectively.

We all face complex business challenges in our roles, but those who provide straightforward solutions are most successful. That’s exactly what Chuck delivers in his book. I’m focused on talent and results—Chuck’s model and tools equip current and aspiring leaders to maximize both. By bringing your whole self, being deeply emotionally intelligent, and checking your ego at the door, leadership success is within your reach!

While there is no shortage of books on the topic of leadership, Chuck has managed to create a very unique and contemporary book. Chuck blends a deep ‘empirical’ body of research with his own rich personal and professional experiences to create compelling framework for self-exploration and leadership growth. I’m struck by the pragmatism of the work born from more than 30 years of having a ‘birds eye view’ on leaders and the impact they have, both positive and negative, on the organizations they lead. You will pick up more than a few gems here.

It’s during times of uncertainty that great leaders emerge. But how can leaders evolve and adapt to meet the demands of this new world of work? For leaders, these demands can be both overwhelming and daunting. The leadership strengths that have served us well in the past are unlikely to predict our success in the future. The pace of change and the expectation to build amazing teams and drive impactful business outcomes requires leaders to think differently and relentlessly adapt. The Rise of the Agile Leader gives leaders the toolkit they need to elevate their leadership capabilities, adapt their style and create amazing outcomes.

As an advocate for servant leadership, I've always believed that a leader's greatest asset is their people. Chuck's book clearly demonstrates how agile leaders empower their people to drive business success, and do so authentically and sustainably. Insightful, articulate, and precise, The Rise of the Agile Leader is a must-read for leaders at every level.

If you are responsible for identifying, hiring, managing, or leading top talent, this book is for you. Chuck makes a strong case for why your people are an organization’s most valuable resource and how to foster a culture that allows them to perform to their potential. As someone who has been focused on getting the right leaders into growing organizations for more than 20 years, I recommend this book and would advise any current or future leader to read it as well.

As an HR, culture, and leadership development expert, I've found few resources as elaborate as The Rise of the Agile Leader that adequately express the impact of leadership adaptability and a culture-first mindset. Chuck's methodologies can be quickly adopted by leaders in every industry to see immediate positive change throughout their organizations, and to ensure they maintain a strong, healthy culture that motivates their people every day. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chuck on several occasions, he is known for his ability to inspire others to rediscover their purpose and ignite goal-achieving action. He has a natural ability to connect with people and he is a consummate professional who knows how to accelerate positive change.

The learning quest of leadership is a gift to anyone who has the interest, the persistence, the open-mindedness, and the ability to reinvent her or himself. Moreover, it is about the agility to continuously search for new ways of empowering your emotions and those you lead, grounded in your values. Chuck Mollor has played a critical part in my leadership journey, and this book is a wonderful, thoughtful, and very practical expression of his wisdom about leadership and his coaching.

This is an engaging read that offers a rich mix of self-reflection and pragmatic counsel on the principles of leadership. While many aspects of leadership are classic and stand the test of time, today’s dynamic business environment requires that leaders be sensitive to shifting demands and able to inspire others to be nimble and highly adaptive to change. The concepts that Chuck articulates are applicable at any stage of your career, from new manager to the C suite. I find it useful to select a concept that can raise my game as a leader and apply the insights from this book to practice and built that new skill. I highly recommend this book!

Chuck's book is an exercise in introspection. It's a reminder to me of the importance of being self-aware as a leader while reinforcing the importance of being authentic and true to who you are while being situational in your leadership and communication style based on your audience. If there's anything you take away from this book, it is that being able to adapt to an agile leadership style is not a destination, it's a journey—especially in today's uncharted business environment.
