Being a successful business leader isn’t about giving inspirational speeches, making the decisions, and saving the day. It’s also not about success, being wealthy, receiving recognition, or calling the shots.

Leadership is about change for the purpose of innovation, and change is about people. Your relationship with your team is the most important element. To drive growth and sustainable change within an organization, you must create a culture of collaborators, challengers, and decision makers and actively empower them to drive results.

It’s Never Just Business offers valuable insights and actionable techniques for:
Transforming a group of employees into a committed, high-functioning team
Building an agile, change-ready culture that’s constantly evolving
Understanding how authority and leadership differ and that authority undermines innovation

Successful leadership is born from purpose, empathy, vulnerability, connection, and failure. Start leading by truly connecting and collaborating. Because it’s never just business; it’s always about people.

Practical advice about how valuable results are actually produced J. Scott’s book is for people who want to gain actionable insights into how leadership works – on the ground, day in and day out. Many books offer intriguing theories about leadership, execution and culture. Some of these are profound. But too many leadership books are edited to an appeal to one or another audience’s pre-existing beliefs. J has not written a book full of feel good confirmations of your worldview.
