Equipping Your Organization for Tomorrow's Leaders

Embracing Tomorrow’s Leader, Today

Coffee in the Clouds with Thomas Capone

An Unscripted Interview with Paul’s Videographer 

The world doesn’t need yet another leadership book.

It needs an honest conversation about how to prepare for the future of leadership.

“The book that’s been called ‘a wake up call’ for leaders in today’s world”

”The F.I.R.E.D. Leader’ is a clarion call for a seismic shift in leadership paradigms”

“A must read book for leaders, creators, disrupters and change-makers”

Through Paul’s own experiences as a leader fired from four different senior leadership roles, as well as a wealth of peer-reviewed research, case studies, and expert interviews, this book presents a compelling business narrative that serves as the catalyst to spark a number of discussions in an era where innovation is paramount and the pace of change is dizzying:

  • An industry discussion about the hypocrisy of how we recruit, onboard, train and retain top talent and why we don’t want to openly discuss this

  • An organizational discussion about leadership toxicity and dysfunction

  • A global discussion about the future of leadership and the leadership qualities we will increasingly need to navigate ongoing disruption.

Our global investment in leadership rises, yet global confidence in leaders continues to fall. It seems the more we prepare leaders for the future, the less prepared they are.

What we’ve been doing hasn’t worked and people have become disillusioned by all the ‘leadership’ books competing in this space.

Paul aim to support you and your organization in introducing F.I.R.E.D. leadership without external support.

The F.I.R.E.D. Leader Companion Guide is based on global leading practices and what I have seen work as part of supporting over 100 organizations and thousands of leaders worldwide and has been divided into the following three stages:

Stage 1: Setting the Conditions 

Stage 2: Developing the Environment 

Stage 3: Sustaining the environment 

It contains 31 critical activities I recommend organizations conduct to introduce F.I.R.E.D. leadership, including suggested activity completion timelines and a ‘done well’ checklist.

You can follow the suggested sequential order of activities or begin any of the activities based on your current knowledge, organizational maturity, and readiness for integrating F.I.R.E.D. leadership into your organization.

About the Author

I help big thinkers reframe the leadership narrative by creating the conditions for positive disruption.

I’m unapologetic about asking what people are thinking, though fearful of saying out loud. I’ve worked with thousands of leaders and leadership teams and have seen how toxic and dysfunctional environments impact them. I also appreciate firsthand what challenges keep them up at night. 

I now only work with clients who are serious about wanting to create an environment for their leaders and leadership teams to have honest conversations.

Conversations that can and do make a genuine, long-lasting impact – that have resulted in higher engagement rates, reduced turnover, and greater productivity of leaders and leadership teams.

I am not business as usual.

It’s time to wake up. I know this is difficult to hear, but if our companies are to successfully navigate ongoing disruption both now and, in the future, we will need a new approach to how our leaders and leadership teams work.

To achieve this, we’ll need more leaders who can exhibit “disruptive and rebellious” leadership qualities. You’ll not only keep your future leaders for longer if you recruit and train them in these “counterintuitive” qualities, but they’ll also help your leadership and organizational cultures grow.
