Excerpt From the Forward of Staying in the Game:
Forward By Jorgen Hesselberg, Co-founder of Comparative Agility, author of Unlocking Agility
“It turns out that becoming more agile—as hard as it can be—is no match for remaining agile. Continuing to improve and adapt every day requires a different kind of leadership, one that is not based on command and control but on empowerment and learning . . . This is why I was delighted to read Staying in the Game by Pamela Meyer, a book that offers a fresh and compelling perspective on agile leadership for a dynamic future. Drawing from her extensive research and practice in various fields, including amateur alpine ski racing, improvisation, organizational development, and education, Meyer introduces the concept of Embodied Agile Leadership (EAL) as a way of leading and learning with agility for life and livelihood.
EAL is not a formula or a framework but a set of principles and practices that enable leaders to engage their whole selves—body, mind, and spirit—in responding effectively to changing situations and creating a positive impact. The dynamics of EAL help leaders find their game, stay in it, and play it with energy, enthusiasm, and impact.
Meyer illustrates EAL with rich and diverse stories from amateur alpine ski racers, entrepreneurs, executives, educators, activists, and others who exemplify its principles in action. She also provides practical coaching questions and tools to help readers reflect on their own experiences and apply the lessons learned to their own contexts.”
