Businesses are not maximising their scientific and technical human capital and are therefore missing out on innovation and growth opportunities. Global risks are intensifying, threatening the wellbeing of our children and future generations. These risks are a result of years of irrational decision-making; the world urgently needs rational thinking and less gut feeling. Having scientific thinkers at the leadership table can turn the tide.
This book hopes to inspire business and global leaders to focus on coaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) professionals to become senior leaders within their organisations. It also seeks to empower STEMM professionals everywhere to pursue influential leadership roles and ensure they undertake leadership development programs that specifically cater to their needs. There is tremendous untapped power at the intersection of influential STEMM leadership and the transformation of organisations, and the world.
Scientists in Every Boardroom presents the results of extensive research, coaching case studies and interviews on leadership development in the hope that solutions can be found to what seems to be a crisis in rational leadership. It is not about criticising past and current leaders; it is about providing new avenues of leadership that will ensure a better way forward for all organisations and for the future of our planet.
"This is an important, practical book and one that I would recommend every board puts on its reading list. Fake news is not just confined to the political daily news. The lessons and techniques contained in Scientists in Every Boardroom: Harnessing the Power of STEMM Leaders in an Irrational World should be written on every organisations walls."
David Wilkinson, Chief Editor, The Oxford Review
"Now more than ever does business need rigorous, evidence-based thinking to guide them and society through the crisis of ideologically-driven drivel that passes for much political and economic thinking from our supposed leaders. In an accessible informed fashion, this book with help business do just that. Highly recommended"
Prof Anthony M Grant, Director-Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney
"A much needed and timely reminder that quality and well credentialled scientists are required for business and community leadership in making informed decisions and implementing them, based upon scientific principles, in both meanings."
David Edmonds, Royal Australian Chemical Institute
