The Agile Executive

Embracing Career Risks and Rewards

Written by Marianne Broadbent, a Partner of Arbiter Leadership Technologies, this book provides frank insights into how to maximise your career opportunities.

It examines how to lead yourself with purpose, lead others with resolve, and lead with insight from others.

Not only is this book for the experienced executive but it also has important advice for those about to embark on a career.

Illustrated with real life examples, generously shared from Marianne’s own career, it provides sharp and informed insights on how to build and sustain great talent, within yourself and those you lead.

It encourages taking career risks and embracing the modern paradigm where careers aren’t as linear as they once were.

All of this is complemented with the thoughts and words of 23 other executives who provide their personal and career perspectives on their own trade-offs and ‘getting on with it’.

In short, a how-to bible for women in leadership, the agile executive and anyone interested in making the most of their career choices.
