In this book Uffe Elbæk – KaosPilot, member of the cultural grass roots movement, social activist, entrepreneur, advocate of education, decision-maker, and opinion leader – lavishly hands out stories of his many experiences as a leader and a change agent.
Above all, the book is a personal narrative, but it also holds academic reflection, models, and inspiring exercises. Along the way, Uffe Elbæk takes the reader to such different places as Aarhus, Moscow, Kiruna, San Francisco, Durban, Dublin, Reykjavik, Havana, Hong Kong, London and Copenhagen.
Leadership on the Edge is written on the basis of a good mixture of appetite, joy and curiosity. Appetite for the discovery of new patterns and connections; joy of the diversity of life; and curiosity about getting right to the edge – where it truly becomes interesting.
