'An entertaining tale with a serious message . . . we can rebuild our institutions with people at the centre and progress as the result!' Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive

Are you struggling to create profound, lasting change in your organisation? Everyday Superhero is a simple story with a powerful solution.

Meet a stressed young manager, Mae B, whose teams are being led by an authoritarian CEO. We join her on her mission to overhaul the outdated leadership systems obsessed by power, profit and process and fight for central leadership that prioritises people, purpose and principles.

It's the start of a journey into a new vision of leadership, one that has been designed to take on the challenges that organisations face today. And if we follow Mae B's lead, we can all create change, when we need it most.

Developed from the author's academic research at Duke University, this memorable adventure will help you create lasting change in complex and chaotic times.

'This powerful book tells the story of how leaders can unlock every employee's superpower to create lasting change' Dorie Clark, bestselling author of The Long Game
