About the book

There's a very real opportunity for those leaders who want to rebel. Rebellious leaders are agents of change and leaders of reconciliation.

Leadership today isn't working. Despite loud and boisterous leaders in business, politics and not-for-profit organizations, there's a striking leadership deficit. Leaders are failing to engage their teams and drive transformation. At government level, many people don't feel represented. And for the grass-roots and in communities, there's the lack of authentic, pragmatic voices.

But it's not all doom and gloom. There is a way forward. Leadership expert, Chris Lewis, and business coach, Inez Robinson-Odon address the most pressing challenges facing leaders today. They reveal that those who chose to quietly rebel can make a difference as a modern leader.

From addressing disharmony in the workplace and facing down divisions in the education system, through to tackling head-on the dividing lines in the culture wars, The Silent Rebellion shows you how to be a different sort of leader. Taking inspiration from unexpected places and people including Dolores Huerta, Fannie Lou Harmer, Thomas Aquinas and Rene Descartes, you'll learn what it means to become a modern leader.
